Holding up well

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.1%) managed to extend its positive trend as the key index recovered from its intraday low, lifted by strong buying support from foreign institutional players. The lower liners also marched higher, while the technology sector (+1.9%) outperformed the mixed broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their gains as the Dow added 1.0%, boosted by the optimism surrounding the prospect of a short-term US debt limit extension with focus now shifting towards the unemployment date. Both the European and Asia stockmarkets closed on an upbeat note.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI rose for the third consecutive session as the key index raced higher into the closing bell, in tandem with regional peers that tracked the overnight Wall Street rally. The key index may continue to track the positive sentiment in Wall Street given the fading US debt ceiling worries, coupled with the interstate border reopening talks as well as the firmer crude oil price, which has rebounded and is trading above the USD81 per barrel level. Meanwhile, the CPO price saw a mild pullback. Besides, we believe traders may lookout for sector that may benefit under the Budget 2022, which will be tabled at the end of this month.

Sector focus:. We reckon the energy sector may remain attractive to investors with the crude oil price climbing higher. Besides, recovery theme sector such as aviation and consumer may still bode well under the recovery scenario. Also, the technology and telco sectors may mirror the rally in Nasdaq overnight and we believe both sectors are potential beneficiaries under the Budget 2022.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI extended rally for a third session, crossing above the resistance level at 1,560. Technical indicators turned positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI continued hovered above the 50 level. Should the key index hold above 1,560, the next resistance is pegged along 1,580-1,600. Support is located at 1,520.
