Sustained buying momentum

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) marked its fourth straight winning streak, snapping a five consecutive weekly decline to register a 2.6% WoW improvement. The lower liners were boosted by the more vibrant trading activities, while the technology sector (-0.8%) underperformed the positive broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets finished mildly lower on a choppy trading session as the Dow fell 0.03% on the sluggish jobs data with only 194,000 jobs added last month vs. consensus expectations of 500,000 jobs. European stockmarkets closed mixed, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly positive.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI continued to build on positive sentiment and elevated commodities prices on Friday, taking cue from buoyant regional markets. We expect the buying momentum on the local bourse to continue, backed by brighter economic prospects as the country will resume the interstate and overseas travel from today onwards after adults’ vaccination hitting 90%. Also, with the interstate travel may reboot the tourism and transportation companies specifically for the tourism segment. Meanwhile, the CPO price rallied, trading above RM4,950 level while the crude oil price stood above USD82 per barrel mark.

Sector focus:. Recovery theme stocks such as aviation, tourism and transportation companies may bode well following the announcement by the government over the weekend to reopen interstate travelling border. Besides, the elevated commodities environment should continue to benefit the plantation and O&G stocks.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI extended its winning streak for the fourth straight session as the key index continued hovering above the 1,560 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. The resistance is located around 1,580-1,600, while the support is located at 1,520.
