Stretching higher

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.4%) started off the week on a buoyant manner to record its fifth winning session, boosted by gains in selected banking heavyweights. The lower liners also extended their upbeat tone, while the healthcare (-0.8%) and utilities (-0.1%) sectors declined on the broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their losses as the Dow fell 0.7% after the rally of crude oil prices sparked further concern that the inflationary pressure may not be transitionary. European stockmarkets ended mixed, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI climbed for another session, with banking stocks leading the way higher as investors’ sentiment turned more positive following the government’s announcement on interstate border reopening over the weekend. Despite the selling pressure on Wall Street, we expect the foreign funds that has continuously buying into the local equities, coupled with the firmer commodity prices in crude oil and crude palm oil will provide a healthy sentiment to the local exchange over the near term. As Malaysia is ready to enter the endemic phase, prospects of the economic recovery should persist and positive momentum could continue at least for the near term. The crude oil price was traded above USD83 per barrel mark, while the CPO price is consolidating around the all-time-high region.

Sector focus:. Plantation and energy stocks may remain upbeat considering the high commodity prices. Besides, the recovery theme stocks are still under the limelight following the interstate border reopening announcement. We expect the renewable energy stocks may trade higher ahead of the Budget 2022.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI started the week on an upbeat mode as the key index touched the SMA 200 level before closing above 1,570. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI is above 50. The resistance is pegged along 1,580-1,600, while the support is located at 1,550.
