Pullback persists

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.2%) trended lower after hovering in the negative zone throughout the session as the key index fell 0.6% WoW. The lower liners edged mostly higher, while the broader market closed mostly lower with the REIT sector (- 0.7%) underperformed.

Global markets:. The US stock markets closed mixed as the Dow climbed 0.2%, but the S&P 500 and Nasdaq shed 0.1% and 0.8% respectively, dragged down by concern over inflationary pressure and pullback in technology stocks. European stock markets finished mostly higher, while Asia stock markets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI closed lower on Friday amid lacklustre trading interest as investors remained on the tenterhooks ahead of the Budget 2022. The local bourse may continue to trade sideways for the week amid dearth of fresh lead while investors awaiting more details on Budget 2022 to be tabled on Friday. Meanwhile, the recovery theme sectors might gain momentum as bargain hunting activities may emerge on the back of brighter economic prospects. Commodities wise, the CPO price staged a pullback, while the crude oil price held above the USD85 per barrel mark.

Sector focus:. We believe the recent pullback of some recovery theme sectors will be a good opportunity for bargain hunting. Investors may focus on banking, property, and consumer related stocks as well as construction sector ahead of the Budget 2022.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI pulled back further from the 1,600 psychological level as the key index closed around its daily EMA 9 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI hovering above the 50 level, showing some overbought signal. Resistance is located at 1,600, while the support is pegged along 1,580.
