Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-2.0%) declined for the eighth session after hovering in the negative territory for the whole trading session, succumbing to selling pressure in PCHEM and banking heavyweights. The lower liners trended lower, while the broader market was painted in red led by the property sector (-4.0%).

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets started November with record high as the Dow rose 0.3%, as corporate earnings lifted investors’ optimism on economic recovery. The European stockmarkets ended in green, while the Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

Following the strong hammered down situation on the local front, we expect the sentiment will remain more negative over the near term without any significant positive fresh leads in the market. Nevertheless, with the Wall Street still in the upward trending tone, buying interest might spillover to technology stocks on the local front. Still, we expect mild bargain hunting activities to emerge once market is able to look beyond Cukai Makmur and contract notes stamp duty going forward. Commodities wise, the CPO price is hovering below RM5,000 level, while the crude oil price was mildly higher.

Stocks to watch:. Technology could be a sweet spot given the earnings certainty going forward. Also, we expect traders to lookout for recovery theme stocks under the tourism and consumer sectors. Meanwhile, TAWIN securing a RM2.5bn contract from South Korea’s POSCO may spur trading interest within metal related sector.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI closed significantly lower for the session post-budget, turning into a downtrend formation. The MACD Histogram has expanded lower, while the RSI is below 50. We believe the FBMKLCI could consolidate within the support zone between the 1,515-1,530 levels. Meanwhile, resistance will be located around 1,550-1,560
