Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) edged mildly lower, dragged down by weakness in selected plantation and Petronas-related heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners, however, marched higher, while the technology sector (+2.1%) outperformed the mostly negative broader market with several stocks closed at limit-up.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets was closed for the Independence Day public holiday with futures market pointing to a mixed opening. European stockmarkets were boosted by the Eurozone’s Markit Composite PMI at 59.5 in June 2021; the strongest reading since June 2006, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI started the week with mild losses as market sentiment remained tepid on the back of high number of Covid-19 infections despite improvement in vaccination rates. Nevertheless, the local bourse may see bargain hunting activities emerging especially in most of the oversold counters. Meanwhile, millions of Covid-19 vaccine doses are expected to arrive in Malaysia in July, which could see another breakthrough in vaccination rate. Commodities wise, both the CPO and oil prices extended their uptrend move.

Sector focus:. The plantation and oil & gas counters may be in focus in line with the rising commodities prices. Besides, the technology sector is likely to track the movements in Nasdaq last week, do note that technology sectors may perform well in the month of July (based on statistics over the past 20 years).

The FBM KLCI posted modest losses to settle at another fresh year-to-date low. Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI is hovering below the 30 level in the oversold region. With that, bargain hunting activities may emerge with resistance set at 1,560-1,580, while the support level is envisaged around 1,500-1,520.
