Nevertheless, the plans to set up more than 30 large-scale vaccination centres by 19th July may speed up the vaccination rate, thus benefiting the recovery theme sector such as essential consumer stocks. Meanwhile, technology stocks are still favourable to trend higher amid positive Nasdaq moves.

Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI is hovering below the 30 level. The key index may trade in a tight range moving forward with resistance set at 1,560-1,680, while the support level is envisaged around 1,500-1,520.
