Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.7%) extended its losses alongside with the weakness across regional peers after languishing in the negative zone for most off the trading session. The lower liners also retreated, while all 13 major sectors on the broader market finished lower with the healthcare sector (-2.1%) underperformed.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets recovered from their intraday losses to extend their gain as the Dow climbed 0.2%, boosted by optimism over the recent bath of strong corporate earnings. European closed mixed, while Asia stockmarkets finished mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

Investors started off the week on a softer note as both the FBM KLCI and the broader market slumped, in line with the negative performances in China and Hong Kong shares amid concerns over tightening regulations on selected sectors. However, we expect bargain hunting activities to emerge on the local bourse after the selldown as market players might have priced in news from China or Hong Kong. Meanwhile, investors should focus on vaccination rate instead of ongoing high number of daily Covid-19 cases as government will be looking on reopening of business activities going forward. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices extended their gains.

Sector focus:. After the heavy selldown yesterday, we expect to see buying interest in plantation and oil & gas stocks amid rising commodities prices. Also, technology stocks could expect higher buying interest after some selldown yesterday.

The FBM KLCI slipped into the negative territory shortly after the market opened and closed below the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators turned negative as the MACD Histogram has turned into a red bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. Given the technical readings are still negative, the key index may continue to consolidate above the support around 1,500, while the resistance is located at 1,530
