Market Review

Malaysia:.. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) started off the week on a dour tone as the key index recorded its third day losing streak, dragged down by weakness in selected banking and gloves heavyweights. The lower liners finished mostly lower, while the technology sector (+2.8%) outperformed the mostly negative broader market.

Global markets:.. The US stockmarkets reverse their intraday gains to close mostly lower as the Dow fell 0.3% as the ISM Manufacturing PMI in July 2021 eased to 59.5; below consensus expectations of 60.9 amid supply chain constraints. European stockmarkets rebounded, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher. The Day Ahead Bucking the regional uptrend, the FBM KLCI marked the third consecutive session of declines as investors again pulled back from the market amid continuing Covid- 19 woes and recent political developments. Investors are likely to be more cautious in selecting stocks given the heightened political uncertainties, but there might be some buying interest in companies with bright outlook amid the upcoming corporate earnings season. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices declined.

Sector focus:.. As selected technology stocks have release stellar results recently, they may continue with their uptrend move respectively and could spillover to the rest of the technology sector including EMS players. Besides, building material segment may see improve trading interest after China lifted the export tariff last week.

The FBM KLCI pulled back further from the 1,500 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended another red bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. Investors are likely to trade in a cautious mode, with the next support level set at 1,480, followed by 1,450, while the resistance is located at 1,500
