Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.5%) started off the week on a weaker tone on quick profit taking activities. The lower liners extended their lead, while the broader market finished higher with the technology sector (+2.6%) outperformed on the robust world semiconductor sales that rose 29.0% YoY to USD45.4bn in July 2021.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets were closed the Labour Day public holiday with futures market trending higher as investors cheered on the expectation over the delay in tapering of stimulus. European stockmarkets rebounded, while Asia stockmarkets closed mostly positive.

The Day Ahead

Bucking regional uptrend move, the FBM KLCI dipped into the negative territory in mid-morning as selected plantation, banking and Petronas-linked stocks went through some profit-taking activities. We believe the ongoing discussion on SOP relaxation in preparation for the Covid-19 endemic phase, coupled with the declining Covid-19 daily infections may continue to drive the recovery theme play across the board. Commodities wise, CPO price climbed, while aluminium price also increased on the back of concerns over raw material supply amid a coup in Guinea, the major supplier of bauxite.

Sector focus:. With the Covid-19 daily infections dropped to its lowest in 28 days, we believe focus would remain in the recovery theme stocks such as banking, consumers, construction and property. Besides, building materials counters may gain traction following higher aluminium price. Meanwhile, plantation counters may be attractive amid higher CPO price.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI reversed, erasing yesterday’s gains to close below the SMA200 level. Technical indicators remained mildly negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI stayed below the 70 level. Resistance is located at 1,600, while the support is envisaged along 1,580.
