Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-1.2%) erased all its previous session gains, dragged by broad-based selling as weakness was in line with the negative regional markets. The lower liners extended their losses, while all 13 major sectors on the broader market declined with the healthcare sector (-2.2%) taking the worst hit.

Global markets: The US stockmarkets remained downbeat as the Dow fell 0.4% on mounting concern over the spread of Covid-19 delta variant that may impede the economic growth. European stockmarkets ended mixed, while Asia stockmarkets closed mostly weaker.

The Day Ahead

Overall, the FBM KLCI and broader market declined with the returned of selling pressure from foreign funds; it turned net sellers with a net outflow of RM63.0m, snapping 12 sessions of net buying streak. Glove counters extended their retreat amid the on-going vaccination progress. Going forward, we expect recovery theme to stay focus in the anticipation of the reopening of more economic activities, where most stocks might be oversold after being bashed down yesterday. Commodities wise, both CPO and crude oil prices dipped, while the aluminium price continued trending higher.

Sector focus: Investors are likely to remain optimistic with the recovery theme and focusing on recovery sectors such as construction, building, material, banking and consumer as well as transportation and logistics. Besides, a keynote address at the National Recovery Summit yesterday aiming to have 5G coverage in 80% of populated areas by end 2024 may bode well for 5G related counters.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI reversed and closed below SMA200 level, losing its grip on the 1,580 support level. Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI has hooked down again. With the key index crossed below the 1,580 support level, next support is pegged along 1,560, while the resistance is located at 1,600-1,620.
