Stability ensured

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.7%) recovered all its previous session losses, taking cue from the positive developments on Wall Street overnight as the key index was lifted by recovery in selected banking and plantation heavyweights. The lower liners extended their gains, while the broader market finished mostly upbeat.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their gains as the Dow climbed 1.5% to recoup all its weekly losses, boosted by optimism of economic outlook painted by the US Federal Reserve. Both the European and Asia stockmarkets finished mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

We think that there will be more immediate upsides for Malaysian equities towards the end of the week, on the back of the extended bargain hunting activities with the key index now finding stability at current levels. With further clarity on US fiscal policy direction and the calmer Chinese markets, this would help to provide some measure of stability after enduring a volatile spell over the past couple of weeks. Elsewhere, the broader market will be largely supported by rotational play with traders capitalising on the improvement in trading activities alongside with the positive market undertone.

Sector focus:. We reckon that the recovery theme sectors will remain as the focal point with nationwide adult population vaccination rate now above 80% level. The construction sector is poised for some limelight as construction activities gather pace, while the technology sector may trade higher, tracking the gains on Nasdaq overnight.
