Tabling of 12th Malaysia Plan

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.5%) pullback after erasing all its intraday gains from the start of the trading bell as sentiment turned dour following the lingering concern over China's Evergrande Group defaulted a US$83.5m coupon bond payment. The lower liners retreated, while the broader market ended mostly lower.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets edged mildly higher as the Dow added 0.1% after recovering from its intraday losses as traders turned defensive following the China’s Evergrande Group’s debt woes and prospectus of reduction in US stimulus. European stockmarkets were downbeat, while Asia stockmarkets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI finished the volatile week in the negative territory, mirroring the weakness across China and Hong Kong stock markets amid investors’ fret over Evergrande debt concerns; the key index was mainly dragged by TENAGA and selected banking heavyweights. The local bourse may remain sideways with investors eyeing on the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) which will be tabled today; we noticed construction and property sectors have some trading activities prior to this event. Commodities wise, the crude oil price rose above the USD78 level, while the CPO price declined. Baltic Exchange Dry Index still hovered at its 12 years high despite a retreat on Friday.

Sector focus:. With the adult vaccination rate increased to 83.1%, the government’s prediction to reopen cross state travel in 3 weeks might benefit the aviation and tourism counters. Other sectors such as consumer and technology may also trend higher. Besides, the firmer crude oil price may shine a light on the oil & gas sector.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI retreated as the key index still closed below the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators were negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar and the RSI hovered below the 50 level. Resistance is located at 1,550-1,560, while the support is pegged along 1,515.
