Sustained buying support

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.1%) managed to recover all its intraday losses as the key index clawed its way into the positive territory in the final trading hour, lifted by the buying support in selected oil & gas and banking heavyweights. The lower liners finished mostly higher, while the broader market ended mostly positive.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets rebounded as the Dow rose 0.3% boosted by the stronger-than-expected pending home sales data in August 2021 that rose 8.1% MoM vs. consensus expectations of 1.4% MoM rise. European stockmarkets also advanced, while Asia stockmarkets closed mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI finished in the positive territory on the back of final hour buying despite cautious sentiment after World Bank revising downwards on Malaysia’s 2021 economic growth projection. Meanwhile, transportation and logistics players were under the limelight amid surging strong result posted by HARBOUR and Baltic Exchange Dry Index. Note that the index climbed near 5,000 amid ongoing shipping constraints and rising global demand. Meanwhile, the energy sector staged a pullback in tandem with declined crude oil price, but CPO rebounded and may retest the RM4,500.

Sector focus:. We reckon there should be follow-through buying interest in the transportation and logistics counters given the strong momentum yesterday. Besides, investors may continue to collect bashed-down stocks in recovery theme sectors such as aviation and consumer. Also, we believe some of the construction and property companies are having significant trading interest after the tabling of 12MP and ahead of the Budget 2022 announcement.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI closed in the green with marginal gains, ending just below the daily EMA20 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a red bar, while the RSI continued hovering below the 50 level. Resistance is envisaged along 1,550-1,560, while the support is set at 1,515.
