Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) recorded its third straight decline after erasing all its intraday gains, dragged down by weakness in selected banking heavyweights. The lower liners trended mostly lower, while the technology sector (+1.5%) anchored the mostly positive broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets retreated as the Dow slipped 0.9%, dragged down by the selloff in technology stocks, coupled with the threat of rising inflation. Both the European stockmarkets extended their losses, while Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI ended marginally lower, as foreign funds inflow declined for the session amid mixed regional market performances on the back of concerns over US debt ceiling crisis as well as China Evergrande’s issues. However, trading interest was noticed in recovery theme sector as recovery in sight with the adult vaccination rate hitting 88.0%, and the number of Covid-19 daily confirmed cases trending lower. Meanwhile, the crude oil price settled above USD81 per barrel mark as OPEC+ stick to its schedule of gradual monthly output increases. The CPO price stood firmer above the RM4,500 mark.

Sector focus:. We believe the rally in Brent oil price should bode well for the trading of oil & gas stocks. Besides, trading interest in recovery theme stocks such as aviation, consumer, building material and property should continue.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI marked third session of decline as the key index continued to hover below the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended another red bar, while the RSI is still below the 50 level. Resistance is located at 1,550-1,560, while the support is pegged along 1,500- 1,515.
