Rebound from support

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.5%) snapped a three-day losing streak, lifted by gains in selected oil & gas, plantation and gloves heavyweights as crude oil and crude palm oil charged higher. The lower liners finished mostly higher, while the energy sector (+4.3%) outperformed the mixed broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets rebounded as the Dow gained 0.9%, boosted by the stronger than expected ISM Non-Manufacturing data in September 2021 that rose to 61.9 vs consensus expectations of 60.0. Both the European stockmarkets also advanced, while Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI snapped three-session losing streak to close in the positive territory, underpinned by bargain hunting activities in selected heavyweights. Tracking the rebound on Wall Street, the key index may continue to trade higher over the near term. Also, the reopening of economic activities should support the market sentiment and the recovery narrative at least for now. Commodities wise, the crude oil price stood above USD82 per barrel mark, while the crude palm oil price advanced, closing above RM4,700. Meanwhile, the Baltic Exchange Dry Index saw gains for the third straight session, rising to above 5,400.

Sector focus:. The firmer CPO and crude oil price may provide catalyst for buying interest into oil & gas and plantation stocks. Meanwhile, investors may continue to accumulate transportation stocks amid higher Baltic Exchange Dry Index. Besides, investors may focus on technology stocks following overnight rally in Nasdaq.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded to close at intraday high, but still hovering below the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators were mixed as the MACD Histogram has turned into a green bar, while the RSI continued hovering below the 50 level. Resistance is envisaged along 1,550-1,560, while the support is located at 1,515.
