Turning the tide

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+1.9%) delivered a solid performance with more than two thirds of the key index components finished higher amid the calmer market sentiment. The lower liners extended their gains, while the plantation sector (+8.0%) emerged as the biggest winner on the mostly positive broader market.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets came off from their session lows to trend higher as the Dow rose 0.3% on optimism over the potential agreement between Republicans and Democrats to avert a government debt default. European stockmarkets turned downbeat, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI jumped and closed at intraday high for the second session, lifted by the firm buying momentum in plantation stocks amid the surge in CPO price to above RM4,800. The market sentiment may remain positive-bias with both the Johor and Pahang states moving into the next phase of NRP starting from 8th of October, while vaccination rate for adult population stood at 88.4%. Commodities wise, the CPO price rallied amid tighter supply, while the copper and aluminium prices fell on demand fears. Over to the Brent crude oil, it retraced from the USD83 but still trading above the USD80 per barrel mark for now.

Sector focus:. We reckon the transportation & logistics sector may gain traction in tandem with the fourth session rise in Baltic Exchange Dry Index. Meanwhile, the investors may eye the recovery theme sectors especially aviation and tourism amid positive prospects from the resumption of interstate travel going forward.
