Sustaining above 1,600

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.02%) traded on a rangebound manner before edging marginally higher as mild profit taking activities was also supported by bargain hunting activities in selected banking heavyweights. The lower liners closed mostly higher, but the broader market closed mostly lower.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their gains as the Dow climbed 0.4%, spurred by the on-going batch of solid corporate results, while concern over the potential stagflation has taken a backseat. European stock markets were upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets finished mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI showed marginal gains after flirting between gains and losses yesterday. Given the foreign funds are still buying into our local equities, we expect the bullish momentum to sustain at least for the near term ahead of the tabling of Budget 2022 next week. Also, we still expect recovery theme stocks may remain in focus with the reopening of business activities in various segments following the ongoing vaccination programme. Meanwhile, both the CPO and crude oil prices extended their rally, with the former surging above RM5,000 and the latter trading above USD85 per barrel mark.

Sector focus:. Investors may continue focus on the laggards of the recovery theme play amid recovery while awaiting Budget 2022 next week. Sectors such as consumer, construction and renewable energy may be in focus. Besides, we expect the energy and plantation counters should be lifted by the firmer crude oil and CPO prices. Technology stocks may return into the limelight after the recent consolidation and a positive overnight Wall Street.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI extended its gains for the third straight session and closed firmly above the 1,600 psychological level. Technical indicators remained positive; the MACD Histogram has extended a green bar, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. Next resistance is located at 1,620, while the support is pegged along 1,580.
