Still lacklustre

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) experienced another dull session to close mildly higher amid the lack of fresh leads with quick profit taking sapping further upside. The lower liners edged lower, while the broader market finished mixed with the energy sector (+2.1%) outperformed as crude oil prices continue to ascend.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their lead as the Dow (+0.2%) was spurred by the on-going batch of strong corporate earnings, coupled with the solid labour data. European stockmarkets ended mixed, while Asian stockmarkets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

Despite lacklustre trading activities on the local front, we noticed foreign funds have been buying into local equities over the past two trading days. However, we expect the broader market will trade in a rangebound mode while investors keeping an eye on the unemployment rate and GDP growth rate which will be released today and Friday respectively. Also, we expect market players to trade on a cautious manner ahead of the Malacca state election. Meanwhile, Malaysia Singapore quarantine-free travel lane will be launched for fully-vaccinated citizens at end-November, signalling a brighter prospect for aviation, tourism and consumer sectors. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices advanced.

Sector focus:. Investors may position themselves in aviation, tourism and consumer sectors as they might benefit from the proposal of quarantine-free travel lane. Besides, the technology stocks may be under the limelight following VITROX’s bonus issue and JFTECH’s main board transfer announcements, respectively.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI registered tiny gains for the second trading session, but the key index continued hovering below the SMA100 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. The resistance is envisaged along 1,550-1,560, while the support is pegged at 1,520.
