Dour undertone resumes

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.7%) trended lower after hovering largely in the negative territory throughout the session yesterday with more than two third of the key index components finished lower. The lower liners extended their losses with the exception of the energy sector (+0.1%).

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets retreated from their peak as Dow (-0.3%) slipped on concern over the inflationary pressure following the strong Producer Price Index data that rose 8.6% YoY in October 2021. European stockmarkets were downbeat, while Asian stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI skidded on the back of further selling pressure amid mixed regional market performances, despite the Malaysia’s Industrial Production Index (IPI) increased 2.5% YoY and improved employment readings. Meanwhile, the energy sector was the sole gainer on the broader market as crude oil price remained elevated, hovering above the USD84 per barrel at the time of writing. While investors may remain on tenterhooks ahead of Melaka State election, we believe the bashed-down counters could be sweet spot for bargain hunting activities especially counters with solid earnings prospects.

Sector focus:. Traders may focus on 5G related counters following the launch of the country’s first 5G network today while the government anticipating further expansion next year. Meanwhile, the oil and gas counters may gain traction in line with the advanced crude oil price.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI retreated after registering two-day winning streak amid lacklustre in trading activities. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. Investors could monitor for the support level located at 1,500-1,520, while the resistance is envisaged along 1,550-1,560.
