Downtrend still prevalent

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.6%) erased most of its previous session gains after lingering mostly in the negative zone yesterday with more than two third of the key index components in the red. The lower liners also pullback, while broader market closed mostly weaker led by the plantation sector (-1.8%).

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets erased all their intraday gains to close mildly lower as the Dow fell 0.04% on concern over the threat of rising inflation, coupled with the prospects of US Federal Reserve withdrawal of stimulus measures. European stockmarkets were upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI’s rebound was short lived and surrendered another round gains from the previous session succumbed to profit taking activities in selected heavyweights. Although R-naught in Malaysia for Covid-19 is rising, we believe it should be well contained as vaccination rate has been improving gradually. Hence, we opine that the resumption of business activities and reopening of travel borders may bode well for the economy going forward. Investors could find opportunities in recently beaten-down technology and consumer related counters amid the earning seasons for bargain hunting opportunities. Meanwhile, the CPO price is still hovering below the RM5,000, while the crude oil and gold prices declined.

Sector focus:. We remained optimistic in consumers and tourism related counters on the back of reopening of business activities and the anticipation of international borders to be uplifted. Besides, the technology sector may continue to advance considering the bright earning prospects.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI retreated but still hovering below the 1,520 support level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered below the 50 level. The support level is located at 1,520, followed by 1,500, while the next resistance is pegged along 1,540-1,550.
