Seeking for rebound

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.2%) trended lower and slipped below the 1,500 level again with more than two thirds of the key index components ended in the red. The lower liners extended their slide, while all 13 major sectors on the broader market finished in the red with the healthcare sector (-3.0%) taking the biggest hit.

Global markets:. US stockmarkets rebounded as the Dow (+1.9%) recovered all its previous session losses as concern over the Covid-19 Omicron variant eased on reports that South Africa hospitals have yet to be overwhelmed. European stockmarkets also advanced, but Asia stockmarkets ended mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI surrendered gains from the previous session as sentiment remained weak, in line with negative performances on the regional bourses. However, Wall Street has rebounded strongly overnight with the view that the Covid-19 Omicron variant may cause milder illness than earlier strains; this may provide buying support to the local equities. Closer to home, we should expect some rebound on the key index as investors may be repositioning into value stocks or heavyweights moving into the year-end window dressing period. On commodity markets, crude oil prices settled 4.6% higher at USD73 per barrel after Saudi Arabia raised prices for its crude sold to Asia and the US, while the CPO price saw slight rebound.

Sector focus:. Moving towards year end, we believe investors may focus on value stocks and KLCI heavyweights with the idea of window dressing activities. Besides, the firmer crude oil price may support the energy stocks at least for the near term.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook


The FBM KLCI retreated to close at intraday low as the key index fell below the key 1,500 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI is oversold below 30. The next support level is located at 1,480, while the resistance is pegged along 1,500-1,520.
