Re-capturing 1,500

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.5%) spurt higher in the final trading hour yesterday and ended above the 1,500 level with two-thirds of the key index components traded in the positive territories. The lower liners ended mixed, while broader market closed mostly higher with the plantation sector (+1.0%) leading the pack.

Global markets:. US stockmarkets endured a choppy trading session as the Dow closed on a flat note, on concern over tighter restriction measures to contain the spread of Omicron variant could dent the progress of economic recovery. European stockmarkets extended their losses, while Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI posted marginal gains on the back of softer trading activities; the daily trading value stood at RM1.59bn. Although the local bourse performance was in line with the regional stock markets yesterday, we believe selling pressure could emerge tracking the negative sentiment from the Wall Street. Fresh concerns over the Omicron variant still persist as UK implemented new Covid-19 restrictions to prevent a spike in Covid-19 cases. Nevertheless, we believe window-dressing activities may emerge in the near future on heavyweights. On the commodity markets, the crude oil price fell 1.85%, but hovering above USD74, while the CPO price extended losses.

Sector focus:. We believe the transportation sector may capture traders’ attention on the back of recovering market demand, in line with the increasing tone on Baltic Exchange Dry Index.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded to close above the key 1,500 level, flirting around the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators have turned slightly positive as the MACD Histogram has turned higher, while the RSI is climbing upwards from the oversold region towards 50. The support level is located at 1,485, while the next resistance is pegged along 1,520-1,535.
