Volatility taking shape

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.9%) endured another volatile session alongside with weakness across regional peers that was marred by the selloff on Wall Street overnight. The lower liners declined, while all 13 major sectors on the broader market ended in the red with the technology sector (-1.4%) taking the heaviest hit.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets extended their decline as the Dow (-0.5%) slipped on the on-going concern over the hawkish stance from the US Federal Reserve in regards to the pace of interest rate hike and tapering of bond purchases. Both the European and Asia stockmarkets were downbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI tumbled in tandem with the weak sentiment across the regional bourses as investors took cue from the US stock markets’ slump after the US Fed meeting minutes signalled a faster timetable on interest rate hikes. We expect stock market to stay volatile and downward bias at least for the near term given the Wall Street is still on the pullback phase. However, investors may look for laggard counters with high earning visibility ahead of the February reporting season. Commodities wise, both the crude oil and CPO prices continued to trend higher.

Sector focus:. Whilst the local bourse may take cue from the overnight losses from the Wall Street, investors may look out for bargain hunting activities especially in the consumer related sector amid economic recovery, as well as the technology sector given its positive prospects over the longer run. Meanwhile, the plantation sector may gain traction ahead of the earning season.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI (-0.9%) drifted lower and broke the previous support at 1,530, dipping below the daily EMA9 and EMA120 level. Technical indicators, however were positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. The next support level is located at 1,505, while the resistance is pegged along 1,560.
