On the recovery path

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.5%) registered another strong performance as the key index extended its gains following the solid industrial production and manufacturing data. The lower liners, however turned mixed, while the broader market was fairly mixed with the technology sector (-3.1%) underperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street ended in the red despite rebounding strongly from the intraday low amid bargain hunting activities following reports that suggested that the Omicron variant may be peaking in New York. The European stockmarkets closed lower, but Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI notched higher after shaking off earlier losses amid bargain hunting activities in selected banking and industrial products & services heavyweights. Tracking the performance on Wall Street, we expect market to open with a knee jerk selloff as market may price in further risk on interest rate hike environment. Nevertheless, we are optimistic that bargain hunting activities will return to support the heavyweights. Meanwhile, market players will be monitoring the release of US inflation rate tomorrow. Commodities wise, the CPO is trading near the RM5,000, while Brent oil is hovering above USD80.

Sector focus:. Although risks might not be abating in the technology counters due to worries over inflation and upcoming interest rate, we expect decent earning visibility of the sector will provide support on the longer investment horizon. Besides, consumer and banking counters should be gaining traction due to recovery theme.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI extended its gains from the previous week as the key index stayed firmly above the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram remained flat, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. The resistance is located at 1,560, while the support level is set at 1,520.
