Minor profit taking

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) snapped a three-day rally on the back of profit taking activities, dragged by weakness in banking heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners ended mixed, while the broader market finished mostly positive, anchored by the energy sector (+1.7%).

Global markets:. Wall Street rebounded extended their lead as the Dow (+0.1%) rose as inflation rate rose 7.0% YoY in December 2021; in line with consensus expectations. The European stockmarkets remained upbeat, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

Bucking the regional uptrend move, the FBM KLCI harboured a mild loss as banking-propelled rallies ran out of steam on the back of mild profit taking activities. Meanwhile, the Wall Street rebounded higher as the US inflation rate came in within expectation at 7.0% YoY. Hence, with the recent continuous buying from foreign funds into our local exchange, we expect sentiment will remain sturdy and the FBM KLCI should revisit the 1,600 level in the near term. On the commodities market, the crude oil price hovered above the USD84/bbl mark as investors anticipated strengthening demand amid the economic recovery mode, while the CPO price is hovering above RM5,000.

Sector focus:. The energy counters may shine as the crude oil price continued its uptrend. Besides, investors are likely to put banking, metal-related and consumer related stocks on their radar on the back of economic recovery and easing concerns over Omicron Covid-19 variant.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI stalled its three-session rallies but hovered firmly above the daily EMA9 and moving average 200 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above the 50 level. The next resistance is located at 1,580, while the support is pegged along 1,530.
