Mixed sentiment

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.4%) was boosted by the eleventh-hour buying support in selected banking and Petronas-related heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners, however, turned downbeat, while the broader market was mostly negative with the technology sector (-2.4%) underperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street turned volatile as the Dow (-0.5%) erased all its intraday gains to close lower, dragged down by the extended selldown in technology shares with investors shifted their focus towards value driven stocks. Elsewhere, both the European and Asia stockmarkets closed mixed

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI bounced from the previous day’s slide, supported by buying interest within selected industrial products & services as well as banking heavyweights. However, we believe market sentiment on the local front will remain cautious as the rally on Wall Street faded after hitting respective intraday highs for the major indices. Investors are still digesting and uncertain on the pace of the potential interest rate hikes in the US. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil price saw mild a retreat, but remained firm on the uptrend cycle on the back of expectations over stronger demand under the recovery environment.

Sector focus:. Following the Wall Street’s decline overnight, we may see the technology stocks extending its consolidation move. On the other hand, we favour energy and banking stocks over the near term. Meanwhile, consumer sector may see greater demand under the economic recovery phase.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded and closed at intraday high, holding above the SMA200 for the third straight session. 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 seen at 1,580, while the support is set at 1,530-1,540.
