A technical rebound

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.5%) halted a 7-day losing streak, boosted by bargain hunting activities with more than two-thirds of the key index components ended higher yesterday. The lower liners also advanced, while the plantation sector (- 0.5%) was the sole underperformer on the positive broader market.

Global markets:. Wall Street erased all its intraday gains in the final trading hour as the Dow (-0.4%) fell after US Federal Reserve signals that interest rate hike will be coming soon in March.. The European stockmarkets extended their recovery, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI rebounded, fuelled by bargain hunting activities emerged after seven sessions of losses. However, we believe profit taking activities might emerged in the local bourse taking cue from the softer performances on Wall Street following the Fed’s confirmation on the upcoming rate hikes direction and continuous bond tapering moving forward. On a side note, the Festive Season Maximum Price Control Scheme (SHMMP) for the Chinese New Year may impact the poultry and consumer-related sectors. Commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices rose, with the latter closing just slightly below the USD90 per barrel mark.

Sector focus:. We expect trading interest will persist in the commodities related sectors such as plantation and energy stocks, as the CPO and crude oil price remained firm. Selectively, bargain hunting activities may still be seen in the technology sector as most of them are oversold.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI snapped the seven-session losses to close higher. Currently, the FBM KLCI is hovering below the SMA50 level. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI continued to hover below 50. Key support will be at 1,500-1,505, while the resistances will be pegged around 1,530-1,570.
