Mild profit taking

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.2%) pared some of its previous session gains, dragged down by mild profit taking activities in selected plantation and banking heavyweights. The lower liners, however, extended their lead, while the broader market ended mixed with the energy sector (+3.8%) outperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street remained volatile as the Dow (-0.1%) erased all its intraday gains to close mildly lower, while the S&P 500 (+0.5%) and Nasdaq (+1.6%) was buoyed by the strong earnings from Amazon (+13.5%). The European stockmarkets remained downbeat, but Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI faltered on Friday after an overnight plunge on Wall Street spooked investors, underperforming the regional markets that were broadly positive. Wall Street staged a rebound overnight as the better-than-expected January jobs report propelled shares on the broader market. Nevertheless, the local bourse could remain volatile with the daily Covid-19 cases breached above the 10,000 mark on Sunday under the Omicron wave. On the commodities market, the crude oil price rallied towards USD93 per barrel mark, while the CPO price hovered above RM5,600, both showing no sign of slowing down.

Sector focus:. We expect the technology stocks to stage a tentative recovery following recent selloff. Besides, the healthcare sector may come under limelight amid surging daily Covid-19 cases. While the energy and plantation counters may see mild profit taking activities, earnings outlook for the sectors should remain positive.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI took a breather after staging a minor rebound in the previous session; the key index closed around its daily EMA-9 level. Technical indicators turned slightly positive as the MACD is flattening around the zero level, while the RSI is pointing towards 50. Resistance is set at 1,530, while the support is located around 1,505.
