Surpassing 1,600

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.3%) re-captured the 1,600 level with more than two thirds of the key index components finished higher as the key index rose 0.8% YoY. The lower liners also marched higher, while the broader market closed mostly higher led by the construction and technology sector that rose 1.4% each.

Global markets:. Wall Street rebounded from a volatile session as the Dow (+0.4%) rose as dip buying activities emerged in the second half of the trading session offset the concern over the political developments in the Middle East. Elsewhere, both the European and Asia stock markets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI finished higher for the second week as investors brushed off some concerns over the Russia-Ukraine conflict while looking forward to the reopening of border on 1st April 2022. We expect the recovery-themed sector to remain resilient prior to this event. Meanwhile, commodity prices are likely to remain volatile on the back of the unresolved conflict between Russia-Ukraine and the Covid-19 related restriction in China where Shanghai will be on a lockdown mode in few stages for 9 days. The crude oil price traded above USD120 per barrel mark, while the CPO price hovered above RM6,000.

Sector focus:. Investors may continue to put recovery-themed stocks on radar, including consumer, banking and tourism. Besides, the commodities related counters are likely to stay upbeat on the back of elevated commodity prices environment. Another catalyst in the current market sentiment may include the speculated GE15 that will be held in the 2H2022, which may boost the trading activities in construction and building material stocks.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rose for the third session as the key index surpassed the key 1,600 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Next resistance is located around 1,620, while the support is pegged around 1,580.
