Broader market still upbeat

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) edged mildly lower on a lacklustre trading mode yesterday, dragged by weakness in selected banking and telco heavyweights. The lower liners, however, remained upbeat, while broader market closed mostly positive, led by the transportation & logistics sector (+2.1%).

Global markets:. Wall Street turned volatile as the Dow (-0.8%) retreated on the back of the hawkish tone from the US Federal Reserve on the interest rate direction and US and EU may impose more sanctions against Russia. The European stock markets ended mostly negative, but Asia stock markets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI saw another session of pullback amid further profit taking in banking and telecommunication heavyweights. Meanwhile, global sentiment may stay fragile amid concerns over more hawkish stance of the US Federal Reserve’s action to tame inflation. Also, we expect the unresolved tension between Russia and Ukraine could limit the upside potential over the near term. Nevertheless, we expect the reopening of travel borders may continue to benefit the economy, while investors could position themselves ahead of the GE15 (albeit the timeline is still uncertain). On the commodities market, both the crude oil and CPO price remained elevated despite a mild pullback overnight.

Sector focus:. We believe traders will continue to focus on O&G and plantation sector amid the elevated Brent oil and CPO prices. Meanwhile, recovery-themed sectors such as consumer, banking, transportation & logistics and aviation may benefit following the reopening of borders. Besides, trading interest may build up on construction and building material sector ahead of the GE15.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI managed to hold above the daily EMA9. Technical indicators remained mixed as the Histogram is below zero, but the RSI is hovering above the 50 level. Resistance is set around 1,600-1,620, while the support is located at 1,580.
