Reaching out for 1,600 again

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.3%) extended its upward momentum, driven by gains across selected plantation and banking heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners, however, were mixed, while the broader market closed mostly higher, anchored by the energy sector (+1.6%) as oil prices recovered.

Global markets:. Wall Street endured another volatile session as the Dow (-1.1%) fell following the spike in treasury yields as traders are pricing in a potential 50 basis points rate hike in the following Federal Reserve meetings. The European stockmarkets ended mostly upbeat, while Asia stock markets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended its rebound, mainly buoyed by gains in banking heavyweights as investors shrugged off the negative tone across the regional markets and focused on the economic recovery following the reopening of travel borders. While foreign funds continue to support the local bourse, the overnight selldown on Wall Street may impact negatively in the technology sector. Investor may also monitor Malaysia’s inflation data which will be releasing later today. Meanwhile, the Brent oil and FCPO are still hovering above USD105 per barrel and RM6,300 respectively.

Sector focus:. As the commodity prices remained well supported, investors may continue to position themselves in the energy and plantation stocks. Besides, we expect broad based recovery in various sectors on the back of recovery in economic activities following the reopening of travel borders.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rose for the second straight day and finished above the daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators were mixed as MACD Histogram remained below zero, while the RSI hovered above 50. Resistance is envisaged at 1,600, followed by 1,620, while the support is located at 1,580.
