Re-capturing 1,600 once more

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) edge mildly higher to close above the 1,600 level after recovering all its intraday losses, lifted by gains in selected banking and Petronas-related heavyweights on last Friday. The lower liners, however, retreated, while the broader market ended mixed.

Global markets:. Wall Street took another beating as the Dow (-2.8%) sank on disappointing corporate earnings from Verizon Communications and American Express, coupled with the prospects of more aggressive interest rate hikes. The European stock markets also turned downbeat, while Asia stock markets finished mostly negative.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI registered its third-session gains on Friday as the optimism in banking heavyweights overshadowed the concerns over weakness across regional markets. However, we expect the overnight tumble on Wall Street may weigh on the local sentiment, especially within the technology sector as the Nasdaq fell below the key 13,000 level. Meanwhile, we expect the Indonesia banning the export of palm oil to ease domestic shortages of cooking oil may boost the sentiment for FCPO; the FCPO traded above RM6,300 last Friday. On the Brent crude oil it is hovering above the psychological level of USD105.

Sector focus:. The technology sector may remain under pressure following the overnight plunge in Nasdaq. On the other hand, investors may put recovery-themed stocks on radar prior to the earning season, in anticipation of improving earnings capability amid smooth economic recovery. Also, we expect the plantation sector to perform positively with the Indonesia export ban.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI marked its third-session gains as the key index climbed back above the 1,600 level. Technical indicators, however, remained mixed as MACD Histogram was below zero, while the RSI hovered above 50. Next resistance is pegged around 1,620, while 1,600 has turned support, followed by 1,580
