Back into consolidation

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.1%) was bogged down by emergence of profit taking activities and more than two-thirds of the key index components ended in red. The lower liners remained mixed, while the broader market ended closed mostly negative with the energy sector (-1.6%) underperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street edged lower as the Dow (-0.5%) fell after the buoyant ISM Manufacturing PMI that rose to 56.1 in May 2022 fuelled further concerns over the pace of tightening from the US Federal Reserve. The European stock markets remained downbeat, while Asia stock markets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

On the first day of June, the FBM KLCI surrendered big gains from the previous session as global inflationary pressure remains a concern which may derail the economic recovery. Investors may trade cautiously following the overnight decline on Wall Street. Nevertheless, traders are likely to lookout on selected technology stocks with solid balance sheet and growing quarterly results (at least positive QoQ growth). On the commodity markets, the crude oil was traded around USD116 per barrel mark, while the CPO is trading above RM6,300.

Sector focus:. We believe the energy sector may continue to shine amid firm crude oil price, driven by the Ukraine-Russia tension as well as the easing in China may boost demand. Besides, traders could focus on consumer, property and transportation & logistics stocks as they are gaining momentum yesterday.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI reversed its gains and closed just around the 200-day moving average on the back. Technical indicators turned mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended a positive bar, while the RSI dipped below the 50 level. The next support level is located 1,530, followed by 1,500, while the resistance is set around 1,570-1,580.
