Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) erased all its intraday gains to trend lower for the fifth straight session, pressured by weakness in selected banking, telco and gloves heavyweights. The lower liners also extended their slide, but the broader market ended mixed with the healthcare sector (-1.2%) taking the worst hit.

Global markets:. Wall Street turned choppy as the Dow (-0.8%) erased all its intraday gains as the soaring crude oil prices may keep inflation rate at persistently high levels and potentially weighs into economic slow-down. The European stock markets also trended lower, while Asia stock markets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI lost ground in the final-hour selloff as investors struggled to find a floor amid concerns over elevated inflation and costs pressure. Given the slight negative tone on Wall Street, technology stocks will be under pressured once again. Meanwhile, the elevated Brent crude oil price trading above USD123, coupled with the trucker strike in South Korea could further threaten the global supply chain disruptions and add risks to the global inflation. Having said that, we believe there will be positive trading activities within the recovery-themed sectors as we are transitioning to the endemic phase. Meanwhile, the CPO is traded around RM6,450 and within its uptrend movement.

Sector focus:. We opine that the tight supply in the oil market due to unresolved Ukraine-Russia tension and recovering demand from China will continue to support the oil prices, thus benefiting the energy sector. Besides, we are positive on the consumers, REITs and transportation & logistics sectors.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI finished at intraday low, dragged by final-hour selloff. Technical indicators turned negative the MACD Histogram has extended fell below the zero line, while the RSI continued to stay below the 50 level. Immediate support is pegged at 1,500-1,510, while resistance is set around 1,570-1,580.
