Trudging lower

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.1%) reversed all its previous session gains, taking cue from weakness on Wall Street overnight as the key index slipped -2.5% WoW. The lower liners sank lower, while the construction sector (+1.7%) was the sole winner on the negative broader market.

Global markets:. Wall Street ended mixed as the Dow (-0.1%) edged mildly lower on a choppy trading session, but the S&P 500 (+0.2%) and Nasdaq (+1.4%) advanced on bargain hunting activities in beaten down technology stocks. The European stock markets ended mixed, but Asia stock markets closed mostly negative.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended its whipsaw moves on Friday in a broad sell-off amid growing worries on inflationary pressure and recession fears. As sentiment on Wall Street remained fragile following the mixed performance overnight, we foresee investors to remain cautious in the near future. Any of the rebound move is likely to be short-lived as traders might be adopting a selling-into-strength strategy for now. The head of NATO warned of a long Russia-Ukraine war, which may prolong inflation and further derail global economic recovery. On the commodities market, the Brent oil price traded below USD115, while the CPO price hovered below RM5,500.

Sector focus:. Investors may stay defensive to invest within the REITs and consumer stocks as volatility continue to strike the market. Meanwhile, we expect traders to pick up based down stocks within the technology sector given the overnight rebound on Nasdaq.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI reached a new 52-week low on Friday on the back of heightened selling pressure. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram has extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered below the oversold 30 level. Support is located along 1,430-1,450, while the resistance is set at 1,500-1,530.
