Downward pressure uneased

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.1%) started off the week on a dour note as selling pressure remains largely in the picture. The lower liners also extended their slide, while all the 13 major sectors on the broader market ended in red with the energy sector (-3.9%) taking the worst hit after crude oil prices tumbled last Friday.

Global markets:. Wall Street was closed in conjunction with the Juneteenth public holiday, whilst futures markets edged higher. The European stock advanced after being boosted by bargain hunting activities in beaten down banks, energy and travel & leisure sectors, but Asia stock markets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended losses amid mixed performance on regional bourses amid global recession worries. However, we believe stocks on the local bourse are oversold and could be due for bargain hunting opportunities, but overall market sentiment should remain challenging in the near term on the back of prospect of few more rounds of rate hikes; thus, the rebound might be short-lived. The crude oil price has declined after hitting the range around USD121 and hovering around USD115 due to recession concerns, while the CPO traded around RM5,000 as market could be expecting a normalising supply following Indonesia’s strategy to speed up shipments and lifting the ban on exports last month.

Sector focus:. We believe the technology sector is set to rebound on as Wall Street futures are turning green at this juncture. Meanwhile, we opine that REITs and solid consumer stocks may be seen as defensive in nature and garner trading interest at least for the near term.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI breached below the immediate support at 1,450 after the whole stretch of selling pressure. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram extended a negative bar, while the RSI continues to thread below 30. Next support level is at 1,430, while the resistance is pegged along 1,476-1,500.
