Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) recovered some of its previous session losses on signs of easing trade tension between US and China yesterday. The lower liners, however, extended their losses, while the broader market ended mostly higher, led by the REITs sector (+0.9%).

Global markets:. US stockmarkets ended mixed as the Dow (-0.4%) remained in the red despite coming off from its intraday low, while both the S&P 500 (+0.2%) and Nasdaq (+1.8%) advanced on gains in technology shares. The European stock markets were downbeat, while Asia stock markets closed mixed. The Day Ahead The FBM KLCI staged a late-day rebound on the back of mild bargain hunting activities. Nevertheless, we expect investors to stay sidelines amid the heightened inflationary pressure and lack of fresh catalysts environment. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the monetary policy meeting and BNM’s interest rate decision today. Brent crude oil plummeted to trade near USD100-105 a barrel as concerns over recession weighed on price. The CPO price tumbled below RM4,100 as Indonesian supplies are set to flood the market amid rising export permits.

Sector focus:. With the Nasdaq rebounded the strongest overnight, we believe buying support to spillover to the tech sector on our local front. Also, traders may favour the banking stocks ahead of the MPC meeting. Besides, we reckon traders are likely to avoid the energy and plantation sectors amid the declining commodity prices. Nevertheless, construction related stocks might trade positively on the back of the news on EKOVEST taking over EPC job in RTS Link project.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI booked marginal gains after a final-hour rebound. Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered below 50. Resistance is located along 1,460-1,480, while the support is set at 1,400-1,420.
