Marginally lower

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) managed to recover most of its intraday losses, but still closed marginally lower for the session. The lower liners, however, ended mixed, while the broader market closed mostly negative with the energy sector (- 0.5%) pullback from the previous session sharp rally.

Global markets:. US stock markets rallied as the Dow (+2.4%) surged on speculation that markets are near bottom, coupled with the reversal of US Dollar against a basket of currencies. The European stock markets rose in anticipation of European Central Bank rate hike, but Asia stock markets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI booked marginal losses as investors remained on the sidelines while waiting for fresh market leads. Nevertheless, sentiment on the local bourse should improve after mild profit taking activities yesterday, tracking the sharp rally on Wall Street overnight buoyed by strong corporate earnings. Commodity wise, the Brent crude oil price improved, trading above USD107 per barrel mark on the back of resumed worries over tight supply. Meanwhile, the CPO rebounded to trade above RM3,900.

Sector focus:. Following the strong rebound on Wall Street, we expect the technology sector to further rebound amid spillover buying interest on the local tech stocks. Meanwhile, we believe trading interest may emerge in the energy sector amid a strong rebound in crude oil price. Also, consumer, transportation and logistics sector may turn out to be the winner under the recovery theme.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI closed flat with a hammer pattern. Technical indicators were slightly positive with the MACD Histogram extended another positive bar, while the RSI is recovering above the oversold region towards 50. Resistance is pegged along 1,460-1,480, while the support is set at 1,400-1,420.
