Resumption of recovery trend

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.5%) shrugged off previous session weakness as the buying interest returned and saw gains in selected banking, telco and Petronas heavyweights. The lower liners also advanced, while the broader market closed mostly upbeat with the technology sector (+2.5%) taking lead.

Global markets:. Wall Street cheered as the Dow (+1.4%) climbed after the US Federal Reserve delivered another 75 basis points of rate hike and guided that the pace of future rate hikes may be less aggressive to tame inflation. The European stock markets also advanced, but Asia stock markets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI reversed earlier losses to end in the positive territory prior to the US Fed’s interest rate decision as concerns over rate hikes have been priced in. We believe the recent rebound should continue as the comments by the US Fed Chairman Jerome Powell have eased investors’ concerns over the interest rate hike outlook going forward. The positive momentum on Wall Street is likely to spill over to the regional and local bourses. Commodities wise, the crude oil rose above USD106 per barrel, while the CPO was traded above RM3,850.

Sector focus:. The local bourse may trade in positive tone following the solid gains on Wall Street. We believe the technology sector should outperform as Nasdaq booked its biggest daily percentage gain since April 2020 overnight. Meanwhile, the energy sector may gain traction as the crude oil price has shown improvement.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded as the key index pared mild losses in the morning session and closed as a hammer. Technical indicators remained in a recovery mode as the MACD Histogram has extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Resistance is located along 1,480-1,500, while the support is set at 1,400-1,410.
