Swift rebound

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+1.2%) staged a swift recovery, lifted by gains in more than two-thirds of the key index components yesterday. The lower liners also turned upbeat, while all the 13 major sectors on the broader market marched higher, led by the technology sector (+3.0%).

Global markets:. Wall Street was traded in a muted manner as the Dow (-0.3%) pared some of its previous session gains, on a mixed bag of corporate earnings, while the unemployment rate data will be monitored today. The European stock markets extended their gains, while the Asia stock markets remain mostly upbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI bounced higher in tandem with most of the regional peers, underpinned by buying momentum in selected utilities, telecommunication and banking heavyweights. We believe sentiment is likely to stay positive bias for the session as investors have shrugged off the US-China geopolitical risks to focus on the upcoming earnings season. Commodities wise, the crude oil price declined further to USD94 per barrel mark, lowest since the start of the Ukraine and Russia tension, while the CPO price saw mild improvement and remained above RM3,800.

Sector focus:. The technology sector may extend its uptrend move, tracking the gains in Nasdaq. Meanwhile, the banking sector may see buying interest ahead of the earnings season. On the contrary, the energy sector should face further selling pressure amid declining crude oil price.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI surged above the key 1,500 level to close at session high; EMA9 and EMA20 have been turning upwards. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram has extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Investors should watch the next resistance along 1,530-1,550 and support is set at 1,460-1,480.
