Quick profit taking sapped gains

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.1%) continues to edge lower after reversing all its intraday gains, dragged by MISC (-4.8%) following its disappointing quarterly results. The lower liners closed mildly higher, but the broader market ended mostly in red with the transportation & logistics sector (-1.0%) underperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street nudged marginally higher as the Dow (+0.1%) rose on a mixed bag of economic data whereby better jobless claims and manufacturing data offset the softer existing home sales data. The European stock markets also turned upbeat, but the Asia stock markets ended mostly negative.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended losses amid weaker sentiment across the regional markets as investors continued to digest recent gains. Given the US markets are still finding its direction, we believe the local bourse may take a breather amid softer inflow of foreign funds and the FBM KLCI might be resisted along its SMA200 zone. Investors will be focusing on the ongoing reporting season to position themselves in the stock markets. Commodities wise, the crude oil price surged above USD96 per barrel mark, while the CPO traded above RM4,000.

Sector focus:. We opine that the positive momentum in the energy sector should sustain as the crude oil price is showing an uptick move and selected O&G stocks like DAYANG and GASMSIA have release decent results. Besides, sectors such as banking, consumer, and REIT should stay attractive throughout the earnings season.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI registered marginal losses but remained well supported above its EMA120 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Resistance is set along 1,530-1,560, while the support is pegged at 1,500, followed by 1,480.
