Volatility still a feature

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-0.8%) recorded its fourth straight session of decline with two-thirds of the key index components closed in red yesterday. The lower liners were also downbeat, while the plantation sector (+0.2%) was the sole outperformer on the broader market.

Global markets:. Wall Street nudged higher in the final trading hour the Dow (+0.6%) rebounded ahead of the two-day FOMC meeting that is widely to raise interest rates by another 75 basis points. The European stock markets ended mixed, while Asia stock markets closed mostly in red.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI tumbled along with the regional peers as global sentiment was dampened by fears over global recession under the interest rate upcycle environment. Also, we believe the local bourse will remain volatile at least until the US Fed’s September meeting amidst heightened expectations for hawkish monetary policy decisions. Commodities wise, the crude oil price hovered around USD92 per barrel mark, while the CPO price retraced from RM3,700. Meanwhile, fears over global recession may continue to weigh on commodities prices.

Sector focus:. Nevertheless, with the slight rebound on Wall Street, we expect bargain hunting activities to emerge within the technology stocks at least for today’s session. Meanwhile, we like selected uptrend stocks under the energy sector as Brent oil price is still hovering around USD92. Besides, investors may focus on the banking sector under the interest rate upcycle environment.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI breached below its immediate support at 1,465 as the key index declined for the fourth straight session. Technical indicators remained negative as the MACD Histogram extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered below 50. Next support is located at 1,430, followed by its 52-week low around 1,410, while resistance is set along 1,485-1,500.
