Recovery in store

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) halted an 8-day losing streak as bargain hunting activities took place in the second half of the trading session yesterday. The lower liners, however, stayed downbeat, while the broader market ended mostly negative with the healthcare sector (-1.4%) underperformed.

Global markets:. Wall Street staged a sharp rebound as the Dow (+2.7%) rallied as indicators on the aggressive rate hikes subsides after the ISM Manufacturing PMI fell to 50.9 in September of 2022; the weakest since May 2020. The European stock markets extended their gains, but the Asia stock markets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

Following a heavy selldown in the past week due to continuous outflow of foreign funds, the FBM KLCI bounced higher. Given the strong rebound on Wall Street overnight, we believe the regional markets and local bourse should trade on a higher note. Nevertheless, the rebound may sit on a shaky ground due to lingering global recession fears and lack of fresh positive catalysts; investors may take the opportunity to sell into strength. Commodities wise, the crude oil price signalled a comeback to trade above USD88 per barrel, while the CPO price hovered around RM3,480.

Sector focus:. We believe investors will focus on the tabling of Budget 2023 which is scheduled on 7th October 2022 moving forward. Sectors such as solar related, construction, and telecommunication may see some buying interest. Meanwhile, the rising crude oil may lift the energy counters over the near term. Also, with the rebound in Nasdaq, the technology stocks should be on the radar.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded from its 8-day losing streak. Technical indicators, however, might be suggesting that the FBM KLCI is due for a rebound as the MACD Histogram is curving upwards (in the negative region), while the RSI is oversold. The resistance is envisaged along 1,410-1,430, while support is set at 1,365-1,370.
