Solidifying above 1,400

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.8%) marched higher for the third straight session, underpinned by gains in plantation and oil & gas heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners also tipped higher, while the broader market ended mostly positive, led by the plantation sector (+2.4%) following the rebound in CPO prices.

Global markets:. Wall Street ended mildly negative with despite the Dow (-0.1%) recovering most of its intraday losses as the US treasury yields and Dollar regained their lost ground after a two-session pullback. The European markets also retreated, but the Asia markets ended mostly upbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI climbed for the third consecutive session, taking positive cue from the global markets as industrial products & services and plantation heavyweights led gains. Given Wall Street ended flat without significant selling pressure which may benefit stocks on the local front. Commodity wise, crude oil price ticked above USD93 after OPEC+ announced a production cut, while the CPO price sustained above RM3,750 in the anticipation of an easing of lockdown measure in China, which may boost demand going forward.

Sector focus:. We believe the investors may favour energy stocks following the uptick in crude oil price after OPEC+ announced the production cut policy. Besides, budget-related counters including solar related, telecommunications, and selected consumer stocks may gain traction. Also, we like the technology sector as Wall Street ended mildly negative.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI breached above its immediate resistance of 1,410. Technical indicators were mixed as the MACD Histogram crossed above zero, while the RSI hovered above 30, approaching 50. Next resistance is pegged along 1,430-1,450, while the support is located at 52-week low at 1,400, followed by 1,380.
