Volatility regain control

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.0%) trended lower with more than two-thirds of the key index components finished lower prior to the extended weekend break. The lower liners, however, ended mixed, while the transportation & logistics sector (+0.7%) was the sole outperformer among the sectorial peers.

Global markets:. Wall Street remained downbeat as the Dow (-0.3%) fell for the fourth straight day, dragged by the on-going concern over the monetary tightening by the US Federal Reserve and the escalating geopolitical risks in the Russia Ukraine war. Both the European and Asia markets also were also painted in red.

The Day Ahead

Another wave of selling pressure hit the FBM KLCI on Friday as investors mulled over the Budget 2023 and bearish sentiment on the regional markets. We believe all eyes will turn to the upcoming GE15 following the dissolution of parliament announced yesterday. The broad market may trade lower given the uncertainties ahead of the GE15, while foreign investors may extend its selling activities since last week. Commodities wise, the crude oil price sustained above USD94 per barrel mark, while the CPO price continued to hover above RM3,750.

Sector focus:. The broader market may attract selling pressure with the dissolution of parliament, but the investors will focus on GE15 theme, and may shift their attention to sectors such as construction, utilities, as well as selected government related stocks. Besides, the bullish crude oil price may add shine to the energy stocks. On the other hand, the technology sector could see further selldown as Nasdaq slid to close at 2-year low.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI tumbled and closed below its daily EMA9 level after spending the entire session in the negative territory. Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered below 50. The resistance is pegged along 1,430-1,450, while the support is pegged at 1,385-1,400.
