Ripe for near term bounce

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.3%) extended its lead, backed by gains in selected banking, telco and gloves heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners, however, ended mixed, while the healthcare sector (+3.4%) outperformed the mostly negative sectorial peers.

Global markets:. The Dow (+1.9%) rebounded strongly driven by better-than-expected corporate earnings from Bank of America and Bank of New York Mellon. The European stock markets advanced after UK announced that almost all planned tax cuts would be scrapped, but Asia stock markets closed mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI is attempting to find stability over the near term, ahead of the official GE15 date being announced. Meanwhile, China unexpectedly delayed the release of 3Q22 GDP that is scheduled today, may imply that the data might not meet market expectations of +3.4% YoY. Back home, we reckon that the rebound on Wall Street may see buying interest spilling over on beaten down or oversold stocks over the near term. Still, the weakening trading liquidity and the persistent selling from foreign funds (net sell RM870.1m month-to-date) will keep bigger strides of gains at bay. Commodities wise, the crude oil price steadied above USD90, while the CPO price has inched above RM3,900.

Sector focus:. The beaten down healthcare sector appears to look attractive and may extend their revival trend, backed by the prospects of improved outlook. The technology sector may stage a rebound to mirror the gains on Nasdaq overnight, while the stability in crude oil prices may lend some support to the energy sector.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI recovered all its intraday losses to form a hammer candle as the key index threaded below the daily EMA9. Technical indicators stayed negative as the MACD Line is still below Signal Line, while the RSI remained below 50. Resistance is set along 1,400-1,430, while the support is envisaged along 1,355-1,365.
