Extension of rebound formation

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.7%) resumed its recovery trend, largely driven by gains in plantation, telco and gloves heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners marched higher, while the healthcare sector (+3.8%) took the lead amongst the mostly positive sectorial peers.

Global markets:. Wall Street endured a choppy trading session as the Dow (+0.01%) edged marginally higher, but the S&P 500 (-0.7%) and Nasdaq (-2.0%) were dragged by weaker earnings guidance from Meta Platforms and Snap. The European stock markets extended their lead, while the Asia stock markets ended mostly positive.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI rallied higher in tandem with most of the regional markets as telecommunications, plantation, and healthcare heavyweights in focus. As the Wall Street hit the resistance and took a breather after the significant rebound over the past two weeks after investors digested weaker earnings from big technology giants, we expect the negative sentiment may spill over to the regional and local bourses. Commodities wise, the Brent oil price surged above USD95 boosted by the US record exports as well as weaker USD, while the CPO price hovered above RM4,190.

Sector focus:. The technology stocks may see a mild pullback following the selldown on Wall Street. Meanwhile, given the uncertain market environment, we expect buying momentum to remain positive in the healthcare sector especially the glove counters. Besides, we believe the O&G to gain traction in the near term with the firmer Brent oil price.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded and surged above its daily EMA60 level. Technical indicators remained positive as the MACD Histogram extended a positive bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Resistance is envisaged along 1,465-1,485, while the support is set at 1,420-1,430.
