Spurred by solid 3Q22 GDP

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+1.3%) closed sharply higher, taking cue from gains on Wall Street overnight, coupled with the stronger-than-expected 3Q22 GDP data that advanced 14.2% YoY. The lower liners also advanced, but the REIT sector (-0.2%) underperformed the positive sectorial peers.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets inched higher with the Dow rising 0.1% as investors continue to cheer on the slowdown in inflation data. The European stockmarkets ended mostly upbeat, while Asia stock markets finished on a positive note after China’s move to ease Covid restrictions.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI notched higher on Friday, fuelled by optimism over Malaysia’s 3Q2022 economy growth as well as the significant global markets recovery move. We reckon that the local bourse should remain resilient, taking cue from the buoyant Wall Street over the weekend. Still, investors may pay attention to the US economic data such as the US retail sales as well as jobs data as that may provide more insights into the aggressiveness of upcoming rate hikes. Commodities wise, the crude oil price jumped above USD95 as the market cheered the easing of Covid-19 restrictions in China, while the CPO price climbed above RM4,250.

Sector focus:. We believe the technology sector will be on further upward move in tandem with the gains in Nasdaq. Meanwhile, the energy sector could remain attractive for investors following a jump in crude oil price. Besides, the glove sector’s momentum is likely to persist over the near term as the glove ASP outlook is likely to stabilise in the next 6-9 months.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI jumped, breaching above its immediate resistance at 1,465 as well as its daily EMA120 level. Technical indicators were positive as the MACD Histogram turned positive, while the RSI hovered above 50. Next resistance is pegged along 1,480-1,500, support is set at 1,420-1,430.
