Continued foreign buying may lift market

Market Review

Malaysia:. Despite the negative regional markets movements which took cue from Wall Street, the FBM KLCI (+0.4%) pared earlier losses and extended daily gains Meanwhile, the lower liners edged lower, while the healthcare sector (+2.6%) outperformed the broader market as follow-through buying interest emerged.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets bounced higher on Friday as investors anticipate the rate hikes could take a breather moving forward after November inflation data showed signs of moderation in prices. The European and Asia stockmarkets ended mixed.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI extended gains on Friday amid improving sentiment, with foreign funds extending its buying activities (5-day net foreign buying stood at RM51.2m). Also, the improvement on Wall Street overnight may spill over to the local front, but upside might be capped amid worries over the impact of fresh Covid-19 outbreaks in China. Commodities wise, the Brent crude oil price surged above USD83 per barrel mark, fuelled by tight US supplies, while the CPO price hovered above RM3,800. We believe the crude oil price could remain positive above the support of USD80 over the near term given the production cut from OPEC+ and Russia.

Sector focus:. Trading interest in oil & gas sector could stay positive over near term amid the surge in the crude oil price. Meanwhile, the healthcare sector may continue to gain traction amid rising Covid-19 cases in China. Besides, we expect short term positive mood on the technology sector with the rebound in Nasdaq.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI climbed higher from the 1,460 support and closed above its daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators, however, were mixed as the MACD Histogram extended a negative bar, while the RSI is hovering above 50. The resistance is pegged along 1,500-1,510, while the support is set at 1,450-1,460.
