Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.78%) extended its rebound move for the session led by banking and telco heavyweights with the ongoing window dressing activities. Meanwhile, FBM Small Cap (-0.08%) ended flat, but the FBM ACE gained 1.11%. Out of the 13 sectors, both the construction and O&G sector ended in red.

Global markets:. The US stockmarkets performed a significant rebound led by the technology sector as interest rate hike concerns faded with the 10Y and 30Y US treasury yield on a decline. Meanwhile, the European stockmarkets were largely positive cheering the reopening activities in China.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI continues to trade positively, driven by the ongoing year-end window dressing activities in the banking and telco heavyweights. Also, with the positive rebound on Wall Street, it may spillover to the local front and trading activities to stay on an upbeat manner; the FBM KLCI should revisit the 1,500 level. Traders will be focusing on the China’s borders reopening catalyst and position themselves for the recovery theme trades. Commodities wise, the Brent crude oil price settled flat along USD83, while the crude palm oil price is hovering above the RM4,000.

Sector focus:. Following the significant rebound on Wall Street, traders may position themselves for the technology sector today.
