Review & Outlook

While blue chips stayed in profit-taking consolidation on Monday, active rotational plays on lower liner transport, utility, construction and property stocks highlight trading. The FBM KLCI slipped 3.49 points to close at 1,614.37, off an opening high of 1,619.24 and low of 1,613.01, as gainers led losers 628 to 531 on total turnover of 5.96bn shares worth RM3.3bn.

Blue chips should trade sideways as investors await the keenly watched US FOMC meeting mid-week, while rotational plays on lower liner construction and property stocks highlight. Immediate index resistance will be from the recent high of 1,632, with 1,640, 1,660 and then 1,680 as tougher upside hurdles. Immediate supports are at 1,600, the rising 30-day moving average, with 1,586 and 1,556, the respective 50-day and 100-day moving averages, acting as stronger supports.

Ekovest need to sustain above the 200-day ma (49sen) to enhance upside momentum towards the 61.8%FR (52sen) and 76.4%FR (56sen) ahead, while the 23.6%FR (41sen) provides key retracement support to cushion downside. IWCity will need convincing breakout above the 61.8%FR (82sen) to reenergize upside momentum and aim for the 76.4%FR (90sen) and 8/1/24 peak (RM1.03), with downside risk cushioned by the 200-day ma (72sen) and 38.2%FR (69sen).
