Market conditions may turn calmer

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (-1.5%) erased all its previous session gains alongside with the mostly weaker regional peers yesterday. The lower liners retreated on quick profit taking activities, while all the 13 major sectors on the broader market fell with the plantation sector (-2.2%) was the biggest underperforming sector.

Global markets:. Wall Street rebounded overnight as the Dow (+1.0%) rose after the US Feds delivered a 75 basis points of interest rate hike and re-assured that similar large rate hikes may be off the table for now in the upcoming FOMC meeting. The European stock markets rebounded, but Asia stock markets closed mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

Following the conclusion of the two-day US FOMC meeting that saw the pace of the interest rate hike came in line with market expectations, we think that markets conditions should turn calmer. Mild bargain hunting activities may emerge at least for the near term after majority of the stocks have fallen into the oversold territory. Still, we reckon that the lack of fresh market catalysts and anxieties over the lingering inflationary pressure could result in market environment to remain wary and cautious overtime, which may keep the upside limited. Meanwhile, the Brent oil price has declined below USD120, while the CPO is trading around RM5,600.

Sector focus:. Timber-related stocks may see improve trading activities after Malaysia and Vietnam has signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) to further develop the timber trades between both countries. Meanwhile, the technology sector may rebound, taking cue from the positive developments on Nasdaq overnight.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI took another dive as the key index reversed all its previous session sharp gains. Technical indicators stayed negative as the MACD Histogram extended a negative bar, while the RSI slipped back into the oversold territory. Support is pegged along 1,430-1,450, while the resistance is set at 1,500-1,530
