Prelude to a relief rally

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+1.2%) recovered all its previous session’s losses as bargain hunting activities took precedence with more than two-thirds of the key index components advanced yesterday. The lower liners also rebounded, while the REITs sector (-0.01%) was the sole underperformer on the broader market.

Global markets:. Wall Street resumed trading on a buoyant manner as the Dow (+2.2%) rallied after investors turned more optimistic after the market consensus is pointing towards slowdown in inflation in the coming quarters. Both the European and Asia stock markets closed mostly upbeat.

The Day Ahead

Overall, the sentiment has improved across the regional markets, which has helped the FBM KLCI to rebound from its 52-week low. Moreover, following the strong rebound on Wall Street overnight of over 2.0%, the local bourse may see further recovery supported by bargain hunting activities. We believe most of the sectors that have been bashed down earlier should gain traction at least for the near term. Nevertheless, investors are still weighing on the risk of recession arising from global inflation, hence traders may adopt a sell into strength strategy.

Sector focus:. The announcement of ceiling price removal for chicken and eggs effective from July 2022 should offer some reprieve to the poultry sector. Besides, investors may scoop up technology shares as buying interest may emerge following the overnight rally on Wall Street.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI rebounded off its 52-week low as the key index closed above its previous support at 1,450. Technical indicators remained negative but showed improvement as the MACD Histogram is recovering towards zero, while the RSI is seeing a cross above the oversold region. Support is pegged along 1,430-1,450, while the resistance is located at 1,480-1,500.
