Heads turning towards Malaysia 2Q22 GDP

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.9%) staged a sharp recovery on gains in more than two-thirds of the key index components as investors breathe a sigh of relief from the cool down of inflation rate in the US. The lower liners advanced, while the healthcare sector (-0.7%) was the sole underperformer on the broader market

Global markets:. Wall Street turned wobbly as the Dow (+0.1%) managed to hold onto its intraday gains, but the S&P 500 (-0.1%) and Nasdaq (-0.6%) fell after the Producer Price Index for July 2022 unexpectedly fell -0.5% MoM. The European stock markets ended mixed, while the Asia stock markets closed mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI climbed above the psychological 1,500 level amid positive regional market sentiment as investors cheered that the inflation is cooling off in the US for June. Whilst the market has stabilised along 1,500, we believe the profit taking activities may pick up with the mixed trading tone on Wall Street overnight, following a drop in PPI data. Hence, broader market may take a breather for the short term; especially the technology sector. Commodities wise, the Brent oil is trading higher towards the USD100 mark, while the CPO price headed above RM4,290.

Sector focus:. The energy sector may see some positive move along with the higher Brent crude oil prices. Meanwhile, the technology sector might see mild profit taking following yesterday’s strong surge. Ahead of the earnings season, traders may position within the consumer, banking, furniture and plantation sectors.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI surged above the key 1,500 level as the key index rallied above its daily EMA9. Technical indicators were mixed as the MACD Histogram formed a negative bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Next resistance is pegged along 1,530-1,560, while the support is located at 1,460-1,480.
