Recovery tone setting up

Market Review

Malaysia:. The FBM KLCI (+0.2%) extended its lead, boosted by gains in more than half of the key index components yesterday. The lower liners ended mixed, while the broader market closed mostly upbeat, with the exception of energy (-0.4%) and plantation (-0.1%) sectors as commodity prices continues to retreat.

Global markets:. Wall Street advanced as the Dow (+0.6%) edged higher after a volatile spell as markets brushed off the US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell comments over their hawkish stance on interest rate directions. Both the European and Asia stock markets closed mostly upbeat.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI closed on a positive note, tracking the performance on Wall Street. We believe the key index should find firmer footing moving forward following an extension of rebound on Wall Street as softening crude oil price could ease the inflationary concerns on the global front. Nevertheless, the mounting economic risk in China may pose some threat to the global markets. Meanwhile, the Brent crude oil price saw mild increase but remained below USD90 per barrel mark, while the crude palm oil price trended lower, hovering below RM3,600.

Sector focus:. We believe the energy and plantation sectors should remain under pressure over the near term, while investors are likely to turn their focus on the consumer and banking sectors. Meanwhile, the technology stocks may gain traction given the positive performance of Nasdaq overnight.

FBMKLCI Technical Outlook

The FBM KLCI extended its gains and closed above its daily EMA9 level. Technical indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram extended a negative bar, while the RSI hovered above 50. Resistance is located at 1,510-1,530, while the support is pegged along 1,465-1,485.
