Market Review

Malaysia: Tracking the gains on Wall Street overnight, the FBM KLCI (+1.1%) rebounded and hovered in the positive region for the entire trading session with only 2 decliners on the FBM KLCI yesterday. The lower liners also extended their gains, while the broader market closed mostly higher led by the rally in technology sector (+3.0%) on the back of the bullish sector outlook.

Global markets: US stockmarkets rallied overnight as the Dow jumped 1.6%, while both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq finished at another fresh record high levels on the positive developments over Covid-19 vaccine that could be available by end- 2020 or early-2021. European stockmarkets also marched higher, while Asia stockmarket ended mostly higher yesterday.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI appears to have found its footing as the key index staged a much anticipated solid recovery from near the oversold region. We expect the recovery to extend, taking cues from the positive strides over overseas markets as investors are also capitalising on the positive global economic data. At the same time, we continue to see the lower liners remain driven by the ample trading liquidity.

Sector focus: We see the technology continue to lead the winners list on the back of the positive outlook which could transpire in their fundamentals over the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, the healthcare sector (particularly pharmaceutical related stocks) may also advance in light of the positive developments over the potential Covid-19 vaccine.


The FBM KLCI rebounded from around the daily EMA120 level as the key index formed a bullish harami candle yesterday, suggesting a potential recovery pattern from the recent pullback. In view of further recovery to take place, the immediate resistance is now located at 1,540, followed by 1,560. Downside risk is pegged at 1,515, followed by 1,500. Indicators have turned mixed with the MACD Histogram turning green, but the RSI continues to tread below 50.
