Tepid gains

Market Review

Malaysia: Tracking the gains on Wall Street last Friday, coupled with the mostly positive sentiment across regional peers, the FBM KLCI (+0.2%) managed to eke out mild gains after lingering mostly in the positive territory yesterday. The lower liners also extended their gains, while the broader market finished mostly higher, anchored by the technology sector (+2.8%).

Global markets: US stockmarkets started off the week on a jubilant note as the Dow (+1.5%) advanced for the third straight session, boosted by expectations over further stimulus measures from the government ahead of the first presidential debate. Earlier, European stockmarkets marched higher, while Asia stockmarkets also finished mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

It was another choppy trading session on the FBM KLCI as quick profit taking activities are now limiting further upsides. Hence, the consolidation is expected to remain in shape for an extended period. Elsewhere, the dwindling trading interests ahead of the end of blanket loan moratorium may also keep gains across the lower liners in check. Investors are opting to remain on the side lines, waiting for further leads before pouncing aggressively into the market again.

Sector focus: We continue to favour the technology sector as we note that there were renewed buying interests in recent days due to the positive prospects. In the meantime, healthcare sector are also demonstrating baby steps of recovery as investors bargain hunt beaten down stocks.

The FBM KLCI ended mildly positive after coming off from its intraday high to remain above the daily EMA9 level. The lack of further strong buying interests may bring the consolidation longer. For now, gains will be kept limited towards the immediate resistances at 1,515, followed by 1,555. The support, meanwhile are remained at 1,480, followed by 1,450. Indicators remained mixed as the MACD Histogram has extended another green bar, but the RSI remains below 50.
