Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (+0.1%) marched higher for the third straight session as the key index recovered all its intraday losses, largely lifted by the eleventh hour buying support in selected index heavyweights yesterday. The lower liners closed mixed, while the REIT sector (-0.1%) was the sole underperformer on the broader market.

Global markets: US stockmarkets extended their gains overnight as the Dow (+1.1%) recorded its fourth straight winning streak, while the S&P 500 (+1.1%) and Nasdaq (+1.2%) finished at record high levels on the stronger-than-expected batch of corporate earnings, coupled with the improving labour data. European stockmarkets were mostly upbeat, but Asia stockmarkets closed mostly lower.

The Day Ahead

Mirroring the gains on Wall Street, the FBM KLCI edged mildly higher after Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s update on the scheduled rollout of Covid-19 vaccination programme by the end of February 2021. The announcement coupled with the positive performance on Wall Street overnight may lift the overall market sentiment on the local front. Meanwhile, the lower liners will continue to enjoy their upward momentum as liquidity remains well on the equities market.

Sector focus: Given the economic activities may restart in the near term, we expect trading interest may develop within the recovery sector such as construction, building materials, property and gaming. Meanwhile, the technology, furniture as well as vaccine related counters should remain in the upbeat tone.

The FBM KLCI finished higher, but still hovering below the EMA20 level. However, technical indicators could be showing positive signs as the MACD Histogram extended another green bar, while the RSI has slipped into oversold territory. Resistance will be set around 1,600-1,610 and the support is pegged around 1,560, followed by 1,550.
