Market Review

Malaysia: The FBM KLCI (-0.4%) formed a bearish candle and erased all its previous session gains, snapping a three-day winning streak on profit taking activities with more than two-third of the key index components finished in the red. Meanwhile, both the lower liners and the broader market closed on a mixed tone.

Global markets: US stockmarkets remain upbeat with the Dow (+0.3%) ascending higher for the fifth straight session, driven by the optimism over the prospect of economic recovery following the acceleration of Covid-19 vaccine rollout, whilst the number of new cases continued to dwindle. European stockmarkets closed mixed, while Asia stockmarkets ended mostly higher.

The Day Ahead

The FBM KLCI underperformed its regional peers last Friday, as gloves and plantation heavyweights lost their ground following their recent rallies. The selling pressure among local and foreign institutions continued to weigh on the local bourse despite buying interest among local retail investors. With the US stockmarkets inching higher last Friday, we expect the local bourse may see some rebound, but traders should be trading cautiously ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday. The lower liners may see some rebound ahead of the vaccine rollout.

Sector focus: We expect buying support to surface within the plantation counters today on the back of higher crude palm oil price. Besides, technology, furniture and consumers related stocks should continue their uptrend move throughout the reporting season period.

The FBM KLCI snapped its three-day gains, but managed to close marginally above the EMA120 level. We think the 1,600 is still crucial for the FBM KLCI, should it hovers below 1,600, the key index should continue to trade on a rangebound manner. Support is pegged around 1,560, followed by 1,550. On the technical indicators, the MACD Histogram has turned red, while the RSI remained below 50.
