Market Pulse - 2Aug23 - Profit taking tone sets in

The FBM KLCI took a breather as selling pressure emerged in selected index heavyweights with foreign fund turned net selling for the first time in 6 trading days.

Nevertheless, we opined that the pullback is healthy to allow recent gains to be digested. The lower liners are also experiencing a consolidation with traders opting for the wait-and-see approach ahead of the Malaysia state election.
