Technical Focus – 17th Sep 20

Crude palm oil prices (CPO) have now soared beyond RM2,900/MT level; the highest since January 2020 amid the improving demand prospects. The positive momentum is driven by the lingering trade spat between US and China which will see the latter shifting their purchases to CPO as opposed to soybean. On the local front, the export tax exemption since Jun-2020 till end-2020 will drive price to be competitive at international levels. We reckon the demand will be sustainable, premised to the recent strings of better-than-expected economic data from China with palm oil shipments from Malaysia during the period 1-15 September 2020 rose 12.4% MoM to 780,305 tonnes.

Return of volatility

The FBM KLCI has rebounded strongly amid bargain hunting activities as steel-related and technology stocks were traded higher following several strong sets of results under the respective sectors. Meanwhile, healthcare sector was the sole decliner in the broader market. We believe the market will be pricing in Covid-19 vaccination progress and market may trend on an upward bias tone, focusing on recovery theme stocks. On the commodity side, the crude palm oil price has climbed above RM3,700, while Brent oil price is firmly trading above USD65.
