*Ding Ding* 

Are you guys aware that the Gold price has yet again revisited the $1,700 area? It is the highest level since European debt crisis in 2013. In usual cases, the gold price rises whenever a market plunge occurs. 


The reason gold tends to be resilient during a stock market crash is that the two are negatively correlated. In simple words, when one goes up, the other tends to go down. Gold is considered to be a safe haven and serves as a form of insurance against adverse economic events. On Thursday, Gold surged more than 1% as the number of Americans filing unemployment claimed to have shot to a record high. 


So when the gold surged up on Thursday night, is there anything to be looked out for on Friday morning? 

  1. The GOLD ETF. Generally, Gold ETF tracks the movement in the gold price. When the gold price moved higher, the Gold ETF will have to track the movement and go higher. Gold ETF has been moving higher since January this year, tracking the rally in Gold price.

Swift recovery

Expectedly, the FBM KLCI performed a swift recovery as the key index recouped most of its previous session losses to re-claim the 1,600 psychological level. We reckon some stability will ensue with further upsides are in the cards as investors continue to focus on the economic recovery progress. Meanwhile, we believe that the lower liners will continue to enjoy their upward momentum as liquidity remains well on the equities market with investors capitalising on the positive market sentiment.

Tempered by MSCI portfolio re-balancing

The FBM KLCI started off the week on a dour note alongside with the weakness across regional peers on the increasing geopolitical tension between US and China. Still, the FBM KLCI recorded 95.82 pts on gain (+6.5% MoM) during November 2020. Although we see renewed volatility unfolding, we reckon that bargain hunting activities may take precedence after the sharp fall yesterday. On the other hand, we think that the lower liners are poised for further upsides, driven by the improved trading liquidity which may extend the rotational play.
