Mirroring regional weakness

Tracking the performance in the regional markets, the FBM KLCI registered its 7th
straight session of decline as investors’ sentiment remained sour; foreign funds
turned net seller for the second session (net selling of RM120.8m). Given the
negative Wall Street overnight, we believe market may perform a knee jerk selling
at the opening bell and bargain hunting activities may emerge once the selling
pressure is overdone. In the meantime, government’s discussion on possibility of
allowing interstate tourism which may be seen as a mode for gradual economic
recovery might be one of the few catalysts to cushion the downside risk for the
near term. Meanwhile, both the CPO and crude oil prices extended their retreat.

Dour trend still on horizon

The FBM KLCI finished the week lower last Friday, as foreign funds turned into net
seller; the net selling stood at RM72.6m, snapping the 4 days of inflow by the
foreign funds. However, the local bourse may see bargain hunting activities
emerging on the back of declining daily Covid-19 confirmed cases, while waiting
for Malaysia’s inflation rate that will be released this Friday. Meanwhile, both the
CPO and crude oil price declined, while Baltic Exchange Dry Index rose to 4,275, its
record high since 2009.
