FBM KLCI Preview, Technical Outlook 11 July 2013

Stocks ended off earlier highs on Wednesday, after initial optimism from overnight Wall Street strength was overshadowed by weaker export numbers from China which confirmed the world's second largest economy is slowing more rapidly. The KLCI still closed up 2.22 points at 1,768.71, off an early high of 1,771.24 and low of 1,766.67, as losers beat gainers 441 to 308 on slower trade totaling 1.22bn shares worth RM1.7bn.

Blue chips should continue to be range bound with upside capped amid cautious trade in the near-term, given the weaker-than-expected economic data from China dampening the growth outlook in the region.

Key immediate support for the KLCI stays at the 50-day moving average, now at 1,765, while a breakdown will grease correction towards 1,738, the 38.2%FR of the 1,597 low to 1,826 peak, , with 1,723 and 1,718, the highest point prior to 13GE, acting as stronger support buffers. On the upside, immediate resistance stays at 1,791, the 138.2%FP, followed by the 1,800 psychological level.
