Technical Viewpoint: The FBM KLCI’s key swings are 936.63 (Wave 4A high) and 836.51 (Wave 4B low). Its extended “Flat” uptrend Wave 4C move stalled at 1,349.92 (4 May 2010, high). An “A-B-C”-correction then unfolded and ended at 1,243.86 (27 May 2010). Some obvious buying interest would be at the support levels of 1,315 and 1,335, while liquidation at the resistance areas of 1,340 and 1,350 may cap any rebound.
Trading opportunities have emerged with the Bullish Engulfing candlestick low at 1,243.86 on 27 May 2010. Trade with a 1-month timeframe, with stop-loss below 1,313. The FBM KLCI’s signals are positive and the market looks poised to re-test its previous high of 1,349.92. Should that happen, its first initial target above 1,349 is 1,385; to be followed by 1,407. We prefer buying liquid and laggard stocks on the exchange. Trade with a relevant and tight stop-loss, in case the global markets take a tumble (like the massive May 2010 fall).
KLCI Futures reading: The June contract moved into a larger 6.21-point premium to the FBM KLCI. Traderswill trade the KLCIF today with a “Buy on Dips” bias. The obvious support areas are at 1,320.0 and 1,341.0,and investors may take profit at the 1,342.0 and 1,353.0 resistance areas.
