Sell on Strength Gamuda & Public Bank
Overbought momentum on RSI and slow stochastics should check gains from the recent breakout rally on Gamuda, with resistance at RM4.12(123.6%FP) and RM4.31 (138.2%FP) stalling immediate upside potential. Support on a profit-taking correction is seen at RM3.81 (100%FR).
