Technical Analysis : FBMKLCI 31/10/2011 综合指数 2011年 10月 31日

FBM KLCI 31/10/2011
On Monday, the FBM KLCI had its intraday low reaching 1475.71 points, but started to pick up some strength again in the afternoon session, and at the end of the trading day, gaining 10.07 points or 0.68%, to close at 1491.89 points. Despite breaking above 1487 resistance, the break out is yet to be confirmed, as the break out was not supported by strong volume. Support for the FBM KLCI remains at 1453 followed by the 14, 21, 31 EMA dynamic support.

 As indicated by B, total market volume fell 29.07%, but still above the 40-day volume moving average. This suggests that the market is still activity participated, but the retreat of volume has failed to confirm the breakout of the KLCI above its resistance.

As indicated by C, the Stochastic stays above 70%, in the short term bullish territory. Therefore, this suggests that the short term movement of the KLCI is still positive.

In conclusion, the short-term uptrend of the KLCI remains intact, and with the KLCI above the 14, 21, 31 EMA, the technical outlook for the FBM KLCI is positive.

富时大马综合指数(综指)一度回调下滑至1475.71点的全日最低,惟在午盘时因重量级蓝筹股项的带动之下回弹,并以1491.89点挂收,按日上扬10.07点或0.68%。如图中箭头A所示,虽然综指稍微突破1487点的费氏线,但此突破的讯号有待进一步的确认。这是因为马股周一的成交量明显的减退。无论如何,综指支持水平依然是1453点的费氏线及142131天综合加权移动平均线(Exponential Moving Average – EMA)的动态支持线。





FBMKLCI Weekly Technical Outlook 31 Oct 2011

The Week Ahead
The daily slow stochastics indicator for the KLCI reissued a buy signal at the overbought zone
early last week (Chart 1), confirming the buy signal from the oversold region on the weekly
indicator. The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator climbed higher to above the 60-
point mark, while the 14-week RSI listed a positive reading just above 50.

 Meantime, the daily Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) trend indicator’s signal
line extended higher above the zero line to reinforce a bullish trend signal, while the weekly
MACD signal line continued hooking up to suggest strengthening upward momentum (Chart
2). The 14-day Directional Movement Index (DMI) trend indicator will see the -DI line
crossing back below the +DI line to trigger a buy signal on further strength, but the ADX line
continued inching lower, confirming a trendless market.

 In Conclusion 
Given the further improvement on momentum and trend indicators for the KLCI, the local
stock market should show upside resilience this week, even as short-term momentum
becomes more overbought. As such, profit-taking dips are likely to be shallow as increasingly
investors should be more confident to return and bargain stocks, especially those in the
construction, property and oil & gas sectors which have suffered heavy losses in recent
weeks. Moreover, improvement on the euro-zone debt situation following the decisive action
taken by EU leaders to boost its rescue fund to 1 trillion euros as bondholders agreed to a
relatively mild 50% haircut on Greek debt, as well as much stronger-than-expected US and
Chinese economic data, should combine to boost sentiment further.

 On the index, immediate resistance comes from 1,488, the 61.8% Fibonacci Retracement (FR)
of the sell-off from the 1,597 record high of 11 July to the recent pivot low of 1,310 on 26 Sept
(Chart 3), matching last Friday’s high. A breakout going forward would see stronger
resistance from the 100-day and 200-day moving averages at 1,495 and 1,512 respectively,
being challenged, while the 76.4%FR at 1,529 would act as a more formidable upside barrier.
Immediate support on profit-taking dips will be at 1,454, the 50%FR, with better retracement
support at 1,420, the 38.2%FR, followed by 1,400 and then 1,378, the 23.6%FR.

Dow Closes Week With Profit Takings After Stellar Performance

DJIA Adds 5th Week To Winning Streak
Heads For Best Month Since 1987
Despite the Dow's lethargic performance on the day, the blue-chip index powered 422 points higher this week, marking its fifth straight weekly gain as it heads for the best monthly performance in 24 years.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 22.6 points, or 0.18%, to 12,231, the S&P 500 gained 0.49 point, or 0.04%, to 1,285 and the Nasdaq Composite fell 1.5 points, or 0.05%, to 2,737. Traders took a breather on Friday following a very strong showing in the prior session.  Volume on the New York Stock Exchange was much lighter than it was on Thursday when the Dow zoomed 340 points to the upside.

Despite falling share prices Friday, the markets are headed for their best October performance on record, as easing European tensions, and generally upbeat corporate earnings have boosted traders' confidence.  Indeed, this week's rally knocked most major market indices into the black for 2011.  The Dow, S&P, and Nasdaq are all trading at their highest level in three months. 

Other Markets
European blue chips fell 0.18%, the English FTSE 100 dipped 0.2% to 5,702 and the German DAX fell 0.2% to 6,346. 

In Asia, the Japanese Nikkei 225 jumped 1.4% to 9,050 and the Chinese Hang Seng soared 1.7% to 20,019. 

All eyes are still fixed on Europe, however, even after policymakers Thursday crafted a plan to tackle the region's debt crisis that has threatened some of the world's biggest economies.  Doubts still remain among analysts as to whether the euro zone's $610 billion rescue fund, even after substantial leveraging, will be enough to tackle future sovereign debt crises, particularly if they strike big economic players, like Italy.  

The currency bloc is hoping China may make an investment in the fund, taking advantage of its strong position in currency markets.  However, European and Chinese leaders downplayed that notion on Friday, according to several media reports from Asia and Europe.

WALL STREET : EU Deal Scare Bears; Bulls Gain 3%

DJIA Skyrockets 340 Points, Tops 12,000 on Euro-Zone Relief & GDP Rally
A bullish tide swept over Wall Street today, as investors cheered a long-awaited plan to address European debt. Most notably, European Union (EU) leaders agreed to recapitalize the region's banks, and to boost the scope of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF). Furthermore, under the terms of the deal, private investors of Greek debt will take a 50% write-down on their holdings -- which translated into a major boon for banks both at home and abroad. With the fiscal fate of the euro zone seemingly coming into focus, and thanks to a respectable uptick in third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP), the major market indexes now boast double-digit percentage gains for the month of October.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA – 12,208.55) blazed a steady path higher today, touching an intraday peak of 12,284 before paring its gains by the close. Still, the blue-chip barometer tacked on a healthy 339.5 points, or 2.9%, when all was said and done, ending north of its 200-day moving average for the first time since Aug. 1, and extending its month-to-date gain to 11.9%. In fact, not one of the Dow's 30 components finished lower, with Bank of America (BAC) and Alcoa (AA) paving the path into the black with gains of 9.5% apiece.

The S&P 500 Index (SPX – 1,284.59) rallied 42.6 points, or 3.4% -- but not before topping out at 1,292.66 in late-session trading. Like the Dow, the SPX conquered its 200-day moving average for the first time in close to three months, extending its October lead to 13.5%. Likewise, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP – 2,738.63) skyrocketed nearly 88 points, or 3.3%, after touching an intraday peak of 2,753.37. As such, the tech-rich COMP is on pace to end the month nearly 13.4% higher.

A Memorable Beginning Before The End

A Memorable Start
It was more like15 minutes, but I will never forget it. I took a position in FKLI that opened higher by 10 points. It toyed with 15 for most of the morning and the early afternoon, and then. In the next few minutes, the FKLI bought in lots bigger than an elephant in a small room. My Level II quotes (profits target) were moving so fast that I at first thought something was wrong. The FKLI ran up past 30 points, and then settled back into the 25 range where it closed.

Wow! I made 15 points from my virgin trade and that was RM100 per points back then. The memories remain as vivid as unforgettable. But what follows were tragedies I don't want to remember .....

A Memorable Month
In my early days, I lost lots of money. I had no plan, no strategy, and no psychological foundation for trading. I saw trading as another way to take a risk, which is what I do. I am a risk taker, always have been. Anyway, I quickly tired of losing, so I did two smart things. I began a search for knowledge (Fundamentals), and I looked for a software package (Technicals) that would help me become successful. I found both, eventually. After reading a library of books that turned my head around, as well as learning to utilize my new trading software appropriately, I began to have small successes. I built on those and began trading some twenty trades per month. And then it all clicked, at least for one month. I made money on 17 of 20 trades, but that was not the best of it. The best of that month was not the "wins,"  It was the boost in confidence such success brings. As a personal record, I have not repeated that month, but I have come close on a few occasions.

A Memorable Mating
No, this is not about a loose night in my youth. This about gambling, which is what we all do when trading markets. I am a gambler by nature, as I have said, and my trading successes started coming just about the time I figured out that trading is extremely similar to serious gambling. Both games put money at risk, true, but the secret to success for both lies in understanding and acting on three concepts.

The first concept is to accept that you cannot win 100% of the time. Understand you will lose. In fact, you might only win 50% of the time. Your win/loss percentage, however, is not the measure of success. The bottom line is the true measure of success. How much have you made, and how much have you lost?

The second concept is two sides of the same coin, know when to hold them and know when to fold them for poker. Know when to get in and know when to get out in trading. Take profit cut losses. Trading, like playing serious poker, is a business and notions such as hope play no role in success, which leads me to my third concept.

The concept that most actualized success for me is the clarity that comes from controlling your emotions. If you cannot control your emotions in poker, you will have tells, and you will lose just when you think the big-chip scoop is coming your way. If you cannot control your emotions in trading, you are doomed. Successful trading is more about you and your emotions than it is the markets. Gambling and trading are two peas in the same pod, as far as I am concerned, and knowing this has made me a better trader. Don't fool yourself thinking otherwise.

A Memorable Mentor
If you haven't done it, find yourself a mentor. Mine taught me early on the rudiments of the markets. He never told me how to trade, rather he let me make choices and lose, and then he told me what I might have done differently. Don't do what I did, though, which is risk too much in the beginning. Start small and work your way up. Mentors can do a lot for you, but one thing a good mentor will do for you is give you at least one rule that if you forget, or do not apply, you will get hurt. Even though I forgot this one rule more than once, I have now learned it, CASH IS KING. 

A smaller profit is no mistake compared to a reversal in fortune. Afterall, you did end the day with more cash than you began. Learn this and your trading will be much safer and more rewarding.

A Memorable Motto
Remember, when the final bell rings and the markets shut down for good, do you want your life reflection to focus on the trades you made, or what you did with your precious time on this planet? 

Money is a tool, and only a tool. It is not the end; it is a means to an end. The important question is what do you want that end to look like?
Trade in the day; invest in your life.

综合指数 2011年 10 21

如图中箭头A所示,综指虽然一度暴跌,不过综指在闭市时精确的在布林中频带(Bollinger Middle Band)获得扶持,这是综指当前的动态支持线,一般上只要综指能在此支持线获得支持,综指上扬的趋势将能维持下去,反之亦然。



FBM KLCI 21 Oct 2011
Although near the close,the bluechips index fell to 1371.18 points, the KLCI rebounded quickly, eventually closing at 1438.83 points, edging down 2.35 points, or 0.16% loss. As shown, the KLCI is still resisted by the current level of 1453 points at 50% FR. Support levels are maintained at the psychological level of 1400 points and the dynamic 14,21,31 days EMA (about 1420 points).

The arrow shown in Figure A, although the KLCI tumbled, but rebounded at closing time accurately above the Bollinger Middle Band to obtain support, which is the current dynamic KLCI support line, generally as long as this support line can be hold out, the KLCI upward trend will continue, and vice versa.
As shown in Figure B, VMA shares of the total volume slightly decreased 4.26%, but volume is still above the 40-day average trading volume (VMA) above, which show horse trading stocks as a whole is still active, which can be interpreted as a strong positive effect. 

Random indicators (Stochastic) slightly rebound, so indicated that more than 70% of the return (see arrow C), which means that short-term rise in the KLCI trend remains intact until truly random index fell below 70% thus far.
Overall, the KLCI is trying to bottom, if successful, the KLCI is expected to rebound again to form higher highs and that the KLCI is expected to resume it's upward trend, but for the bear to get rid of the predicament of the KLCI, integrated refers to the break up point now is 1514 the 200-day moving average (MA) resistance.


WALL STREET : DJIA Bullish Ahead Of EU Summit Week

Bulls Thump Bears For 267 >>> +164.3 pts Gain Weekly
 U.S. stocks blazed a steady path higher today, as investors rolled the bullish dice ahead of this weekend's highly anticipated summit of European Union (EU) leaders. Although German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy said no decisions would be made until a second meeting early next week, the duo vowed to come up with a "comprehensive and ambitious" plan to tackle the euro zone's fiscal problems. On the home front, meanwhile, Wall Street is also applauding solid earnings from blue-chip behemoths McDonald's (MCD) and Honeywell (HON), which have helped to offset a less-than-stellar earnings showing from fellow Dow component General Electric (GE). Against this rose-colored backdrop, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) ended north of 11,800 for the first time since Aug. 3, extending its winning streak to four straight weeks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA – 11,808.79) finished near a session high, advancing 267 points, or 2.3%, when all was said and done. Only Bank of America (BAC) and General Electric bucked the trend, giving up 0.2% and 1.9%, respectively, while Travelers (TRV) led the 28 advancing blue chips with a gain of 5.2%. For the week, the Dow rallied 1.4%, and ended north of its 20-week moving average for the first time since mid-July.

The S&P 500 Index (SPX – 1,238.25) also ended near an intraday acme, tacking on 22.9 points, or 1.9%, by the close. For the week, the SPX added 1.1%, extending its own winning streak to three straight, and ending above its 20-week trendline for the first time in three months. Finally, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP – 2,637.46) broke out of the red to gain 38.8 points, or 1.5%, but settled the week 1.1% lower.

Good Morning Charts & Commentaries : DJIA 60 mins / FKLI Daily

Wall Street Bulls Hit Back
 After dropping 100 points out of the gate, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) performed an about-face, blazing a steady path higher in afternoon trading. Early on, slower-than-expected growth in China, as well as a jeopardized triple-A credit rating for France, weighed on the bulls. However, celebrated earnings reports in the banking sector -- primarily those of Goldman Sachs (GS) and Bank of America (BAC) -- helped stocks climb out of the hole, as did solid sentiment data on the housing front. Furthermore, a round of media reports touting France and Germany's agreement to bolster the euro-zone rescue fund added fuel to the bulls' late-session fire, helping the DJIA to a 180-point lead by the closing bell.
 After falling as low as 11,296 in intraday action, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA – 11,577.05) climbed to a gain of 180.05 points, or 1.6%. Only IBM Corp. (IBM) and Coca-Cola (KO) ended lower, succumbing to earnings-related losses of 4.1% and 0.4%, respectively. Meanwhile, Bank of America paced the advancing blue chips with a gain of more than 10.1%.
Jump Not The Gun
OK, so Tuesday's profit takings were a little overdone but that cannot be construe as a reason for a total sentiments reversal. Those who SHORTED the FKLI at of before the close will be having a tensed & pent-up trading day.

如图中箭头A所示,富时大马综合指数(综指)上扬数日后,周五在接近1453点阻力水平遇阻,按日回软2.44点或0.17%1453点是根据综指高峰1597.08点及最近最低水平1310.53点所计算的50%费氏回归线(50% Fibonacci Retracement Line)。综指支持落在1400点。



总的来说,综指上扬多日后出现调整,是很正常的。如今综指稍微突破142131天综合加权移动平均线(Exponential Moving Average – EMA)的动态阻力线,这表示综指暂时摆脱了跌势,不过却还未能马上形成涨势。接下来若综指若能进入盘整格局中,然后形成三角形或长方形之类的盘整图形,那便是最理想的状况了。这是因为若综指能先进入盘整格局,那就可以淡化投资者套利的卖压,同时让市场重新酝酿走势。届时若综指能形成较高低(Higher-lows)再突破阻力水平(创新高)的话,那便是综指转强的讯号。

Friday Closing Charts : DJIA + FBMKLCI 07 Oct 2011

 Dow Jones Industrial Average 08 Oct 2011
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA – 11,103.12) explored a range of nearly 181 points today, but eventually ended 20.2 points, or 0.2%, lower. Nevertheless, the blue-chip barometer maintained its perch atop both the 11,100 level and its 20-day moving average. Epitomizing the hot-and-cold session, 14 of the Dow's 30 components settled lower, with financial concerns Bank of America (BAC) and JPMorgan Chase (JPM) leading the laggards with losses of 6.1% and 5.2%, respectively. On the flip side, Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) paced the advancing equities with a gain of 1.8%. 

For the week, the Dow tacked on 1.7%, but failed to conquer its 10-week trendline.

Likewise, the S&P 500 Index (SPX – 1,155.46) also traded on both sides of breakeven, but swallowed a loss of 9.5 points, or 0.8%, by the close. Unlike the Dow, though, the SPX failed to notch another victory atop its 20-day moving average. Finally, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP – 2,479.35) spent the most time in the red today, backpedaling 27.5 points, or 1.1%, by the bell. For the week, the SPX and COMP gained 2.1% and 2.7%, respectively.
FBM KLCI 07 Oct 2011
The FBM KLCI continued its rally for a third day, driven by the people-friendly Budget 2012 as well as more reassuring data and news from the United States and Europe.
The benchmark index closed 6.36 points higher at 1,400.05, on volume of 964.67 million shares.
Analysts say yesterday's volume of below one billion shares shows investors are still tentative and fearful. Analysts expect the feel-good factor to linger only over the short term, after which the realities of Europe's economy will dominate the market again.

WALL STREET : Bulls Beat Bears At 11th Hour

DJIA Gains 153 Points With Final Hour Rally
The bears took the reins right out of the gate this morning, but it was the bulls who proved victorious by the closing bell. In early trading, the major market indexes sank to fresh 52-week lows, as lingering concerns about the fiscal fate of Greece set a skeptical tone. Furthermore, both Goldman Sachs and Standard & Poor's dropped the "R" word, calling the euro zone vulnerable to a recession next year. On the home front, meanwhile, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke waxed pessimistic on the job market, but vowed that the Fed is "prepared to take further action as appropriate to promote a stronger economic recovery." What's more, even Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) newest iPhone failed to impress the Street, with the shares of the tech titan spending the afternoon in the red. Nevertheless, the bulls showed their resilience, as a last-minute surge of bargain-hunting helped the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) turn a triple-digit deficit into a triple-digit gain by the close.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA – 10,808.71) fell to a new annual low of 10,404.49 in early trading, but reversed course to end with a gain of 153.4 points, or 1.4%. Only four of the Dow's 30 components remained in the red, led by Merck (MRK) and Kraft Foods (KFT), which each gave up 0.7%. On the other hand, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) paced the advancing equities, tacking on 6.6% after performing an about-face in late-day trading.

Likewise, the S&P 500 Index (SPX – 1,123.95) tagged an annual nadir of 1,047.77, but bounced back to add 24.7 points, or 2.3%, by the close. Finally, the Nasdaq Composite (COMP – 2,404.82) fell to a new 52-week low of 2,298.89 out of the gate, but reversed course to settle with a gain of 69 points, or 3%.
