Technical Analysis : FBM KLCI persist in consolidation mode

FBM KLCI Technical Analysis : The Fibonacci Retracement Support & Resistance

The stubbornly overbought technical momentum and also weakening trend indicators for the benchmark FBM KLCI are suggesting the current uptrend is waning. Hence, we expect further profit-taking consolidation this week until overbought momentum has been neutralized.

Moreover, weak buying momentum last week, as most investors were sidelined ahead of the nomination of candidates for the 13th general elections, suggests that the current subdued trading sentiment could persist up to election day.

As for the index, immediate support will be at the previous 1,699 record high of Jan 2013, matching the rising 10-day moving average and last Tuesday’s low of 1,688. Stronger retracement supports remain at 1,658, representing the 23.6% Fibonacci Retracement (FR) of the 1,526 low of May 2012 to the 1,699 record high of Jan 2013, and 1,633, the 38.2%FR matching the recent pivot low as strong downside buffer. 

Immediate resistance would be at the intra-day record high of 1,716, while a breakout would target the upper Bollinger band at 1,722, and then 1,740, 123.6% Fibonacci Projection (FP) level.
