Market Technical Reading Trading Sentiment To Stay Bearish... Chart 2: FBM KLCI Intraday

Chart 1: FBM KLCI Daily

Local Market Leads:

The local bourse, in line with the regional market slump, fell on afternoon selldown in China’s SHComp (-4.3%) and HSI (-2.3%) after the Confidence Board in China said its Leading Economic Indicator rose 0.3% in Apr, less than the initial 1.7% gain reported on 15 Jun earlier.

The regional indices like Nikkei 225 (-1.27%) and FTSTI (-1.38%) fell steeply, while the European key indices like FTSE 100 (-2%), GDax (-2.2%) and CAC 40 (-2.7%) plunged in their early trading yesterday.

Locally, the FBM KLCI benchmark reversed its early gain of 5.5 pts from 1,331.04 to a low of 1,315.84 with a loss of 9.7 pts in the afternoon, before closing the day at 1,319.84, losing 5.7 pts or 0.43%.

As investors turned nervous, recent speculative issues like KEuro (10.5sen), Gamuda-WD (-10sen) and Time (3.5sen) fell on strong profit-taking pressure.

Overall turnover increased to 741m shares from Monday’s 535m shares, but market breadth deteriorated with losers overwhelming gainers by a ratio of almost 3 to 1.

Technical Interpretations:

The FBM KLCI registered a huge bearish candle on the chart, following a “negative harami” candle recorded a day ago. This indicates a resumption of the previous selling momentum likely today.

Yesetrday’s closing also marked the first day that the index dipped to below the 10-day SMA of 1,321 since early Jun. This suggests that the index is now trading in a negative immediate-term trend.

Technically, the index should head towards the 40-day SMA of 1,309, before retesting the strength of the psychological level at 1,300.

With both the momentum indicators remaining weak, the risk is fairly high for the index to fall below 1,300 if buying support fails to return today. Further support is only seen at 1,250. Please read important disclosures at the end of this report.

30 June 2010 Daily Trading Strategy:

As expected, the index failed to maintain the sideways trend and sealed with a bearish candle on the chart yesterday.

Given yesterday’s fall to below the 10-day SMA of 1,321, the immediate-term trend for the FBM KLCI has turned negative.

In fact, the index is poised to revisit the crucial 1,300 psychological stronghold today, should the 40-day SMA of 1,309 fail to curb selling activities, in our view.

Also, dampened further by the overnight plunge in Wall Street, as well as the global markets’ retreat yesterday, trading sentiment is likely to stay bearish today.

As a result, we remain bearish on the local market outlook.

Chart 4: FKLI Intraday

Chart 3: FKLI Daily

Technical Interpretations:

Dampened by the global selldown yesterday, the local futures market gave back more than what it had gained on the past two trading days.

The FKLI fell sharply with a huge bearish candle, reversing its two positive candles recorded earlier.

The closely watched FKLI for Jul contract fell 18 pts or 1.35% yesterday to 1,315, while the expiring Jun contract closed the day at 1,315.5, losing 16.5 pts or 1.24% for the day.

The futures index also closed the day at below the supportive 10-day SMA of 1,324, suggesting a likelihood of a negative immediate-term trend ahead.

Given the poorer momentum readings on the indicators, the futures index is due to retest the 40-day SMA near 1,308 and to cover the technical gap formed in mid Jun at 1,302 to 1,304.5, before rechallenging the psychological support at 1,300.

Technically, with the current negative tone on the short-term chart layout, chances are high that the futures index may lose the 1,300 stronghold on strong follow-through selling momentum in the near term.

Upon further breakdown, we expect the FKLI to retreat further to the 1,270 support level, with an additional support at May’s low of 1,240.5.

Daily Trading Strategy:

Immediate-term negative outlook ahead, due to a sudden reversal from the recent positive candles.

Traders should exit from their recent “long” call, as there is a strong likelihood that the futures index may ease further in the next few sessions.

For today, the futures index is likely to fluctuate from 1,307 to 1,320.

Chart 5: US Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) Daily

Chart 6: US Nasdaq Composite Daily

US Market Leads:

US stocks plunged on Tuesday, sending the US benchmark DJIA down by as much as 326 pts before ending the day at 9,870.30 with 268 pts or 2.7% loss.

Investors turned nervous and sold off shares after a big drop in consumer confidence and signs of a sharper slowdown in the global economy, following huge losses in key European and Asian markets overnight.

The market opened very weak yesterday, but selling picked up after Consumer Confidence Index for Jun was reported. It fell to 52.9 versus 62.7 in May. The decline reflects worries about the labor market and the ongoing economic outlook. The street had expected it to fall to 62.

Meanwhile, the US light sweet crude oil futures for August delivery fell further by US$2.31 to US$75.94 a barrel in Nymex.

Technical Interpretations: Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)

The US DJIA tumbled on Tuesday, after recording two consecutive “doji” candles, resembling a resumption of strong selling momentum on the technical perspective.

The fall also confirmed the index losing the key 21-day SMA near 10,178. The loss of the key psychological level of 10,000 suggests that the chart has moved into a short-term bearish territory.

Going forward, with the momentum indicators dipping towards the “oversold” region, the index is likely to retest the support region of 9,200 – 9,700 soon.

In our view, more bearish signals could emerge as the DJIA moves lower to trigger the major “Head & Shoulders” formation upon losing 9,700.

Nasdaq Composite (Nasdaq)

The Nasdaq Composite index plunged 85.47 pts or 3.85% to 2,135.18 yesterday, with a huge technical gap to below the 2,190 key support level.

The swing effectively dragged the index into the short- to medium-term bearish chart outlook as it confirmed losing the 21-day SMA of 2,242.

2,190 becomes its immediate-term resistance, while the 2,000 and 2,100 supports will be revisited soon, in our view. A comprehensive range of market research reports by award-winning economists and analysts are exclusively available for download from

30 June 2010 Daily Technical Watch: Chart 7: IRCB Daily

Chart 8: IRCB Intraday

Integrated Rubber Corporation (2127) Likely to retreat towards the RM0.56 – RM0.70 region in the near term…

The share price of IRCB turned bullish after breaking out from the RM0.83 resistance level in Jan 2010 and rolled out a powerful rally.

It soared to a multi-year high of RM1.87, but immediately triggered a constant profit-taking leg.

The profit-taking pressure pressed it to below the RM1.31 level, which eventually drifted to the region of RM0.97 in Mar 2010.

After a swift rebound that hit the resistance at RM1.31 failed to attract follow-through support, the stock trended lower and breached below the RM0.97 level.

It regained its footing only near the RM0.70 level in May, before recovering slowly along the 10-day SMA.

However, after days of trying, the stock registered a bearish candle on the chart yesterday, as it closed at RM0.78 with a 4.5sen loss.

Yesterday’s close was just below the 10-day SMA of RM0.79. Added with the retreat on the momentum indicators, the stock is poised to ease further and fall below the 40-day SMA of RM0.76 soon on follow-through selling momentum.

Unless it can supprise with a technical rebound to above the RM0.83 immediate resistance level, it is likely to retreat towards the RM0.56 – RM0.70 support region in the near term.
