MARKET DATELINE 21 October 2010
Market Technical Reading
Recapturing The 10-day SMA Will Renew Upbeat Sentiment...

Chart 1: FBM KLCI Daily Chart 2: FBM KLCI Intraday

Local Market Leads:

♦ Local market pared down early losses by ending slightly lower on Wednesday, after most of the Asian markets
recouped their early losses on bargain-hunting support in the afternoon.

♦ Boosting investors’ confidence was a strong rebound in Shanghai Composite. The index inched up 0.07%, after
plunging nearly 2% at one stage on a surprise rate hike by China’s central bank in late Tuesday.

♦ As a result, Asian markets finished mixed, with Nikkei 225 dropping 1.66%, but Taiwan Weighted and KOSPI
bounced back to end up by 0.97% and 0.71% respectively.

♦ Back home, the FBM KLCI was down only 1.87 pts or 0.13% to 1,486.78, dragged down by Axiata (-6sen), GenM
(-5sen) and RHBCap (-8sen). But, the index hit an early low of 1,476.56 just after the opening bell.

♦ Overall market tone was rather upbeat with continuous rotational plays on lower liners and glove-related stocks,
like ASB (+2sen), TimeCom (+2sen), Equine (+5sen) and Latexx (+29sen). Daily volume stayed robust at 1.49bn
shares with 408 counters down versus 385 counters up.

Technical Interpretations:

♦ From the 1,476.56 low (-12.09 pts), the FBM KLCI recovered on sustained buying momentum throughout the day.

♦ Though the key benchmark finished at slightly below the 10-day SMA of 1,488, there is a chance for it to reclaim
the SMA today following a positive candle registered on the chart yesterday.

♦ In fact, in our view, should it fully regain and stabilise at above the 10-day SMA today, the benchmark could see a
technical rebound soon.

♦ Again, upon removal of the recent high of 1,503.82, the index will likely refresh its bullish upswing momentum.

♦ Besides its immediate support at a technical gap near 1,472.32 - 1,476.05, we continue to bet on the 40-day SMA
of 1,458 and the solid resistance-turn-support level of 1,450 to protect its medium- to long-term uptrend.

Daily Trading Strategy:

♦ Despite failing to reclaim the 10-day SMA of 1,488 yesterday, we see a good chance for further near-term
recovery as the local and regional markets’ performance appeared more resilient than we had expected.

♦ Apart from that, we were encouraged by the solid rotational plays on the lower liners and the selective sectors,
which have kept the trading sentiment on an upbeat mode with robust participation in recent sessions.

♦ Therefore, in our opinion, further recovery to above the 10-day SMA today will attract further follow-through
buying support in the near term.

♦ And once the recent high of 1,503.82 can be cleared, the short-term technical scenario will return to positive as
the benchmark gears up to rechallenge the historical high at 1,524.69.

♦ On the downside, the solid medium-term support at 1,450 level and the 40-day SMA of 1,458 are expected to
keep sellers at bay.

Chart 3: FKLI Daily Chart 4: FKLI Intraday

Technical Interpretations:

♦ Underpinned by the afternoon improvement in the overseas sentiment, the KL futures market managed to recover
from the 1,476 low and ended slightly higher yesterday.

♦ And as it successfully outperformed the slightly negative closing in the cash market, the FKLI for Oct contract
inched up 1.00 pt or 0.07% to settle at 1,491.00.

♦ On the chart, the futures index acquired a second positive candle at above the 10-day SMA of 1,486 to suggest a
meaningful technical rebound could be on the cards.

♦ In fact, with the stochastic oscillators generating a fresh “buy” signal, we are quite optimistic that the FKLI will
rechallenge the recent high of 1,501 soon.

♦ And beyond 1,501, it will set the stage for a potential resumption of bullish rally towards the all-time high of

♦ In the meantime, it continues to depend on the solid supportive 10-day SMA to ward off any immediate weakness,
while its bullish medium- to long-term technical view stay intact at above the 40-day SMA of 1,458 and the 1,450
support level.

Daily Trading Strategy:

♦ Yesterday’s defence at above the 10-day SMA of 1,486 continued to paint an optimistic chartview on the near-
term direction of the futures market.

♦ Therefore, traders should hold given the view that the FKLI will likely retest the recent high of 1,501 soon, before
turning more upbeat on the outlook going forward.

♦ As a result, we foresee the FKLI to swing from 1,480 to 1,501 today.

Chart 5: US Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) Daily Chart 6: US Nasdaq Composite Daily

US Market Leads:

♦ Following Tuesday’s sharp correction, the bulls made a strong comeback on the back of a series of upbeat
quarterly earnings news as well as a weaker US dollar.

♦ Dow component, Boeing rose 3.3% after posting stronger-than-expected quarterly earnings and a hike in its full-
year forecast. Yahoo! gained 2% as its third-quarter profit increased more than doubled, while Wells Fargo
advanced 4.3% on its record quarterly profit.

♦ Besides, the weakened greenback also boosted investors’ risk appetite on equities after the Fed’s Beige Book
showed that the US economy grew at a “moderate pace” with little sign of acceleration. Investors viewed the
report as another sign that the Fed will need to introduce more measures to boost the economy.

♦ Led by the weakness in the greenback as well as a smaller-than-expected rise in weekly crude inventories, the US
light sweet crude oil futures for the expired Nov delivery jumped by US$2.28 or 2.9% to US$81.77/barrel.

Technical Interpretations:

Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)

♦ As the DJIA kicked off a timely rebound from near the 21-day SMA of 10,927, the index rallied 129.35 pts or
1.18% to 11,107.97 on Wednesday.

♦ And as the Dow has successfully regained the 11,000 level with a bullish candle, this marks renewed hopes for
further recovery ahead.

♦ Still, it is required to penetrate the recent high of 11,159.05 to restore its bullish momentum towards the next
immediate resistance target at 11,250.

♦ Otherwise, it could still consolidate at between the 21-day SMA and the recent high of 11,159.05.

Nasdaq Composite (Nasdaq)

♦ In line with the previous “inverted hammer” candle, the Nasdaq Composite index bounced back by 20.44 pts or
0.84% to 2,457.39 Wednesday.

♦ Though the index sealed the day with a positive candle, the mixed momentum readings suggest that any rebound
potential could be capped.

♦ In other words, until it can remove 2,470 and the recent high of 2,480.95 convincingly, the risk of a resumption
of selling should not be completely ignored. The immediate support is pegged at the 21-day SMA of 2,398.

Daily Technical Watch:

Chart 7: AFG Daily Chart 8: AFG Intraday

Alliance Financial Group (2488)

Medium- to long-term uptrend remains largely intact…

♦ Since the beginning of the uptrend in Mar 2009, the share price of AFG has been trending along the Uptrend Line

♦ In a consolidation phase in Nov 2009 – Jan 2010, the stock formed a base near the UTL, before accelerating its
upward momentum to top a high at RM3.18 in Apr 2010.

♦ But a subsequent profit-taking leg has brought down the share price to hover at around the UTL again in Jun.

♦ Thereafter, the stock has been trending along the UTL and hit a multi-year high of RM3.27 in early Oct, before
the current retreat to close at RM3.16 on Wednesday.

♦ The stock registered a “negative harami” candle and chalked up negative momentum readings on the indicators
with a slight downtick on the 10-day SMA.

♦ Technically, the stock is poised to see further downside momentum in the near term.

♦ However, as the stock still trades at above the 40-day SMA of RM3.15, it should be able to sustain at above the
UTL and the critical support level at RM3.10 in the near term, in our view.

♦ In other words, its medium- to long-term uptrend remains largely intact and the stock is open for a chance to
rechallenge its upside at the RM3.27 high, before moving towards the RM3.30 and RM3.48 resistance levels upon
the revival of the buying momentum.

Technical Readings:

♦ 10-day SMA: RM3.225

♦ 40-day SMA: RM3.151

♦ Support: IS = RM3.10 S1 = RM2.95 S2 = RM2.80

♦ Resistance: IR = RM3.30 R1 = RM3.48 R2 = RM3.68
