KLCI: Immediate Resistance At 1645-1650

Bursa Recap: KLCI up 6.6 points after falling 57 points in five straight days
Yesterday, despite a better-than-expected HSBC flash PMI from China, most Asian markets ended lower on profit taking after rallying to multi-year highs amid concerns over weak earnings reports from Apple and Hyundai Motor. Sentiment was also dampened by news that North Korea might conduct a new nuclear test and additional long-range rocket launches.

Prior to a public holiday on 24 January, KLCI continued with its relief rally, gaining 6.6 points after hitting a low of 1602 (22 January). Selling pressure moderated as trading volume decreased to 1.16 billion shares worth RM1.67 billion against 22 Jan’s 1.27 billion shares worth RM2.23 billion. Market breadth also improved as gainers/losers ratio jumped to 1.4x against 0.59x on 22 Jan and 0.09x on 21 Jan.

FBM KLCI outlook: Immediate resistance at 1645-1650
Barring the dissolution of Parliament in the near term, KLCI could stage further relief rally amid its sharp correction of 5.8% from all time high 1700 (4 January) to a low of 1602 (22 January). Technically, the rebound above 200-d SMA (now at 1624), the golden cross in hourly MACD, the hammer candlestick formation and the refill of 8.6-pt gap on 23 Jan augur well for further recovery towards 1645 (61.8% FR) and 1650 (50-d SMA) levels.

Having said that, unless KLCI can penetrate and maintain its posture above the 50-d SMA support-turned-resistance, the rebound is not likely to be sustainable and the index may retrace back 200-d SMA and 1600 psychological supports again amid election jitters.

We still advocate investors to SELL INTO RALLIES as further surge will trigger profit taking and de-risk ahead of the major event risk i.e. 13th general election. We believe that 2013 could be a year of two distinct halves, with 1H likely to be volatile as the general election has to be held no later than end-Jun while 2H to be more promising and Bursa Malaysia should perform better to reach our Institutional Research’s year-end target of 1750 when risk appetite returns, but largely dictated by the election outcome.

How To Choose Your Forex Broker?

How Can you Make Sure You Choose an Efficient Forex Broker?
The forex markets are not closed anymore and therefore anyone who wants to trade in currencies can do so without any issues. All that you need is a working knowledge of the forex trading markets, a good forex broker that offers you an efficient forex trading platform and you can start in the area of forex trading to make some decent monies. While anyone can start to trade in the forex markets, the fact is that you need to have some information about the manner in which it works before you can start to make profits. A good forex broker provides this basic course in forex trading that you can benefit from.

There are also a large number of other aspects about a forex broker that you need to ascertain before you can make this choice. Many people take this decision in a hurry because they are so eager to start trading in the forex markets. Make sure that you do not make this mistake since this decision can be key in whether you make profits and continue in the forex trading arena or quit after a few trials.  

The Right Steps Towards Choosing an Efficient Forex Broker
The forex trading industry is not regulated via a standard or single entity. This is why there are a larger number of reasons why fraudsters can find loopholes in the process and create companies that may not be providing full and proper service to forex traders. Just because a company has a good website and makes a show of good customer service does not indicate that they will not fraud you in the end. Here are some things that you need to do to make sure that you are choosing a reliable forex broker that will help you gain better profits in the industry. Your first shortlist should be made on the basis of word of mouth information from friends, relatives and acquaintances. You can also use a quick search on the Internet to get some prominent names in the industry.

- Eliminate some names from this list on the basis of internet reviews and feedback. You can also do a quick check on the websites to get a feel of what they are offering or the number of years that they have been around. While this elimination does not guarantee that the remaining ones will be reliable and efficient, you can at least remove the forex brokers that do not seem efficient.

 - A more detailed level of research will be required for the forex brokers that are remaining. You will need to check if they are regulated by some financial body or not. These financial bodies are different in different countries since there is no global regulatory body for forex trading. NFA and CFTC in the United States of America and FSA in the United Kingdom are well known financial institutions that you can rely on.

- The remaining short list is likely to be even shorter. These are the ones that you should look through for details such as the features that they are offering and the cost of membership and fee structure.
