20070131 0515 pm. The expected downward trend did not materialise, essentially a sideways day.

20070131 1107 am. FKLI first 15 min candle provide clue to the general direction for the day.

20070131 It was mid August 2006, you identified Magnum corp as a potential 'buy', a cash generating gaming company (good news) with corporate governance issues (bad news). No analyst recommend buy on this company with 5 consecutive quarters of disappointing earnings. So you decide to enter on technical berakout, anywhere between Rm2.05 to 2.10. The price two days ago hit RM3.06, so you are now sitting to near 50% return. What do you do?
A Sell everything and lock in your profits
B Sell 1/2 the positin and let the remainder ride to stop at breakeven.
C Size up, Add On and double the position
D Do nothing, hang on for another 15% gain to eke out.
E Sit and wait.

20070130 0515 pm. FKLI ends up down, a Trend day down today.

20070130 1102 am. The first 15 min candle showed indecision, so it was best to wait for clear break in direction off this candle.

20070130 0856 am. Since the break of the upper trend channel line resistance, KLCI has made nice rebound. FKLI follows suit, with a 20 pt move off last week's lows.

20070126 1456. KLCI comes up to test the downtrendline.

20070126 10:46 am. At 10:33 the cash looks on the way to meet the objective of the H&S neckline break at 1164.

Thursday, January 25, 2007

20070125 0333 pm. With the break of the neckline of the H&S pattern on the KLCI, we would expect the cash KLCI to retest 1164.
