Malaysia Stock Market - Sentiment Index

Asian stock markets were mostly higher in choppy trade Tuesday as concerns over Greece's debt crisis eased somewhat. Investors were encouraged by European officials' resolve to prevent a Greek debt default. But traders remained cautious as they focused on the outcomes of a no-confidence vote against the Greek government later Tuesday and the U.S. Federal Reserve rate-setting meeting on Wednesday.

Local sentiment progressed in pessimistic tone with the Intra-day Oscillator soaked deep in the red whole day and ended at -435.08; lost 460.10 when compares with its starting point. The Average recorded a loss of 419.99.

At the end of the day, %K (yellow) of MSCD recorded as -239.01 (-32.89), %D (red) -194.21 (-18.07) and the Histogram -13.96 (-7.71). Both indicators fell lower and %K touches the supporting line of the newly constructed wedge pattern channel. The Histogram failed to complete its round bottoming and printed a longer negative bar.

MSCD shows that overall market sentiment has been lingering within a tight range for some times as investors were uncertain of the global situation. Market also plagued by local political issues and turned cautious.


FBMKLCI fell and formed a doji after today’s trade. The index is most likely to test its 30MA and 20MA around 1,556 and 1,552 respectively.

FBMSCAP printed its fourth black candle to exhibit how weak the Small Caps market is. The next support will be 12,475 which sustainability is in doubts.

FBMACE fell and rebounded when touching its immediate support at 4,177. The fact that the index closed below the 20MA indicates that the index has to regenerate its upward momentum again.
