No risk no gain.
A defensive player does not take enough risk to warrant the rewards.
Full stop.
Five points a day, keeps you out of harm's way.

Will this be a concern for Monday????

"Wall Street’s momentum turned negative over the past week as concerns mount about a US economic slowdown and retail sales ahead of the Christmas shopping season, analysts said.

In the week to Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average blue-chip index fell 0.70% to 12,194.13.

The broad-market Standard and Poor’s 500 lost 0.30% to 1,396.71 while the technology-stacked Nasdaq lost 1.91% to close at 2,413.21. " -biz.thestar.com.my

Composite closed at 1209.48.... A huge leap for a day.
Although momentum has been built for bull run, do investors start questioning and be cautious of the bear?
Typically, early investors in the market had earned since the CI been about 300+ till 1200+, would it be a good time to buy things like bonds and gold?

Seems like oil palm stocks are hot again as CPO futures rise...

Great to trade stocks like these right? One moment hot, one moment quiet...

"The CPO benchmark third month futures contract was up 14% during the same period at yesterday's close of RM1,917 per tonne. It hit a high of RM2,032 per tonne on Dec 28 last year" -biz.thestar.com.my

The KLCI seems to be on a relentless march recently. Today, it closed at 1243.57, another 6.94 points up. Slight correction in the morning but KLCI recovered its momentum in the evening.

A lot of research houses are expecting the KLCI to breach it's all time high record of 1332.04 soon. CIMB Research is forecasting KLCI to touch 1440 this year.

On the other hand, the Second Board Index closed at 95.50, still hovering below the 100 point level.

The general sentiment of the market seemed to be encouraging but I find that Blue Chips rally had stalled while the 2nd line stocks are rallying.  These could indicate a serious correction ahead. 

To those who had not come in, hold it.  Those stocks could be cheaper after CNY.

For those who had gone in, probably got at least 10% profit d.  Can consider selling anytime.
When the time comes, all investment knowledges should be passed to the younger generations for further enhancement.

A decline today... :(
Yeah, blue chips had been rallying. May be Mesdaq/2nd Board's turn?
"A re-rating of selected Mesdaq counters may be on the cards, according to TA Securities analyst Yeoh Yung Juen" -biz.thestar.com.my

1 interesting point now could be analysing the past records for seasonal stock movements like what penang_lim say may be true.

Was in a finance class yesterday....
A topic on the current stock market arose.
(BEFORE READING FURTHER, PLZ TAKE NOTE THESE ARE PEOPLE'S OPINION AND NOT FACTS)

Student: Wat do you think about the current stock market
Lecturer: I believe in the 10 year cycle. 1987 got recession. 1997 too...
Student: But lately we got foreign investment coming in like the banks from Middle east
Lecturer: True. The inflow of cash is good but do you remember what caused the recession in 1997? I prefer them to come in with investments that are not that liquid like investments in machines and etc. Banks would typically come in in cash and cash can be moved in or out easily...

What do you think?? An interesting bit...

Of course, these are people's opinion only.... NOT ADVICE. Good for discussion though

Good point as the 1997 crisis in Malaysia is due to $ but not investment.  The more $ the foreign bank/trading companies dump in, the more they control Ringgit.  Smart move of our government that Ringgit was controlled.  Like now, the crisis won't be as bad due to the fact that we have more trust funds to cushion the fall.  The bear will come anyhow but I don't see it coming now.
