Bursa Malaysia Weekly Summary

KLCI Weekly Chart

Looks like KLCI is going to test the uptrend line (currently at 1430). Based on weekly chart, it is not a bear market yet. If you are holding some positions in call warrants, I think that it is a good idea to consider selling those where the underlying share is at the overbought region. I have closed my position in Kencana and KLK. Hopefully the correction is gradual so that other shares can still be pushed up.

EPF & Plus

I think that most of you all cheered when EPF & Khazanah decided to buy Plus. No more toll hike?

For me, my first reaction was: "There goes my EPF savings"!

Remember Timecom? Well Plus will be the next Timecom for EPF.

My main reason of opposing the buying of Plus is due to my belief of Peak Oil. When oil prices goes higher, do you think there will be any more cars left on the road? There will be less toll to collect for EPF. Therefore, Plus will become a bad investment for EPF & Khazanah.

For this, I'm also bearish on the auto sector, but bullish on companies that makes buses and trains.

By the way, the owners of Plus are very smart people. Somehow, they manage to unload Plus to the EPF contributors and the people of Malaysia. Most importantly, they manage to spin that this is a good investment for EPF.

To the EPF board, suckers!

Invest In Uranium

Besides gold, silver and platinum, I also have uranium in my foreign portfolio (through CCJ).

Why uranium? Read this.

By the way, I'm against a nuclear power plant in Malaysia because:
1. Nuclear waste needs to be stored in a secure place, where can we find one in Malaysia?
2. There is not enough nuclear fuel to go around, price will have to go higher than today's price to satisfied everyone's demand (this will invalidate the main reason of having a nuclear plant).
3. With our government modus operandi of awarding contracts, I expect that the main contractor would have gotten 10% by just subcontracting the work out. So if the nuclear plant cost USD3 billion, USD300 million (or MYR900 million) would have gone into some well connected person bank account.

Inverse ETF/ETNs

I will only give the stock symbol, get the details from Yahoo finance or Google finance.


Short Sector: SMDD, SJL, SSG, SDD, SDP

Short Finance: FAZ, SEF, SKF


Please note that some are mimicking x2 or x3 times the underlying index/sector, this means that the gain or loss will be magnified. If you got the timing wrong, it will completely wreck your financial status.

For me, the inverste ETF/ETN has not fulfill my buy signal. This means the index has not shown any sell signal. It could take another 6 months to get one. So wait and observe. 

Q&A: Proton, SPSetia, Parkson

What do you think of Proton-CF? the gearing is quite high at 8.76 albeit at slightly higher premium of 11%. 

How about SPSETIA-WB?

Parkson call warrant is really interesting... at > 8 gearing...


Proton: May have broken out of 13 years downtrend but weekly chart shows that consolidation is ahead. Proton-CF premium is high for my standard. Additionally, the warrant is making a lower low. I won't touch Proton at this moment. 

SPSetia has had a good run. It should be consolidating it's gain now. Look for base building process at around 4.90.

Parkson: Must not break 5.75. If it does, previous analysis is all wrong. Wait for better signal before trading the warrants.

Bursa Malaysia Weekly Summary

KLCI Weekly Chart

Chart shows a potential double top. However, it is still too early to confirm this until 1400 is broken. If you look at the volume, it is above normal. Nevertheless, it is not an euphoric volume (i.e. extremely high). More and more people are all excited about the stock market now. Last week, my uncle who has not played stock for a long time is all excited about the tips he get but did not buy. No matter what, this is a liquidity play. What is your plan after the money has dried up?

For those who have no US trading account, my advice is to open one now. When the market comes crashing, you wanna be prepared to buy inverse ETFs (ETF that short the market). At this moment, I have no balls to take a bear stand.

Gold at USD8,000?

Is gold a bubble? As long as EPF don't have gold in its portfolio, gold is still not a bubble. :p

Gold at USD8,000? What is the logic behind this?

Read Brodsky's thoughts on gold.
