Comments:    The FBM KLCI index dropped 5.09 points or 0.38%, reversing Monday’s gains, to close at 1334.52
             points. The index has returned to below its immediate support level at 1335 and crossing below the 9
             days SMA hinting that the outlook may have turned unfavourable. This is supported by a decreasing
             MACD line which suggests that the uptrend momentum is declining. On the other hand, the RSI and ADX
             indicators retained its positive view. Given the mixed signal, the near-term outlook is uncertain. As for
             now, the immediate overhead resistance is pegged at 1340 followed by 1350. The immediate support
             is envisaged to be at 1316 followed by 1310.

              market, the price has also fell below the 9 days SMA line which hints that the contract outlook may have
              turned unfavourable. This is supported by the MACD indicator with the MACD value crossing below the 9
              days EMA line. The declining RSI value hints that the buying interest is diminishing. In summary, the
              contract outlook seems to be unfavourable with a negative outweighing signal. The immediate support is
