FKLI- Heading Into Range Session 

Closing slightly unchanged on stock index yesterday, market may need more than good news to continue recovering from here. With build up Selling pressure previously, market is set to correct more if there is new low formed this week. And with less encouraging for the regional market to recover due to Greece debt crisis and fiscal cliff worries, equities market is expected to have a uphill battle going up. Technically, the ability for the Dec contract to recover after it went down to 1,595 level might signifies that support based on previous low around 1,585 level remain intact. Judging from the low at previous Wednesday at 1,590 level and high on last Friday at 1,616 level, market is likely hovering within these range for the rest of this week. Else there would be another Sell-off if there is another break down below 1,595~1,590 level. If we are fortunate enough, the index futures might continue to recover if the Dec contract manage to breach above previous week high at 1,616 level. For today, pivot support for Dec contract is located around 1,596 while resistance is pegged at 1,615.

FCPO- Prepare For Round One Sell-Off

What do you know after the price successfully formed a lower high and lower low formed, the answer would be further price correction rather than to surge upwards. The psychology behind this Bearish candle formation is so reliable that it always fulfil the criteria of a downturn market, period. Nothing is more self fulfilling when you observe your own methodology works over and over again, with the condition that you stick to your contingency plan when the price move out of your expectation. The keywords here would be allowing a fair time for your own methodology to work and understand how you can "master" it, not changing the whole concept or technique when the method or system does not perform. Most likely, you would not make an impressive discovery if you kept on looking for the "high winning chances ", or "perfect system" out there. Every success trader will have their own technique or methodology, but most will agree it is the risk or money management that make them stand out or unique, because any technique or methodology are created with flaws and flaws is something people cannot accept. To compensate this "flaws", money management or risk management is used. Back to market outlook, the benchmark Feb is expecting to retrace deeper today based on the Bearish candle formation formed so far. It is easier for the market to fall further rather than to rally as there is no significant sign for the recover yet. Bullish price action such as higher low and higher high is essential to mark an temporary pause on current price weakness before it could recover further. Hence for today, pivot support for benchmark Feb is located around 2,258 while resistance is pegged at 2,338.
