Volatility Prevail

KLCI ends +0.5% at 1357.33 buoyed by gains on Wall Street overnight and firmer regional markets, say dealers. Volume traded moderate at 1.48 billion shares; market breadth positive with gainers outpacing decliners 639 to 222. Investors will continue to look to the performance on Wall Street for market direction tomorrow; anticipate market will consolidate in 1340-1370 range. Today's rebound was a knee-jerk reaction but the KLCI's inability to close Monday's gap-down move is a bearish sign. Selling into strength may persist, capping the KLCI's near term gains.
