RHB Research advises investors to maintain short positions today amid weak rebounds which pointed to a short bull run.
The FKLI climbed up slightly for two consecutive days after hitting the triple bottom and closed 4.5 points higher at 1,584.5 point on Friday, it said.
“As the rebound did not trigger the previous stop-loss, the index remains in a ‘lower high’ structure. We maintain a negative trading bias,” it added.
