KLSE: Sell SHH

I started collecting SHH since May 2014. This process went on until September. I once said that SHH is another INGRESS. This is why I can hold it "tightly" even during the "adjustment" (some people called it small bear) in Oct and Dec 2014, because I have confidence in SHH.

The waiting has paid off. All returns comes in 2 weeks time. But the money has stuck there for 10 months. Maybe I shouldn't ask for more. Considering the whole period, the return is still stellar.

I actually wanted to wait for "open flip" (i.e. 100% return). But the price shot up too abruptly, causing the candle to be out of the upper BB band. This always followed by a pull back, with no exception to any stock.

SHH


Today SHH opened high at 1.56, reached a high of 1.58 and closed at 1.44. A clear adjustment sign is coming. I didn't watch the market at the opening, but soon after the market opened I realized that maybe I should have a look at SHH. It opened high, and I know that I should sell it no matter how. I sold all my shares between 1.50-1.53 in the morning, a decision that looks to be correct at least from now.

This does not mean that SHH will stop like that. A typical trend would be adjusting for a few days (which nobody knows), and then continue its uptrend. Depending on the situation, perhaps I will buy back at a lower price.

I am delighted to have made the right decision. The main reason is, of course, a pull back is inevitable and imminent. The second reason is, I've found another share to buy.

KLSE: INARI-WB, a surprise match

The experience in the past few months has let me learnt to only look at the market after it is closed. It has become my habit now.

As I opened my portfolio few days ago, I was surprised to see an additional stock in my portfolio. I was shocked at first, because I didn't make any queue at all on that day. Soon after that I realized that my queue using “Good-till" function has matched at my entry price.

INARI-WB, 1.40. I queued this price last week, didn't think that it would really match. I like this kind of surprise, a transaction which is matched without any expectation and even without my prior notice.

Note: Good-till function, is a function that allows you to queue for a counter for up to a month without entering the queue manually everyday. HLeBroking actually possesses this function. I emailed HLIB sometime ago to enquire for this function. The efficiency of HLIB is absolutely impressive. Soon after that the representative called me and mentioned the risk of using the function "Good till". I said that I understand that and the representative will activate this function for my account. It was available to use in my account since then. When I have free cash, I can queue for a stock at a low price just for fun. Sometimes it really matches, you never know.

KLSE: SKPETRO, another downtrend

Crude oil price has been plummeting in the past few months. It has made wide coverage in all kinds of media.  The reason?  All others reasons reported on the media, e.g. over supply, decrease in demand are excuses. Except manipulation, give me a reason how a commodity price can drop 50% in 3 months. The motive? Ask Wall Street.

I couldn't care less about crude oil prices, it has nothing to do with me at the moment. Anyway, I was planning to buy SKPETRO (a component stock in KLCI) in Jan. Back then, the crude oil price was trading at about USD 50/ barrel (I used Brent Crude Oil as reference). Looking back in Dec 2014, that was the most "scary" sentiment you could find in market at that time. Everybody was talking about oil price could go even lower, that the market will crash etc.

The most funny view regaring this that I have ever heard of, is a so-called "financial analyst" who was "sharing his opinion" on the TV during the business section of a news programme. He said that in 2008, there was a subprime mortgage crisis, maybe in 2015 we will have the "subprime crude oil crisis". I really LOL when I heard this, simply because of the fact that if a crash is really coming, would the media let you know earlier?

I do not buy any of these comments. So, I was queuing for SKPETRO, hoping for a rebound. My rationale is simple, I don't believe it can go further down to USD 45/ barrel; but if the oil price rebounds, SKPETRO will follow.

But my queue didn't match at that time. Soon after that, oil price has rebounded  (recover?)  to over USD 60 . And SKPETRO follows the trend, climbing nearly 50% in 2 months.

SKPETRO rebound


I don't like to chase high. So I thought OK, it is what it is, seeking for another opportunity. But then, on 4th Mar, an announcement was released, regarding the designation of a vice chairman. Had he been any other person, the impact would be minimal. But the person of interest in this case has a last name of Mahathir, so you know his influence. The next trading day, SKPETRO dropped 7.2% with volume. Last Friday, crude oil price plunged 4%. Does this imply another wave of oil drop is coming?

This may be a second chance for me to enter. My patience has really paid-off. This time my appetite has gone bigger. I am aiming at C12 (SKPETRO has good fundamental), a new call warrant by CIMB, with the nicest exercise price, lowest premium and 1 year maturity date. But the trend of SKPETRO is not looking good. So I am just looking at a short term rebound trade. If SKPETRO breaks RM 2.00 and going further down, what I will be aiming is a big drop with volume, and that may be a chance to catch for a rebound.
