Most of us still can remember the year 1997 economy crisis which hit whole Asian countries. Those countries that major affected are South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Laos and Philippines. At that time, we can see that all these countries currencies dropped to a lower level against the US dollars.
During that year, the economies of Southeast Asia were the main attraction for foreign investors due to its high interest rate. We observed that the hot money pumped into these regions various sector such as properties, stocks and so on. The growth domestic product rate was 8 – 10 % for these countries.
There’s no doubt that it was a strong market rally for quite sometimes. For the past 3 days, we can observe that the stock market drop due to having healthy correction to its uptrend. Will the correction continue tomorrow? The probability is not that high as it’s already drop to the level where it’s great time for trader to initiate ‘LONG’ position.
Last Friday 21st Jan 2011 market closing at 1543 after dropping 24.5pts. Previously, many analysts and financial experts hope that the correction can drag the index towards the 1550 – 1540 levels as it will help to garner enough strength to break through the 1600 level. So, I think it’s time for the index hit next target which is breaking through the 1600 level.
