The Trinity Of The Stock Market

The Trinity Of The Stock Market
Entering the second half of another less than stellar year, FBM KLCI hit a 52 weeks low of 1502. Our local bourse has been underperforming regional peers. Year-to-date KLCI is down more than 10%. In fact, KLCI's peak in the past 1 year was 1684. It would no doubt appear that our local stock market h...

Retail Investors Are Not Lambs To Slaughter, They Have Families Too

Retail Investors Are Not Lambs To Slaughter, They Have Families Too
For many years, our local stock market had subdued retail investors participation. There are many reason why but mainly it has to do with the past financial crises.
