Technical Outlook

KKB is now resting on its strong horizontal support of RM1.45. If this support is violated, the stock's next support would be the psychological RM1.00 mark but the strong support is the horizontal line at RM0.80.

Based on poor financial performance & unattractive valuation, KKB is rated a SELL or AVOID. If it can hold at the critical support of RM1.45, it may turnaround if the financial performance recovers. However, a break below that critical support would be a bearish signal for the stock.
