MAS- taking flight?
MAS has broken above its intermediate downtrend line at RM0.75 a few days ago. It has now surpassed its horizontal resistance at RM0.78-0.80. With these double breakouts, it is poised to test its next resistance at the psychological RM1.00 mark.

Is this an uptrend as reported by the Star this morning? I am afraid it is too early to call for an uptrend. MAS is still in a long-term downtrend and the current move is a 'corrective' move within a long-term downtrend.

Based on the above, you may choose to trade on this stock. Do exercise careful discretion in term of trading position and always maintain a protective stop. A break below RM0.78 should be a good protective stop.
In addition to the disclaimer in the preamble to my blog, I hereby confirm that I do not have any relevant interest in, or any interest in the acquisition or disposal of, MAS.
