Hi lai

I don't know these 2 stocks, MMSV and Seacera. I will give you the technical take only.

Seacera is still in an uptrend. The 50-d SMA line at RM1.15 could be a good support. A rebound from this level could send the stock back to recent high of RM1.40. Watch out for bearish divergence. If you are trading; buy at RM1.15 & sell near to RM1.40.

MMSV is hugging onto its steep 20-d SMA line at RM0.40. If it breaks below this line, it could slide to RM0.35 & then RM0.30. Both levels are horizontal supports & the next 50-d and 100-d SMA line supports.
