Now Malaysians Need To Worry...

Forget about the recent recovery in stock market. With a change in parameters to the Composite Index from 100 stocks representation to a merely 30 stocks representation, our composite index managed to recover from a low of 800 to hover above 1200 as of today.
The hype about dabbling for some quick gain has fizzled off since the 30 components stock index took effect in July. Volume has dwindled off despite the manipulated upwards movement of the index. That means the play have been confined to 30 stocks with some rare selective manipulating activities popping up here and there. Many of the early hot favourites have since retreated and gone into consolidation.
This cycle is about to end soon. In other words, it is time to lock in and fold now. The risk-reward ratio is not in our favor. Gold price has shot up in recent days. Sign of another crisis to come?
On the local front, this uptrend cycle is seen as a play up to create a false perception as a diversion to the reality of what our country is facing now given our government inaction or inability to provide a framework to ward off further recessionary threat. Let alone taking us out. Perhaps, they were busy playing witch hunting in the political arena. Or they don't have any idea how to. Maybe we just don't have to money. The recent fuel hike masterstroke acts as a proof to that especially at the same time, the Singapore government reduced their pump price by 6 cents a litre.
The reality above all that is the people are feeling the pinch from a stagnant economy coupled with inflationary pressure.
Maybe these two articles below can give us a clear picture as to what is happening to our country. Backwards, we go....

Malaysia’s global competitiveness ranking dropped three positions to 24, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report for 2009-2010 released today.

The drop essentially was the result of a much poorer assessment of its institutional framework, said the report, which was released ahead of WEF’s annual meeting of the New Champions 2009 in Dalian, China.

The report said every indicator in the area had been exhibiting a downward trend since 2007, causing Malaysia to tumble from 17th to 43rd position in this dimension in just two years.

Switzerland topped the overall ranking of 133 economies, with the US fell one place to second position, and Asia continued to feature prominently with Singapore at third and Japan at eighth, and Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan all in the top 20.

The report also said security was of particular concern in Malaysia with its ranking dropped 25 levels to 85th.

Malaysia national gold reserve has dropped from 72.7 tons in July 1999 to a mere 12 tons as of July 2009.

Now FBM-KLCI index is base on 30 share and the purpose doing this is for government to easy control the index. Out of 30 share inside FBM-KLCI index the top 5 already control the movement about 45%.

Now world economic is in recovery and the gold price hits above USD1,000 per oz is mainly due to wreaking of USD and usually gold price is moving up by time to time.

Malaysia economic is late off compare with Singapore and Indonesia, also most of the investor is flow out from Malaysia so to maintenance a picture to show good economic situation the FBM-KLCI need to count base on 30 share and you know top controller in this 30 share is CIMB and you know who the CEO.
