Foreign investors were most probably net sellers lately

To put things in perspective, our Malaysian bourse came under selling pressures in tandem with regional / global equities weakness. Many Asian peers saw red last week, led by Thailand (-3.9%), India (-3.2%) and China shares listed in Hong Kong (-2.7%) while major U.S. bellwethers lost between 0.9% and 1.7% through the week amidst plunging commodity prices and currency swings. For instance, crude oil prices slumped 15% to US$97 per barrel and the US$ rebounded from its recent lows (e.g. up 1.6% to RM3.0071) week-on-week.

This suggests foreign investors were most probably net sellers lately. Before this, foreigners actually bought more Malaysia shares than they sold in Apr (net surplus of RM1.2b), reversing a net selling streak in Feb (- RM3.4b) and Mar (-RM0.1b). The just released statistics by the stock exchange also revealed that foreign trading participation by value has dwindled to 20% last month (from 25% the preceding month).

In comparison, local institutional funds turned net sellers – of a sum of RM1.2b in Apr – from a net buying position (RM1.8b) the month before while retail investors were evenly matched in terms of buying and selling patterns during the month (versus a net selling amount of RM0.6b in Mar) as the latter were slightly more active (24% of trading value) than the previous month (21% of trading value).

Investment Idea

My investment with RM5,000 initial capital have been growing since 2005.I found the stock market appears confusing and complicated, but it is most definitely based on logic "supply and demand". However, the laws of supply and demand as observed in the markets do not behave as one would expect. To be an effective trader, there is a great need to understand how supply and demand can be interpreted under different market conditions and how to take advantage of this Off Market Transactions in KLSE.
