PERUSAHAAN SADUR TIMAH MALAYSIA (PERSTIMA) BHD (5436.KL) MI Scooting Into Notable Territory

PERUSAHAAN SADUR TIMAH MALAYSIA (PERSTIMA) BHD (5436.KL)’s Mass Index reading has moved above the key level of 27, indicating that the shares might be ready to make a significant move.  The Mass Index is a measure of volatility that can be extremely helpful in identifying reversal patterns. While it does not predict the direction of a reversal, the indicator has proven to be quite accurate in analyzing trading ranges to determine when a reversal is likely to occur, particularly over long periods of time. As a result, the indicator should be an instrumental part of any traders toolbox.  The Mass Index indicator was invented by Donald Dorsey and uses the difference between the high and low in a given interval to spot potential price reversals. The main assumption is that prices tend to reverse when ranges widen beyond historical averages. Since this difference is constantly changing (ranges are always widening and narrowing), traders can use the Mass Index to generate trade signals, which occur when the index line (typically 25 periods) moves above 27 and then drops below 26.5.
