The Malaysia Share Market is one of the best performers in Asia. Three years back, the government of Malaysia had made a pledge to loosen its hold on the corporate sector and sell its shareholdings in state firms. But, it still is trying to own more of the stock market. The investors are not too happy with this because they believe that the stocks are held too tightly.
The market velocity, in 2006, was 32%. The Malaysia conference promises to reform Government Linked Companies (GLC) and remove state equity. The government is for fixing the state-linked firms before selling down. It is important to note here that the biggest companies of the Malaysian market seldom appear among the top traded stock.
Market surveys reveal that the state firms like, power utility Tenaga Nasional, Telekom Malaysia, Malaysia Airlines etc. are among the best performing companies in the country. Very recently, the Malaysia share prices were a little higher in early trading and the investors were more interested in services, construction and property stocks. The technical indicators predict a volatile market in the short term.
The investors while trading must check all information. They should be aware of the true value of a stock and should invest prudently. The share capital and portfolio need to be protected.
In 1960, the Malayan Stock Exchange was formed and this carried out trading in shares.
The market indices of Malaysia are as follows:
Finance Index. Properties Index
Second Board Index
MESDAQ Market Index
Consumer Products Index
Industrial Products Index
