Recent Insider Report for KNM (Bursa Malaysia)


In this Insider Report, do notice on 19 July 2019, Inter Merger S/B, biggest shareholder of KNM increased position to 18.5% or 8.3% outstanding. We all known what happened when owner of KNM confidently buy more of their own shares KNM. Ir Lee Swee Eng is also the Group Chief Executive Officer/Executive Director

Ir. Lee Swee Eng has over 28 years of experience in the oil and gas industry in engineering, manufacturing, construction and commissioning of oil and gas facilities.  He was the founder and the Group Managing Director of the KNM Company since inception.


Could it be possible that in TradeVSA below detected the first buy indicator way back in mid May 2019 before this Insider Report of KNM ? Likewise, there’s a support now KNM @ RM0.35 will provide a longer term support. In mind with higher crude oil prices due to escalation of Middle East tension since the Saudi oil field drone attack, there maybe more upside from the Insider Report of KNM.

Profitability Analysis of KNM Group


From the Profitability of KNM, its continual loss making maybe deceiving the public that KNM will eventually turn black as now the owner of KNM is buying more. Insiders know more than the public, a common cliché in investing with insiders.


The profit and loss statement and balance sheet cannot be truly discounted as loss making company like KNM is making a turnaround story right now and very soon announced a KNM AGM returning to the black aka “Profitability”. Perhaps relying on non-financial indicators like Volume Spread Analysis plus Insider Report can detect Smart Money/Insider movement will help you.


Weekly & Daily Chart VSA (Volume Spread Analysis) Review


Based on TradeVSA weekly chart, we spotted the change in trend with green pentagon on 11 Mar 2019. Volume increased with Line Change shown the interested by the Smart Money to accumulation KNM Group at the low price. Pullback pattern showing the chart overall still in a healthy trend and likely to break the resistance at RM0.435.


Daily KNM Group chart based on TradeVSA shown lots of hidden potential buying by the Smart Money near the support level. Spring bars or removal of weak-hand holders can be easily spotted around RM0.355 – RM0.37. Price immediately formed a good support at the Spring bars area after the buying from Inter Merger, Aveda Assets Capital, Lee & Tegas Klasik as stated in the Insider Report.


Point A = Potential entry for KNM as detected by Pentagon Screener

Point B = Potential exit / profit for KNM +67%. Is also interesting to know our Pentagon exit at point B is after Inter Merger, Aveda Assests Capital, Lee (Swee Eng) and Tegas Klasik buying KNM at 19 September 2019 as per insider report of KNM

Point C = Potential entry for KNM as per our Pentagon Screener for KNM after sign of strength which is supported after Inter Merger, Aveda Assests Capital, Lee (Swee Eng) and Tegas Klasik buying KNM at 19 September 2019


Is also good to take some profit from KNM between Point A to Point B that is Green Pentagon to Red Pentagon,...do you agreed?
