0042 GMT [Dow Jones] KLCI may rise to 1340-1344 range on follow-through buying interest on blue chips after benchmark index broke above the 1334 key resistance Friday; "The breach of 1334 on Friday is a boost to market sentiment. However, as the market has ended higher for 9 days in a row, profit-taking will set in at the higher levels to limit the magnitude of the rise," dealer says. KLCI ended +0.5% at 25-month high of 1334.95 Friday. TA Research tips KLCI's uptrend to be largely sustained over the course of the week. "The bullish breakout above the 1334 peak...will fuel upside towards the next target at 1354," house says.

0007 GMT [Dow Jones] Hong Leong Bank (5819.KU) may rise to test MYR8.80 (March 16 high) vs ending Friday at MYR8.70 (+0.3%) says dealer, following EON Capital's (5266.KU) decision late Friday to put before shareholders HL Bank's MYR5.06 billion offer for EON Capital's assets, liabilities.
