The small-cap stocks have rebounded off their lows. Now many have broken above their downtrend lines. If we look at FBMSCAP, FBMACE and FBMFLG, we can see that all three indices have broken above their respective downtrend lines.

Based on the above, I think the market is likely to continue the gradual recovery in the next few weeks. However, you need to watch out for the upcoming holidays on August 31, September 12 & September 16.  I believe trading could be tricky in mid-September as two of these holidays will fall in the same week. Good luck!!
