If we look at the monthly chart, we can see that the next resistance would be at the June 2013 high of RM2.05. Failure to break above this level could bring forth correction/consolidation at the RM2.00 mark. However, a break below the RM1.95 could convert this bullish breakout into a bull trap. In such a tricky situation, you should set a protective stop, say at RM1.90 (i.e. 5 sen below the breakout of RM1.95) to bale out in case the breakout turns into a trap.
