Comment: The price was stronger than expected. After the losing trade, I stayed aside for the rest of the day to watch the price action. And it is a holiday tomorrow (1 May 2009 Labour Day).

1. One points of FKLI (KLSE Future Index) = RM50
2. Commission needed for buy and sell is RM50 so we need 1 point to break even
2. Margin (Minimum Deposit for holding overnight) = RM3000
3. I have RM33,275 as deposit and now RM32.775 after the loss of RM500
