ASM 2016 Annual Dinner Competition

This year, we are sponsoring again 5 tickets to 2016 ASM Annual Dinner. All you have to do is predict the closing FBM KLCI at the end of trading day 11 November 2016. The 5 closest predictions will each win one ticket (worth RM150) to 2016 ASM Annual Dinner. In the event of a tie, the earlier submitted entry will win the prize.

You must be a member of ASM or an existing newsletter subscriber of TAS Search to enter into this competition. The Annual Dinner tickets are fully transferable provided that the person you transfer to is also a member of ASM or an existing newsletter subscriber of TAS Search.

Hurry! Entry closes at 11:59 pm on 7 November 2016 (Monday).  Given that it is harder to make your prediction if you submit way ahead of the deadline, we will reward early submission by expanding your prediction to +/- 2 points per trading day ahead of 7 November. For example, if you submit before the market opens on 7 November and make a prediction of 1700, we will treat your prediction to be in the range of 1698-1702.  If you submit before market opens on 2 November (4 trading days ahead) and you make a prediction of 1750.23, we will treat your prediction to be in the range of 1742.23-1758.23. 

Winners will be announced here and on our Facebook fan page. Winners will also be notified through email. In case of dispute, our decision is final and binding.


This year's competition is certainly more challenging than last year's. The closing date was intentionally chosen to be just before the US presidential election. The market went through a roller coaster ride during the period, first dipping due to FBI's decision to review Hillary Clinton's newfound emails. The market recovered significantly before the presidential election after FBI confirmed that the decision not to prosecute Clinton remained unchanged. The market then took a beating with the surprising win of Trump as the new US President. The FBMKLCI eventually ended 1,634.19 on 11 November 2016.

Congratulations to our following winners! You have each won yourself a ticket to 2016 ASM Annual Dinner valued at RM150. Please check your email for details.
