Institutional buyers

Is there any way to spot the movement of institutional buyers? as they are very powerful in affecting the price.

Yes, you can, Typically it's in the volume. Anything at or above 100 lots in my opinion should be looked at.
You can on NinjaTrader set volumes associated with price points, and also there are indicators associated with standard deviation of volume.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

This is the basis of Volume Spread Analysis

see https://futures.io/traders-hideout/2503-volume-spread-analysis-vsa-volume-spread-analysis.html

Worth spending time studying VSA IMHO

Am I correct if I say there is time lag in VSA, as we can only observe what institutional buyers have done in the past. Wondering how good would it help in price action analysis in the future?

From what I understand of VSA it can assist you in identifying areas of accumulation and distrubution as well as potential turning points which in turn gives you a directional bias . If so then that is of course very powerful. Nothing can predict the future in trading it is always about stacking the probabilities in your favour and this is one way that many believe this can be done. Im not saying its the holy grail but there is a large body of published material, software ( TradeGuider? for one) and many traders who use it to one degree or another. Just have a browse around on this forum and over at forex factory and see if it appeals to you. Keep in mind that there is no easy way to profitabilty - it takes thousands of hours work regardless of the route you take.

Persoanlly I do use some basic VSA concepts but overall I find it quite complex to apply as a complete strategy.

Heres a site with some info

I take it you mean this market.

Bursa Malaysia : Market Information - Prices

The best market to trade, IMHO, is the US Stock Market - there are many reasons why, but the main one being it is the easiest one to make money trading, and this is what trading is all about.

I can not help you with KLSE, as I never even heard of it until now.

People do things differently in different countries - I have found no reason to look beyond the US for making money trading.
