In this research, four proposed finite order universal portfolios were used to study Malaysia’s stock market comprehensively and the constant rebalanced portfolio (CRP) was used as a benchmark for comparison. The empirical performance of the four universal portfolio strategies was analysed experimentally concerning 95 stocks from different categories in Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) from 1 January 2000 to 31 December 2015. Combinations of three stocks data from the selected 95 stocks are used for study for short-term (1-year duration), middle-term (4-years and 8-years durations) and long-term (12-years and 16-years durations). The empirical results showed that the performances of the proposed universal strategies are outperform CRP in 1 year and 4 years durations, but did poorly in 8-years, 12-years and 16-years durations. Therefore, these four UP strategies are empirically considered to be good investment strategies in the short-term.
