The week is starting soon and we hope you’re not feeling the blues as market is starting to come back to live and things are starting to heat up!

Recap for STI & HSI 

For our local market, as mentioned in our previous post, banks earnings over in the US gave a push to our local banks, especially for OCBC and UOB.

Electronic stocks also saw some rebound as the 10 year yield curve started to ease up. Nasdaq also had a rebound bringing further positivity to the markets. Energy stocks saw some pullback which is healthy while oil stocks pushed further up.

As for the Hong Kong market, it only traded for three days as it was closed for a day due to typhoon warning and one day due to Chung Yeung Festival. Overall, EVs , tech stock saw a rebound in the HK market while HSI moved up to our initial target.

Key Events to Watch For 

1.Earnings! Earnings have kicked off in the US and dozens of companies will be reporting in the coming week, including Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), as the first major wave of third quarter earnings results gets underway.

On Thursday Netflix will kicks off third quarter reporting for the ‘FAANG’ group of U.S. tech giants Facebook , Apple  Amazon.

Take note of earnings in Singapore too.!

2 Chinese GDP! On Monday, the third quarter gross domestic product for China will be released alongside with the factory production and retail sales. These are data to see the health of the economy and economist are expecting growth of around 5.2%. If it comes below then market might have some reaction to it depending on how bad the numbers are, but if it jumps on the upside it could spark more upside as this might signal recovery for the world’s second largest market.

3. U.S data he U.S. is to release data on industrial production on Monday followed by reports on buiding permits and housing starts on Tuesday.

4. Bitcon futures ETF! For those interested to get your hands on bitcoin this ETF might provide an avenue for it. The first U.S listed futures ETF are set to launch in the coming week barring any last minute objection from the SEC.

The ProShares Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund is scheduled to start trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday. A day later, the Invesco Bitcoin Strategy ETF, would also be allowed to launch unless the SEC blocks it.The ETFs will be based on bitcoin futures that already trade on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange rather than the cryptocurrency itself amid regulatory concerns over a potential lack of liquidity and the risk of price manipulation on spot exchanges.

5. Take note of the 10 year yield too. It did move up on Friday. Don’t overlook this point.

Technical Levels to Watch For This Week

Straits Times Index 17th Oct 2021

STI saw a nice rebound of about 60 points when it broke our resistance line last week . It reached our upside of 3160 on the back on our banks moving, Jardine and Venture having share buy backs . With renewed interest of opening up, this also has caused aviation stocks to move up but we prefer a pullback now before entering. Positive sentiments continue to flow and we might see our next resistance target of around 3200.

HSI

HSI also saw some bounce on a shorter week hitting our first resistance. The closing bar on Friday was a nice pin bar candle. As we see US side closing strong and the S&P cutting above its downtrend line. This could bring more positive movement as the bulls look to overcome the bears in the coming week. Watching HSI to break that resistance of around 25404. If that breaks, our next upside resistance would be 26209.

Trade safe and remember to have a sound trade plan!

Are Banks Back In Play?

14th October, 2021, 7:52 PM

Are Banks Back In Play?

Are banks back in play? Lets take a quick look at the charts to see if momentum to the upside has returned.

Lets take a look at OCBC first.

Chart source: AdvisorXs 14th Oct 2021

OCBC Bank has broken above its horizontal resistance of around $11.64 which our clients were alerted on. From there we can see if move higher to our upside targets. A new upside move might be in play as banks are starting to come back in play. The big banks in US are also reporting results this week which might give a boost to our Singapore side if results are good. Volume is also starting to return as traders are starting to come back to the bank counters.

We might see OCBC move up to around $12 which is the gap resistance and a break of that might see it push higher to $12.24.

UOB

Image Source: AdvisorXs 14th Oct 2021

UOB chart quite similar to OCBC’s chart as it broke above its horizontal resistance of around $26.34. Volume started to come in yesterday too as our three local banks started getting more attention. If this level is able to hold, we might see it move to $26.90.

DBS

DBS is the only bank that has yet to break out. Will it breakout soon? Is this on your watchlist? We have drawn our levels what we are targeting. What will your trade plan be like?

As we can see, momentum looks like its returning to the three local banks with DBS lagging behind. Will it catch up?

IFast – [ Did You Miss It Again? Want To Be Included In Future?

12th October, 2021, 5:25 PM

IFast – [ Did You Miss It Again? Want To Be Included In Future? IFast 12th Oct 2021

Image source: 12th Oct 2021

Another spectacular run for IFast despite the markets being in the red. One of the rare few bigger cap counters that is in the green today. Part of the reason might be that it reported that under its advisory arm, the AUA has crossed over $1B, which is an increase of around 62% Y-O-Y, very impressive. That has probably gave a boost in the share price plus the chart which we mentioned just two days back also helped in the continual movement.

Now as traders and investors piled up on it and as we get more questions whether can enter or not? Well, we’re going to be honest and say that its not an easy question to answer as ALERT was sent out last Friday when price was just trading at $9.27. The risk has increased as the risk reward ratio is much lower now. Only if you’re a disciplined trader than finding an entry point might make sense. Staying above $9.72 might see IFast move higher as there looks to be more room on the upside in the coming weeks.

IFast has been an uptrend stock and probably one of the best uptrend stock for the SG market this year and is one of the stock that we alerted our client numerous times through out the year.  Did you miss this stock?

Wilmar – [ Back In Play? ]

11th October, 2021, 7:28 PM

Wilmar – [ Back In Play? ]Wilmar 11th Oct 2021

Chart source: AdvisorXs 11th Oct 2021

Wilmar finally saw life after drifting lower for about 6 months since April. It finally broke its 50ema and from the chart you can see that it hasn’t happen for the last 6 months! So when that happen , you can guess what we did! Yup, our EXCLUSIVE CLIENTS were alerted of it! SEE BELOW! ⬇

A Gap up happened the next day and we saw a nice 5% upside since our entry! It was very near our SECOND TARGET but it started to retrace. What’s healthy is that the fast moving averages are starting to slope up, the 5ema is above the 20ema which might start to indicate a trend reversal. We’re still early in a trend reversal so its not all clear skies yet. A retracement back to around $4.20 is fine but if it goes back down to around $4 then that’s worrying.

Commodities counters are in play, so hopefully this brings some positive sentiments to Wilmar too.

We hope you are well rested and ready for the week ahead.  As we ahead into another week lets do a recap and see what next week might bring.

Recap for STI & HSI 

For our local market, STI fought hard despite a few negative session over in the US. Energy,Oil, hospitality and covid related counters took center stage last week. Counters like Golden Energy, First Resource, Wilmar, Sats, Q&M Dental, Raffles Medical saw upside last week.

As for the HSI,  it was trying to find its footing as tech stocks saw some recovery as market is starting to absorb the bad news of  Evergrande and tech regulations.

Key Events to Watch For 

Over the weekend, our government gave more clarity in our battle with Covid , highlighting simplified healthcare protocols and the need for our mental attitude towards Covid. We’re slowly moving forward and becoming a Nation living with Covid. Recovery plays liek SATS, hospitality reits might continue to be in play. Energy and oil counters are also currently in play too.

Some events to watch out for overseas

1. Some of the World’s biggest banks will also kick off their Quarter 3 earnings season with Banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs reporting their earnings this week.
2. The key U.S. economic report to watch this week is Wednesday’s data on consumer price inflation for September.
3. The Fed is to publish its September meeting minutes on Wednesday amid expectations that it will begin tapering asset purchases before the end of this year, an important first step towards eventual rate hikes.
4. Annual meetings of the World Bank and the IMF get underway Monday, where officials will discuss the global economy, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and global taxation issues.
Technical Levels to Watch For
image source: AdvisorXS 10th Oct 2021

For STI, the support of 3024 held and we saw it break our short term downtrend line but resisted by the horizontal resistance previously mentioned at 3112. This week would be interesting as we watch and see if this resistance would break. If this breaks we might we a nice rebound for the week, our upside resistance is around 3160.

For HSI ,it has also broken the short term downtrend as the buying overcame the selling despite negative news which is a positive sign to us once again. It has reached some resistance around 25k and a clear break with a bullish bar might see more upside to around 26k with short term resistance in its path. Inflation fears, bad results earnings from US side might have negative sentiments so do watch out for it.

IFast – [ Will It Retest The High? One Of The Best Uptrend Stock For The Year]

8th October, 2021, 5:11 PM

IFast – [ Will It Retest The High? One Of The Best Uptrend Stock For The Year]

Ever since IFast made a new high of $10.10 it started to retrace and being an uptrend stock, we were waiting for an opportune time to seek another entry. And the day came and it was today! As we saw volume coming in, a break of the 20ema and we immediately alerted our EXLCUSIVE CLIENTS! Judging from its chart pattern, IFast usually  have another one-two more day of move up before it takes a break. So fingers crossed that it’ll reach our second target of $9.72 and if we can overcome the resistance of $9.77 we might see a re-test of  the all time high of $10.10. It has currently closed at the short term downtrend and if it can stay above that, our targets might be met soon. =)

IFast 8th Oct 2021

Image source: AdvisorXs 8th Oct 2021

IFast has been on an uptrend and possibly the best uptrend stock in Singapore market for this year. We have alerted our EXCLUSIVE CLIENTS numerous times throughout this year with the earliest being right at the start of the year when it was just trading at $3.11!  In fact it was our first alert for the year! The latest being just in Sept when it was at $8.49 before shooting up 🚀to $10.10!

When was the last time you went to the dentist, if you’re like me afraid of the dentist then the answer would probably be very very long ago.HAHA! Well, the last time I went to the dentist was 8 years ago. 😁 But did you know that Q&M Dental not only does dental work, it is now involved in Covid work.

Q&M, which was awarded a tender by the Health Promotion Board in May 2021 to provide Covid-19 swab and testing services. Daily lab tests will also increase and with the increase in cases revenue is expected to increase for the group. This is an additional new revenue stream for the group.

As this counter corrected about 20% we were waiting for an opportunity for an entry and yes it came!!

Just this week on Monday, we saw an increase in volume and a break of its downtrend line. And yup, our EXCLUSIVE CLIENTS were alerted of it!

And in just three days we saw two of our targets being hit! A nice 6% for three days. The increased in volume is healthy and we might see the next target of $0.625 being hit in the next couple of days. Will update if it hits there. So stay tune for our next target.

Palantir (PLTR) – [ Huge Military Contract Win! Where To Now?]

6th October, 2021, 9:21 PM

Palantir – [ Huge Military Contract Win! Where To Now?]

image source: palatir.com

Palantir Technologies (PLTR) surged around 7% in the premarket after the company said it won a $823 million contract to provide the Army with its Gotham platform, which is “an operating system for defense decision making and is specifically designed to connect the dots between disparate sources,”

Palantir said the platform will “support Army Intelligence users worldwide with a globally federated Intelligence data fabric and analytics platform spanning multiple security classifications.”

This is very good news for the company as it signal confidence and is the way forward in modernizing Army intelligence.

Technical Outlook 

Image source: Tradingview.com 6th Oct 2021

Palantir is currently sitting around its horizontal support but its below its mid term uptrend line. With the news released, its looking to gap up above that uptrend support line and regaining its uptrend. If it can stay above that line of around $24.85 we might see more interest in Palantir to move it up to $28 and even to $30.

Its downside support is  $21 and $17. Palantir is gaining traction and this is one stock that you might want to keep a keen eye on. Don’t miss it.

Nio Inc (NIO) – [Time To Look At It? ]

4th October, 2021, 8:25 PM

Nio Inc (NIO) – [Time To Look At It? ]

Image source : nio.com

Nio has corrected about 40% since the last high in Jan. Ever since then it has been on a downtrend despite having positive QoQ growth for six quarters in a row. It has caught our attention as the price seems to be consolidating around $35. Lets take a look at the chart now.

Nio 4th Oct 2021

Chart Source: Tradingview.com

We can see the horizontal support is around $34 and if price manages to hold that are we might start to see some rebound. Nio has been neglected by the markets and with EV coming back, this might spark some interest in this stock. The next support might be around $31. These are some points to scale in for long term holding.

As for trading, we also look to trade around the support and cut if these levels break. Some upside we’re looking at is $40 then $48. Watching it keenly.

Yours
