The Week Ahead Sept 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

25th September, 2022, 5:08 PM

0.75% rate hike and probably more pain ahead, as Fed remains its hawkish view which didn’t sit that well with the markets and we saw selling coming in throughout the week. As always we warned about going in before any big event and always waiting the day after before making an moves. Hopefully this saved those who were considering going LONG before a bloodbath happen.

As S&P500 comes very close to June low, this could give rise to an opportunity to add into our long term portfolio as this support becomes a significant point for the market to test. If this support holds, we might even see a rebound in the coming week. Head over to our Facebook page to read up more.

STI

STI also caved in on Friday as Singapore’s core inflation rises to 5.1% in August, inching towards 14-year high. Inflation is hitting countries hard and Singapore is not spared. We can see that STI broke the uptrend line on friday and a pullback to our second downside support of around 3190 might be seen in the coming weeks. Waiting for more pullback first.

HSI

HSI come down as expected and even broke the March low! Once again, looking ahead for Oct meeting before adding any position as market might drift a little lower and there is no real hurry to move in yet. We’re bullish on China/HK but looking for a better entry.

Do head over to our Facebook page for more updates on S&P500 and where it might head after the massive sell down. Updates for Nasdaq is also over there.

The Week Ahead Aug 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

21st August, 2022, 2:56 PM

After a month’s long rally, its about time for US markets to pullback. S&P500 indicators are currently in an overbought state and some pullback in the markets is expected and normal. GDP data for the US will be out this thursday  indicating if the economy is diving further into recession and could add further tension to the markets.

STI

STI saw a pullback as mentioned but has not gone down to our target yet so there might be more downside for the STI in the coming week. Banks are pulling back which will cause the index to pullback too. But despite some weakness, we saw tourism related stocks doing well for the last week before a pullback came. Looking for some short opportunity next week.

HSI

HSI hasn’t rebound last week as we expected but the rebound might be closing in as HSI looks to stabilize itself and build a base. The support of around 20k is holding and most tech companies have reported their results. Tencent despite missing estimates and its first time for revenue declining managed to still see its stock price move up. Alibaba is also holding up well and we might see some rebound coming soon too. Our upside rebound target for HSI is at 21262.

Head over to our Facebook for more updates on the US markets.

The Week Ahead Aug 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

31st July, 2022, 9:49 PM

A BIG week went by and it yield a positive result for us. Fed increased rates by 0.75%, GDP shrank for the second month in the US and big tech results mostly came under estimates  BUT despite these challenges the S&P500 closed up for the week. Data is important but remember to watch the price action to see if its showing weakness. Despite all the data that came out, one might have expected markets to continue to come down but it did the total opposite which shows strength. This rebound does look like it has a bit more room to go before it hits the critical resistance of 4200 for the S&P 500.

HSI

Still no bullish sign for HSI as it continues it downwards move towards our 20k support.  We’re still waiting for more bullish signals to come out before any short term trades to be executed. There has been a string of negative news for HSI recently hence the pullback. The property scene in HK is not stable yet with property counters still not out of the woods. The next possible downside target might be 19200. Keeping watch.

STI

STI did much better than its peers in the region and outperforming the HSI for this week. It has reached our target upside resistance of around 3249 and pulled back ever since then. Banks led the way but gave up its gain on Friday as traders took profit after a good week. Counters like yzj shipbldg and First Resources also a nice upside leading it to hit our targets this week. Once a healthy pullback is done we might see STI moving back up to 3297 region. Be fast and nimble under such market condition.

Head over to our Facebook for more updates on the S&P500 and Nasdaq which has both shown strength through the week.

The Week Ahead July 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

24th July, 2022, 2:55 PM


For the past week, US markets had a rather good rebound with the S&P 500 breaking above its 50ema which is a rare move.

Its going to be a BIG week with many lots happening. Firstly, we’ve got interest rate decision by the Federal Reserve. Their meeting will take place over Tuesday and Wedensday US timing so interest rates results will be out on Thursday morning (2am) Singapore time. Market is looking at a 0.75% increase although 1% might be on the table given the higher than expected inflation data.

Secondly, we’ve got US GDP data coming out on Thursday night Singapore timing. The data could tell us if USA has gone into a recession which is typically marked by two declining quarters. If the US is in a recession, it might spark off another round of selling.

Thirdly, we’ve got big tech companies reporting their results too. Meta, Apple, Amazon are just some that will be reporting this week. Look over here to see when your company will be reporting. Do take note that if you’re TRADING over results it can be dangerous as any disappointment in the results could result in a heavy sell down like SNAP.

Its going to be a rather volatile week so do stay alert!

HSI

HSI pulled back to our support and for long term investors this presents a good opportunity ahead. As for the week ahead, with all the big data that is to come we would be cautious in the short term as we might see increase in volatility. Currently HSI is trying to form a base at around the 20k mark. Only with a break above our short term downtrend then HSI might continue its reversal. For now we are just watching for that break. Tech stocks in HK are also presenting a good opportunity for long term entry.

STI

STI showed surprise strength during the week and even managing to breakout of its 50ema. Banks mainly gave strength to the index but is facing near term headwinds at the downtrend line. Our next upside resistance is around 3249 area which will probably have some significant resistance.  Looking out for stocks that pullback like Sembcorp Industries. First Resources is also trying to find a base and is currently on our watch list.

Head over to our Facebook for more updates on the S&P500 and Nasdaq which has both shown strength through the week.

The Week Ahead July 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

17th July, 2022, 3:30 PM

Did you see what happen last week? CPI numbers were out and it was higher than expected coming in at 9.1% which sent the market down at the start BUT actually recovered during the week. US markets did show some resilience and ended up for the week. This is not reversal yet but does show that markets are temporary ignoring these data. US earnings are are also coming out with JP Morgan having a lower quarter while Citibank beating results. Its too early to tell now but we will want to watch for more earnings before making any conclusion. For now we can see that S&P 500 and Nasdaq100 has strong resistance at the 50ema.

HSI

Weakness spotted in HSI which is a good thing if you’re a longer term investor and have missed the first wave for the Hang Seng. It is approaching our 20k downside target. Increase in Covid cases, growth rate slowing caused the downside in HK last week. For this week we continue to look for opportunity for long term holders to take a position as HSI is coming close to the 20k mark. We’ll watch for a base to form if not our next support would be 19300.

 

STI

STI couldn’t break the resistance we drew and came off after that . Immediate support at 3089. STI still looks weak and mainly guided by the banks. If banks start to break their support, we might see STI test the low of 3040. STI continues to be in a range and our local market has been lackluster and there hasn’t been much happening. Opportunity lies in HK and US for now so focusing more on those markets.

Its the end of the school holidays! We hope you had spend some quality and quantity time with your kids and family. It was an exciting week especially for the Hong Kong market which gained strength and saw very good gains overall. US also saw some positive action towards the end of the week with Nasdaq breaking out from its consolidation. Is the bull finally back? Read on to find out more.

Some things to note, market saw a pullback in commodity prices like oil, palm oil and coal stocks are starting to retreat too. This could give a short term relief rally for the markets but all eyes still on inflation data which will continue to lead the market. The 10 year yield has also retraced which continues to boost markets especially the Nasdaq.

HSI

A very nice rally for the hong kong market as it burst through its 5ema which we mentioned last week. Auto stocks saw a nice jump on govt stimulus which we also spoke about. Many stocks in Hong Kong are displaying strength in which we have seen for the last year and its good to have some focus on the Hong Kong market. As for the week, we are looking for more upside to around 22397 which is around the horizontal resistance. HKEX , Xiaomi are also looking good for next week. Remember once again if you’re trading or investing in HK markets as your approach to the market would be very different. As for investors, we have mentioned quite a few times to slowly average in due to our bullish view on it whereas for trading we’ll need a bullish momentum for it.

STI 

STI has also rebound off our support line which we drawn last week but the rebound we saw wasn’t anything strong as predicted. It came to the downtrend line and started hovering around it. For the week, we might see a move up towards 3146 area which is also around the 20ema. Wilmar is one stock we’re looking at with interest! Reits for investment has also shown strength through the week which we have informed our clients!

The week is shaping up to be a better one so be alert and make good use of it!

The Week Ahead June 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

19th June, 2022, 3:24 PM

Fed has raised rates by 0.75% on persistent inflation. Inflation wasn’t slowing down in June which left the fed to increase increase rates by 0.75%. Markets continue to look upon inflation numbers and if it doesn’t slow down then more rate hikes are going to be expected with the next one in July. An interesting thing that we’ve been mentioning is that despite US making new lows, the Hong Kong market which we’ve been covering extensively has actually been resilient. With good news flowing out of HK we continue to be bullish and believe in the recovery of that market.

HSI 

HSI has retraced to our short term uptrend line but is currently resisted at the 5ema. It has formed a higher low which is healthy in a larger reversal cycle. For long term holders, congrats as HSI is finally seeing some positive light with positive news flow coming out more and more. Even with the recent downside in US, HK has been holding up well with 20k a good support to continue to scale in. For this week, a break above the 5ema might signal more bullish signal and a test of 22k might be possible.

STI 

STI has hit some some around 3072 but a more significant support is around 3035 area. That is a still a chance that STI might hit that support before any sustained rebound that comes. Singapore markets is still trying to find its footing and there hasn’t been any sustained rally so far. STI might rally to that downtrend line of around 3120 before getting resisted. We’ll await more confirmation before making any moves.

The Week Ahead April 2022 – [STI, HSI, NASDAQ & S&P]

Yield curve inversion causing some pullback in the markets but is this pullback good enough? Will recession be hitting soon? Read our view on S&P 500 and the Nasdaq to find out more.

STI

STI has hit our upside resistance of 3454 and started to pullback. A healthy pullback is good as most of our stocks have hit their targets and traders are starting to complain prices being expensive. A pullback to the 20ema is not too much to ask for as we start scanning for stocks to re-entry again! Want to know what stock we’re looking at next?

Be our EXCLUSIVE CLIENT and be alerted earlier to not miss out!

HSI

HSI saw a  rebound to our resistance and with a bullish candle on friday plus good news with China considering letting the US check their audits. China ADRs probably might have some upside. A larger pullback is more helpful as this brings more confidence to trade the HK market. But if HSI manage to break that 22339 resistance we might see it move up to 23647, not the best of situation but as traders, we have to learn to go with the flow.

Have a good week ahead!
