Familiar with the NDP theme song the road ahead by now?  Such a hit and very relatable as Sinagporeans navigate through the road ahead with courage and determination.

So what’s the road ahead like for our Straits Times Index? Is is choppy? Or is it a smooth ride ahead?  Well, lets take a look at the chart to get some idea. From a technical analysis perspective, STI is currently sitting on its horizontal support of around 3080 level. This coincides with the support of around March but if this support doesn’t hold we might see a further leg down to 3050 and if weakness persist, 3020 is the area of the previous gap cover. 3020 would be a key support for us but we’re hoping it doesn’t go there.  For the upside, STI has to break our downtrend line first as a first sign of strength and also the 5ema of around 3100. That would signal strength and as Fed gets the market ready for its bond tapering this year, we are keeping track to see how other market reacts as the sentiments will flow over to Asia. Some upside resistance might be around 3120 then 3160 and 3200.

The road ahead might not be easy but with an extra pair of eyes, the journey need not be so arduous.

Straits Times Index – [ Pulling Back, Downside Targets Updates! ]

Straits Times Index – [ Pulling Back, Downside Targets Updates! ]

Chart Source: Poemsview 21st April 2021

Since our last blog post just a week over ago, we started seeing the Straits Times Index slowly peeling away. It had actually tried to break above our breakout level but failed to do so and got slammed down instead. With such a move down, we might see it move lower to the  uptrend line  of around 3120 also around the 50ema, Banks are the usual suspect as they take up a bigger weightage in the STI component.

The next few support might be around 3060 at the gap support and if that fails to hold STI might cover the gap to 3020. If we do reach that level some bargain hunting might be good. A pullback to 3020 represents about 6% from the high of 3221 which is actually healthy. So don’t be surprised if STI does pullback to that level. Don’t get too used to just seeing the ups and know that market moves up and down.

So trade with care and always have a trade plan and know your time frame. Traders might have been caught with this pullback and might end up picking up shares and being a mid term investor. So ensure you are discipline when it comes to trading or investing.

The Straits Times Index (STI) finished Q1 2021 with about 11% gain and its the strongest first quarter of calendar year since 2012. Best of all, our Straits Times Index which was the worst performing index in Asia last year have actually came in as the second best performer amongst the 18 global stocks index! WE got a fighting spirit eh!

The key driver for STI’s performance was mainly due to the banks which takes up about 40% of our STI.

From a technical analysis point of view our STI actually closed below the 5ema which it has been closing above for the past few weeks. Well, its not panic mode for us but this might signal some pullback that is to come in the next few days or so. A healthy pullback is also welcomed as investors now complain everything being overvalued or expensive.

Some healthy levels to pullback to might be the 20ema or even that uptrend line of around 3119. If STI manages to punch above the 5ema again and break out of the current 3220 zone then it might signal the continuation of the uptrend.

Straits Times Index currently having a pullback from a high 3017 which might have come as a surprise for some but we’re thankful that our EXCLUSIVE CLIENTS were warned of this pullback last week. STI had moved up over 5% since the start of Jan and along with other  markets it looked tired and was tough to push higher. True enough some pullback came which is healthy in our view.

We have drawn some support levels for the STI with the 50ema of around 2866 being our major support. Support levels might present chance to scale in for long term stocks.

Our Straits Times Index (STI) had an impressive run for the month of Nov up close to 20%! It is probably one of the most amazing month for our index in a long while. But as the saying goes, what goes up, must come down!

With such a steep upside we suspected a pullback would be on the cards very soon. So we sent a message warning our clients of a pullback and sharing our thoughts. We also attached a chart so that they’ll understanding it better.

The Straits Times Index saw a massive profit today after such a huge run up. The initial support at the 5ema gave way and the the downside started coming in. This took the index down over 2% to about the 10ema of about 2810. We’re glad we alerted our clients last week of a potential downside. A pullback like this is considered healthy to us if the market wants to sustain its upside move.

So what’s next for our index? Let’s see the charts and from it we might continue seeing some selling pressure if STI can’t stay above this 10ema support and might see it move down to even test the 20ema.

Be alert!

Straits Times Index has broken out of its midterm downtrend line and also has broke above its 20ema.

From technical analysis point of view, these are some promising cues which might have more upside potential. What we’re looking at is for the Straits Times Index to close above this 20ema and stay above it for the next few days. That could possibly be a bullish signal for the markets. Take a look at our Riverstone post and what happens when it crosses the 20ema.

If we see our three local banks, OCBC and UOB are currently above the 20ema while DBS is still under. Do keep a watch for it as we previously posted on it too.

We have drawn some potential support and resistance should STI be able to stay above the 20ema. Let’s hope we can see 2546 first in the coming weeks.

Its close to 4pm now and the Straits Times Index is down over 50 points due to China tightening its grip on HK.

Hong Kong index is down over 1000 points or 5%, something which we haven’t seen in awhile. Due to the regional unrest, our Straits Times Index or STI also is affected . We’re down about 2% at the time of writing.

So what’s our game plan? If you noticed we’ve been rather bearish on the markets and continue to remain so until we see more convincing signs of rebound. With every rebound in the STI it seems to be making a Lower High despite US side having massive gains. This to us shows some weakness. STI is currently on its horizontal support of around 2500.

What could happen from here? Some possible scenarios:

  1. STI could have a rebound to cover the gap and test the downtrend again. Failure to break that might see more downside. If STI manages to break that downtrend line then our stand might change.
  2. STI could break the horizontal support level and might take us to around 2387 levels.
  3. STI could possibly hover around here and form a sideways consolidation before another move comes.

So stay alert! We’re eyeing more downside as you can see STI is below the moving averages but are flexible to react as market remains volatile and remembering the saying, Don’t Fight The Feds!

Straits Times Index – [ Has It Peaked? More Room For Upside?? ]

Straits Times Index – [ Has It Peaked? More Room For Upside?? ]Straits Times Index 19th April 2020

Straits  Times Index or STI had a very good  rebound which caught many off guard. The rebound was about 20% from the low which was slightly stronger than expected. The question is can STI move up more? Is there still room to go for STI?

Before we dive  further, we’ll bring in the chart of S&P as markets still takes some reference from big brother USA.

Using the weekly chart for S&P, we feel that there might be just be more room for an upside probably to the 50ema which is around 2960 level for S&P, if it does reach around there , we have to be very very careful already. That would mean that S&P would have rebound 35% off the low which is considered a lot. But that said, we are in extraordinary times and such a bounce is also an extraordinary bounce.

So if S&P still has some upside, we might see STI slowly trying to aim for its 50ema too which is around 2720 and also the fibo 50% retracement level.  If STI can rally to around that area, we’ll be looking for SHORT opportunities. The risk reward for longs now is not very favourable (in our view) so we’ll probably be patiently looking for short opportunities instead.

Looking for Short opportunities but not sure how to go about doing it? Not sure how to short or not sure what instrument to use for for shorting? Want to learn how to use CFD (Contract for difference) to short the market?

Don’t be shy and just drop us a message and we’ll be glad to answer them!

What a week right? A rough week would probably be an understatement! Oil crashed, Dow crashed, Yield crash, limit down, limit up and there is still no sign of Covid-19 letting up.

But hold steady and lets have faith that we’ll get through this together. By now, we’re sure Covid-19 is no stranger to the world. Its been grabbing headlines for all the wrong reason and markets are plunging due to fear of how this virus will impact the economy. We’ll still continue to look at our charts to find some clues on when the selling might subside or when a technical rebound might come.

For our STI, we have drawn some support and resistance levels and will be using it as a guide to try to navigate through this crazy times. The first support we see is at around 2510 level, the low of 2016. It had some rebound from there on friday and a good rebound might see STI to close to 2700. We’ll take things step by step for now and after 2700 then 2750 area. The support for us is at 2510 then 2415.  No one can tell when the market will bottom or where the top is therefore its important to have the right mentality when investing or trading.

Don’t fish for the bottom but plan your investment in batches.

Take care when trading and its always good to have an extra pair of eyes to look out for especially during this period.

Straits Times Index – [ Following Up After First Target Met] Straits Times Index 22nd Oct 2019

Chart Source: Poemsview 22nd Oct 2019

Straits Times Index saw a break away from its consolidation zone over the last week hitting our first resistance target of 3154 which we drew back on 13 Oct.

From our explanation in our previous post,  the Straits Times Index broke above our downtrend line we drew, it also broke above its 20ema which are positive signs for us.

Some possible scenarios for now, STI might cover the gap it created this morning and might continue its march up. It could also test today’s high again and a success break might see it move to 3188 area.

A break below the 20ema might cancel our upside view.

We hope our readers managed to learn and capitalize on our explanation on our trading blog!

Lets Watch it!
