Singapore Market Updates 30 March 2016

STI up strongly today by 1.91% close 54 point higher at 2873, this is following the positive us market. The bullish sentiment in singapore is cause by mainly 2 reason, Firstly, the Yellen Speech last night indicate that Fed will have a slow approach on Rate hike policy,Secondly Regional market is mostly up today with HangSeng up 2.15% and Shanghai composite index up 2.77%.

Federal Reserve keep interest rate unchanged, market react positive?
Market already expect rate remain unchanged in march, before fed meeting, most market already moved hence the decision of Fed meeting does not have much impact on the market, however the news that Fed's rate 2 rate hike this year(instead of 4 hike) was really a pleasant surprise to investors. As bluechip stock is now on the high side, the good news did not push the market into a new high, I think market is pretty cautious right now as dow jones is near its 18000 resistance

One of the sector I am looking at is the commodities, we have seen that the gold has been one of the biggest winner in since beginning of 2016, for the past 5 week, it have been falling and yesterday after yellen's speach the price start to move higher. Hence i think the gold etf is one of the  asset to diversify your portfolio. More over, on the Gold chart,  it shows a golden cross. Seems like it is a sign that gold could be going on a bull run... again.

Singapore & Global Market Updates 21 March 2016

US market Near resistance
DJI  -18000-18300, S&P500 2080, Nasdaq 5080-5250
Since 2015, we have not seen Dow jone index break above 18300, this has become a very strong resistance, where trader fear. So most will sell when  DJI is near this level to play safe.

This Friday is holiday for most market, we shall see lower trading volume towards the weekend.

SSE bullish turn around, above 2640 Support level, Hangseng above 18300 Support level, as long as it can stay above the support level, it is good.

Singapore market as mentioned 2 weeks ago, blue chip stock going to take profit as market is currently in an overbought position. In my previous post, I mention that the market has reach a oversold position and hitting a strong support at 2550

Previous post ==>STI Market Updates - Whats next after Big selldown (Febuary 10 2016)

Singapore market usually wont go up in a straight line, we will see profit taking, and some sell down to test the support and confidence level of investor. If support and confidence level is strong, then we are ready to make a higher high for STI

US market get a booster last week after Fed meeting, Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen announced new projections that indicate the number of interest rate hikes would be cut from four to two this year

You should watch China Market now - SSE break resistance last friday, now is at 3 month high - above 2950 is bullish.
A slower pace of US interest rate hikes is an advantage for the sluggish Chinese economy as it slow down the RMB depreciation.

Weaker USD will encourage investor to put money in commodities and properties sector.
one of the Key factor for the recovery of China economy is is Real estate sector, as it accounts for more than 15 percent of the gross domestic product(GDP) which also affects 40 other sectors.

Market View: Will Federal Reserve increase Interest Rate in March?

STI was up 45 points closing at 2727 following the strong closing in US market,  Dow jones index closed 2.11% higher, with oil price hitting 2 month high above $34 as oil producing countries agreed to freeze the oil production.

The regionwide rally in asia was also led by Shanghai index with a 4.26 per cent gain, after the central bank said it has further cut its reserve requirement ratio to Stimulate the slowing down economy. 

This Friday we are watching the non farm payroll, as the non farm pay roll is reflecting the unemployment rate and the status of the US economy. If the Non farm payroll shows a good result, the Federal Reserve may go ahead with the increase in interest rate this month. 

As fed had mentioned that they will increase interest rate 4 times this year, March is likely to be one of them. 

Stock market has crashed after the December rate hike. 

Many investor is betting that Fed will not increase the interest rate in March base on the Job data, as the Market is already Suffering. (Logically.)

 If there is no rate hike, one of the sector that will benefit will be the Reits sector, due to the uncertainty in the stock market investor will go back to yield play if the interest rate hike's fear subside. SuntecReit and FraserCentrepoint Trust, both of them pay more than 5% dividend and their price has recently crossed the long term 200days moving average, this is a indication for me be bullish on the mid to long term trend.

Billionaire Fund - John Paulson's Bet on Healthcare Stock

Can you beat the Billionaire Fund Manager John Paulson in performance?

Best known for pulling off one of the greatest trades in the history of the markets when he shorted subprime mortgages during the 2007 housing bubble, John Paulson has amassed a portfolio of nearly $20 billion. That remarkable trade earned him and his investors more than $15 billion 
- Investopedia

Looking through the stock price with ART Position System, I realised that we can actually do better. What you have to do is to Sell when the price is going downtrending. and Hold when it is going Uptrend. By Staying out on the Downtrend, you not get hit badly like Mr John Paulson on his Valeant Phamaceutical, which is down 70%.

As per his latest 13F filing of Dec 31, Paulson has reduced his stake in Allergan - AGN by about 20$ during the last 3 month of the year but Allergan still remain as his top Position with 10.6% allocation in his public equity portfolio.

It currently holds the No. 4 position at 7.24%. Paulson began accumulating shares of Shire in 2012 and has been gradually adding and decreasing his position since then. In 2014, Paulson increased his position to 9 million shares in anticipation of an acquisition offer by AnnVie, another pharmaceutical company.

Following his most recent purchase in September 2015, which raised his share total to 8.89 million, the company was subpoenaed by Congress seeking details on its patient-assistance programs, drug pricing and distribution practices. At the center of the controversy was Valeant's excess price increases of two of its heart drugs. That was followed by a report accusing Valeant of fraudulent accounting practices. Valeant's share price, which had hit an all-time high of $257 in September 2015, has fallen nearly 70%.
