Are You In A Maze In Your Investing Journey?

It is suspenseful and entertaining at the same time. Adapted from the best-selling Young Adult novel, basing on how the movie ended, sequels are to be expected (if this movie done well in the box office). The movie set me thinking : we, the retail investors are like the maze runners, we are continuously running around/within the giant maze of the virtual stock market with the hope to find an EXIT door that lead us to “Rome”. Some resourceful and knowledgeable ones might be able to make it while...

Singapore Stock Market – Is It The Start Of The Downward Trend?

Yesterday, Singapore’s STI down about 1% (33 points). As at this afternoon (16th Sep), STI down about 24 points and went below the 3,300 line to 3,287.65. Is it a sign of the beginning of the downward trend? Of course, no one know for sure but as per what I’ve answered one of the prominent blogger’s (Ah Tom) interview question, I foresee that Singapore’s stock market will be weak for the next few months (just my personal view). So, for those who have kept their war chest tightly under your pillow or multi-layered-secured safe, it might be time for them to see the light...
