Hello everyone!

Here’s this week’s webinar from Collin.

He was talking about selecting best swing stocks and some updates about the US and Singapore stock markets.

 

Below we also follow up on our ComfortDelGro trade which we closed off at a decent profit.

And also I’d like to share what the TradersGPS indicated to us on one of our major blue chip counters!

Good trade guys!

ComfortDelGro great trade!

CItydev

The TradersGPS has been indicating shorts on the TradersGPS since the middle of May.

So even if you didn’t manage to catch this trade short, at least you would not be holding on to this counter from $12.30 until it made a recent low of $9.22!

Trump meets Kim
This epic event took place here on our sunny shores, at a reported cost of SGD20 million.

Few held any high expectations for the outcome of this Trump meets Kim event.

Even fewer could have guessed that the two nations would be signing an agreement right there and then.

The key points from their agreement are:

  • US and North Korea commit to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
  • The two countries will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
  • Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, North Korea commits to work towards the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
  • US and North Korea commit to recovering remains of prisoners of war including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

You can read more at this link here.

Let’s hope this is truly the start of the peace process for the Korean Peninsula.

There was some volatility in the USD today as the two leaders met, but overall our markets didn’t react much to the new developments.

Our markets are still stuck in that range it’s been in all of this year.

If you’d like to know how to position yourself in this trading environment,

Click here to discover how we do it.

 

STI

Currently it’s hovering around the 3450 level.

No clear trend on the broad market still.

Don’t be too aggressive with your portfolio.

STI still hovering in the 3450 zone

STI still hovering in the 3450 zone

 

ComfortDelGro

With an average entry price of $2.18,  we have seen gains of 15% since average our entry.

Now we just need to monitor the trailing stops to protect profits while riding the trend.

This is usually the easy part of the trade, where we just need to manage the trade.

Until price tells us to get out, we don’t need to do anything.

Be patient and follow system.

ComfortDelGro still moving nicely, be patient and follow system.

SIA

No signal since we started watching this.

Be patient and wait for a valid signal.

avoiding losses

 

The majority of talk about trading is always centered around how to make profits.

Because every body wants to see their account balance grow right?

But there’s one very important factor which might get drowned out by all the shouting about generating profits.

Growing your account balance is also about how to keep the profits you’ve made, by not losing it back to the market!

In trading, that means reducing losses, like by avoiding the bad trades.

The rules in a good system will enable you to filter out those bad trading setups.

Just like how the TradersGPS did for us in a couple of counters listed below.

If you’d like to know how to filter out the bad trades,

Click here to find out how we do it.

 

STI

Seems like we have a rejection from the highs for now.

Let’s see if the 3400-3450 area will hold us up.

 

ComfortDelGro

$2.39 resistance

With an average entry of about $2.18, we’re up a little over 10% on a full size.

Can take a bit of profit off around this level.

As indicated in the previous post, it’s the first resistance area.

Otherwise, just sit tight and be patient.

Also can tighten up stoplosses to about $2.31

ComfortDelGro still going strong.

ComfortDelGro still going strong.

 

SIA

There’s been a slight upward drift eversince last year.

We seem to be breaking 3 year highs.

We have our first valid signal, leading to the break of those 3 year highs.

2 attempts later, we are back under those 3 year highs.

Price is currently back under the first signal’s trigger level.

While it’s tempting to enter now, wait for the next valid signal to enter SIA.

Worth paying attention to.

SIA is worth paying attention to.

SIA is worth paying attention to.

 

Hyflux

This is the first of the bad trades which TradersGPS managed to steer us clear away from.

Hyflux used to be a darling blue chip company.

But the price charts turned sour, a long time before it lost its darling status.

Recently, this counter has made some very steep drops since November 2017.

TradersGPS picked up on it and signaled shorts since the start.

This keeps all long term investors, out of his counter and safe from the huge drops.

Even on Hyflux’s 6% perpetual securities which are publicly traded, the TradersGPS has indicated not to buy and can keep you safe from potential default.

Hyflux chart gave clues not to buy.

Hyflux chart gave clues not to buy.

 

Ezion

Another popular counter which has fallen from favour.

It halted trading in late 2017 and only resumed again recently in mid-April 2018.

Imagine if you had been invested in this counter back in 2017, how much do you wish you could have avoided investing in this stock right?

TradersGPS picked up on Ezion’s downtrend early 2017 and gave clear signals to us NOT to buy this counter.

Ezion halted for a long time...

I just wanted to show an interesting level on this counter.

If we clear the $2.80, we could start to see a new trend upwards.

However, this would be pining for a reversal, so we need to observe the TradersGPS for valid signals.

US missile strike on Syria

Syria’s been in civil war for 7 years now.

The recent US missile strike on Syria has done little to change the status quo… or has it?

On the surface, it appears that the missile strike was more for the US president to make a point to the international community, than to actually help Syria in any way.

However, some note that the continued US presence in parts of Syria have provided stability and support at rebuilding.

The missile strike seems to indicate a continued interest in Syria by the US.

A major benefit of US presence in certain parts, also prevented the government, Russia and Iran from returning to those areas and regressing the regions back to a state of chaos struggling amidst the civil war.

STI

Price is testing the recent highs.

Broad trend is up, however we’ve yet to see if the STI can continue higher from here.

This recent range is very wide, we have not yet broken out of it, so trade safe, we could still drop back down to the 3450 level again easily.

STI is still in this wide range

STI is still in this wide range

 

Wheelock

On the day that we got triggered in, the candles turned blue, so we exit at a $0.30 loss.

As warned in the previous post, this isn’t an ideal setup, but we saw some downside potential that was worth the risk.

Wheelock wasn't an ideal setup, but good trade!

Wheelock wasn’t an ideal setup, but good trade!

 

ComfortDelGro

Price did cross $2.18 a day after we identified this opportunity.

So we are certainly happy with our trigger long at $2.12

A second arrow as appeared last week and we’re waiting for another trigger to take us into our second entry for this counter.

ComfortDelGro clears $2.18 so we're looking for second entry trigger

YZJ

We’re looking at swing short on this counter.

As mentioned a few posts back, this is a volatile counter.

So we’re still in at 1.19 short.

Trump volatility

 

Recently we have witness a fair amount of volatility caused by the trade tariff issue between US and China.

Just when Xi Jinping manages to quell the flames, Russia steps into the picture.

Russia vowed to shoot down any missiles fired at Syria, which prompted the usual head on response from Trump, declaring that missiles would indeed be coming to Syria.

Volatile times in the market, be safe.

STI

Did a good bounce off 3340, as mentioned, we’re in a range here for now.

STI still in a range

UOB

No long trigger, gapped down and then the candles turned red.

So we don’t want to long this anymore.

UOB no longer on the radar for longs

UOB no longer on the radar for longs

 

Wheelock

Finally get our first valid signal, and ti triggers today at $1.80

We need to be aware that this type of chart is typically not so ideal, because price doesn’t swing very smoothly.

However the big picture looks alright with some downside potential.

Wheelock triggers a short

Hi-P

No more long signals and candles turned red instead.

So we’ll have to put this aside for the moment.

It will be interesting if it turns up again from here.

Hi-P will be interesting if we get long setups off this area later on.

Hi-P will be interesting if we get long setups off this area later on.

 

ComfortDelGro

Looks like it’s trying to move higher off this base.

Will be better if we can see it clear $2.18

Recent news of Grab buying over Uber could be a catalyst for something to happen in ComfortDelGro.

ComfortDelGro looks interesting above $2.18

ComfortDelGro looks interesting above $2.18

 

YZJ

Looking at this for a swing short with the swing trading strategy.

It’s in a clear downtrend.

Looking for price to break below previous day candle’s low.

Last night, the FED raised the US interest rates by 25 basis points to 1.75% from 1.50%.

Typically we would see the USD strengthen after such a rate hike.

However, since lifting off from 0% interest rates in the recent couple of years, the USD weakened with each of the rate hikes.

Since the start of 2017, the USDSGD exchange rate has fallen from 1.45 to under 1.31 recently.

Today, we are going to share with you how to grow your CPF investment money in a no-brainer way.

The best part?

You need not be financial savvy to do this. A beginner can do it!

And I’ll reveal the exact step-by-step process, which you can follow easily.

What is CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS)?

It is to provide option to CPF members to invest their CPF savings in various instruments such as insurance products, unit trusts, fixed deposits, bonds and shares.

The Average CPF Interest Rate is 2.5% to 4% for Ordinary Account. Check their latest interest rate here. Below is the latest CPF rate.

CPF Interest Rate 1st April to 30th June 2018

CPF Investment Infographic

Share this Infographic On Your Site

Who can invest?

– 18 years old or older,
– are not an undischarged bankrupt
– have more than $20,000 in your OA; and/or
– have more than $40,000 in your SA

How much of your CPF can you invest?

– After setting aside $20,000 in Ordinary Account (OA), you can invest up to 35% in stocks and up to 10% in gold. AND/OR
– After setting aside $40,000 in Special Account (SA), you can invest up to 35% in stocks and up to 10% in gold.

What can you Invest in using Your CPF?

Here’s the link to the list of investments you can invest in. We will be using ETF as our recommended investment tool. The other tools are either too risky or you have to pay high commission.

Find out your CPF Account Statement

  1. Go to https://www.cpf.gov.sg/, and sign in with your Singpass ID and password.
  2. Enter the 6-digit One-Time Password (OTP) sent to your mobile number that’s registered with CPF.
  3. Click “My Statement”.
  4. Scroll down to “Section C”. This is the part where CPF computes the latest amount you can invest using CPF Investment Scheme.

How to Start Investing Using Your CPF?

Below are the steps to go about starting your CPF investment;

First, you need to set up a CPF investment account with one of the local banks below, I listed their rates with links for your reference too;

Bank Charges For Trading of CPF Approved Stocks

  1. DBS Bank Ltd (DBS), (DBS rates)
  2. Overseas-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd (OCBC) (OCBC rates)
  3. United Overseas Bank Ltd (UOB) (UOB rates)

When you invest on your own, you pay the broker their commission at much lesser range from SGD2 to SGD25 per transaction depending on the platform you are using. And there will be a quarterly bank charges of $2 per counter for holding to the stock(s)/counter(s).

If you have difficulties in setting up the CPF investment with the 3 banks, it will be best to visit their head branch. Below are their addresses;

– DBS Head Branch Address: 12 Marina Boulevard, Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3, Level 3, S(018982)
– OCBC Head Branch Address: Raffles City Shopping Centre , 252 North Bridge Road B1-08, S(179103)
– UOB Head Branch Address: 80 Raffles Place UOB Plaza 1, S(048624)

Things to bring along: NRIC or passport.

Reasons why you need to invest on your own in your CPF?

Since the CPF money can only be use after 55 years of age, we recommend that you grow it before you reach 55.

We also recommend NOT TO USE third party like insurance companies to invest your CPF. Even when the sales charges will decrease and eventually goes to zero in 1st October 2019.

Because the percentage of commission pay to these companies and agents can go from 10% to 50% in the first year. So in theory, you are only using 50% to 90% of your intended investment! Making it an instant loss when you purchase them. That is why they always say you need a certain number of years to see that the policy is breakeven.

Straits times shared that 40% of those who used CPFIS made losses, only 15% made profits larger than 2.5%. Read more here. The 3 main reasons for the low ROI is due to;

  1. High Fees in Financial Products (One of the main culprits, which I shared above.)
  2. Switching Financial Portfolio Too Often.
  3. Not Being Updated or Lack of Concerns on their CPF Investments.

Read more on “Don’t buy Endowment Policy Plan“.

Here goes the reasons…

Reason #1: Using your CPF Money to Buy Home.

Most Singaporeans will use their CPF money to purchase new home. So it makes sense, once you have more than $20,000 in your normal CPF account, you should start investing early so you can put a comfortable downpayment for your new home.

Fact: You will need to return the CPF amount you used to purchase the home when you sell it, plus the interest! CPF Monies UsedSource from HDB.gov.sg

Reason #2: Use CPF for retirement in the future.

I know this is a lousy idea, but there’s not much one can do until you are 55 years of age. So might as well grow as much as possible and as early as possible. So that once you reach 55, you will have a monthly comfortable amount to draw out.

How to grow your CPF Account?

Instead of gaining the yearly CPF interest of 3.5% to 5%, why not use it to invest in assets that have higher percentage of returns that’s better than what the CPF interest is offering?

Here how….

We have found out that the past 30 years our STI index are in a general uptrend since 1987, and has a consistent yearly growth with dividend payout of about 9.5%.

I would recommend using ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) to invest into STI index. You can do it monthly or yearly. This is a dollar cost averaging strategy, and it requires to be long term. That means 10 years or more to see the compounding effect.

Since most would want to focus on their job or business, this is a great passive way to grow your CPF money. Below are the list of companies in the STI Index as of 21st March 2018.

STI Index Constituent Companies (Updated 21st Mar 2018)

So in theory, if you were to use $5,000 from your CPF every year to invest in STI index (at 9.5%) using ETF for 30 years, you would end up with $825,539 at the end of 30 years. See below.

Compound Interest Calculator for CyrusTaken from https://www.moneysmart.gov.au.

You can see that the total deposit that you would have invested is $150,000, yet your total interest earned is $669,539.

Xylem is a US counter which one of our students traded.

Just an example of the very persistent trends we can find on the US markets.

Those who don’t follow the trend and think it has gone too high, are really paying the price!

A quote from John Maynard Keynes goes something like this: “The markets can stay irrational, longer than you can stay solvent.”

In case you’re wondering, he’s the reason we study Keynesian economics at school.

So with that in mind, we’re looking for more opportunities in the market for continuation of the uptrend.

There’s also a juicy setup on our local market which looks good, but I have my reservations, take a look below.

STI

We’re testing the upper areas of the current range.

No confirmed change of trend, but observe the US markets as we are closely following them right now.

 

UOB

Stronger than the broad market index as it makes new highs today.

Triggers an entry from 28.83

UOB marches on upwards

Wheelock

As a hedge of our portfolio, we are looking for shorts on this counter.

There is good potential downside to the 1.71 1.64 and 1.53 levels.

Wheelock looks good for a move lower

YZJ

The setup here looks good for a short.

However, we can see historically that YZJ is a more volatile counter.

It tends to whip us out of the sustained trends during retracements.

So we would pass on this setup unless you’re ready to handle the volatility.

YZJ has a juicy setup but...

Xylem

This stock has seen a magnificent trend higher since almost a year ago.

Xylem a huge American water technology provider.

The trend started under $50 and now it’s up just under $80!

The trend has been amazing, with our valid signals coming in just about the $50 mark.

As you all know by now, we can’t catch the tops and bottoms, but we’ll be sure to catch the meat in the middle.

You can read more about them on their site here.
