China Growth and Regulatory Scare - China Market Could Be Heading Down Going Into The New Year



China could face a short term sell off  caused by China’s deleveraging campaign with the renewed squeeze of the shadow banking sector implemented following the Party Congress in October. It has caused the 10-year renminbi government bond yield rising to 3.93% on Wednesday. The aim is  to  squeeze out  shadowy loans and encourage more loan growth to the real economy. China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) recently suspended approval of new mutual funds that plan to allocate more than 80% of their portfolio to Hong Kong-listed equities. It could result in a short term cooling of South Bound fund inflows, further aggravating by the normal seasonal decline in A share trading volume in the run up to Chinese New Year in 16 February.
Indeed that growth scare has already begun, The Caixin/Markit manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index came in at 50.8 for last month — the lowest level in five months Economists in a Reuters poll had expected the index to read 50.9 for November, lower than 51.0 the previous month.

On 27 Nov, this blog predicted that the Shanghai A Index has peaked and is due for a sharp correction just from a technical perspective . Indeed the Shanghai Stock Exchange A Index (SSE A) underperforming the MSCI Asia Index and trading at a 5 month low. The SSE A index has broke its uptrend channel line, with immediate support at 3445 , its is likely to trend lower in the near term towards 3355 and it will drag the Hang Seng lower.

Santa Claus Rally or Year End Meltdown?

The traditional year end buying could mean that the "Santa Claus Rally" is still on the cards.

However, the selling pressure of late for technology stocks may continue, as after taking a closer look at the Republican tax bill, tech companies could be hit harder by the corporate Alternate Minimum Tax (AMT). This measure was removed from the House tax rule, but included in the Senate bill, and it must be resolved before the overall plan is passed.

A lot of stocks could be dumped in late December in order to be taxed under the old rules if the House bill keeps these penalties in place.

Tuan Sing - Strong FA but TA Points To a Correction


Tuan Sing - UOB Kay Hian initiated a  "Buy" recommendation yesterday with a target price of 0.71 representing a upside target of more tan 70%. The report cited the potential of its huge $2.3 billion property portfolio in Spore and Australia bought a fire sales price and it is trading at 61.2%discount to RNAV and 52% of its book value. The fundamental reasons to buy this stock looks compelling and many investors jumped in  to buy in  the last 2 days as   evident in the massive volume traded which was the highest 2 days volume in the last 3 years. 
The Price Action, however suggest that this stock could have peaked in the short term and is likely to correct to 0.43 before it could attempt higher prices. 
If the 0.43 level is breached the stock could head south towards 0.36 which will present and excellent opportunity for traders to buy for a good rebound.

Best World - Weakness Before 3Q results tomorrow. Buying opportunity or an "Ominous"Sign?

Best World - . In August this stock survived a China Goverment crackdown on "Pyramid Scheme" . After plunging from 1.64 to 0.95, its has since recovered to 1.50. Today, it fell ahead of 3Q results on 8 Nov due after trading hour.  Is this another "Flushed"  the  BB is using to collect more stock for a good set of results or  an " Ominous" sign of bad news in the making?
Well, from the price action today things certain don't look promising with selling persisting throughout  the day on significantly high volume of 9m shares . This weakness came on a bullish backdrop with STI gaining nearly 1%. From the charts , it close below its strong support of 1.42 and could head towards its next stop at 1.30 and 1.25. If the results is significantly below expectation 1.10  is on the cards.
A spillover of the China's campaign on  illegal pyramid schemes and high Capex  cost from building new manufacturing plants could cause a drag to its revenue.

Second Chance - Most volume traded since 2012! Something Brewing?

Second Chance - Something brewing? Today we witnessed the most heavily traded day in this stock since 2012. 2nd Chance  owns 17 retail shops  City Paza , with Enbloc fever now raging, could City Plaza be next on the block? As the site is very close to Paya Lebar MRT , it is an attractive target for developer. It all depends on whether City Development which owns 30% of  the total value of City Plaza  agrees to the idea. On the chart ,the first resistance at 0.28 which was touched today, the 2nd resistance is at 0.30 followed by 0.33.  Interesting this stock has a warrant which closed  today at 0.15. The exercise price of the warrant is at 0.25 which is "Ìn The Money". If this stock goes to 0.305, the warrant could double in price. What's the game plan of the BB ? This blog will be watching this stock, stay tuned!

Alliance Mineral - Broke Out of its Downtrend for the first time since April

Alliance Mineral - This stock  was trader's favourite when it rose from 0.10 to 0.43 in Apr , it went into a tailspin when the debt problem between the CEO and Jonathan Lim surfaced. This debt problem will soon blow over and trader's will soon refocus on the fundamentals of the company. Next month the company is expected to  announce the resource upgrade of Ball Hill which could see the extension of the life of the mine which will warrant an upgrade. China  move  towards faster adoption of Electric Vechicle  targets will increased the demand for lithium dramatically augurs well for the company.
On the charts, the stock has broke out of its downtrend and for the first time moved above the 50 days MA. This is a signal of a short term reversal that could take the stock higher.
A strong support has been estabilised at 0.255, the next resistance is 0.315 and 0.34 respectively.

US markets celebrates new high but No Joy In STI

US Markets celebrates  new highs but no joy with STI. This week new highs in US markets have been met with a bearish divergence in the STI. In the regional markets STI and the ASX200 display the weakest technical profile. STI has broke below the 50 days MA as well as the lower boundary of the uptrend channel. The uptrend in STI that we saw since Dec 2016 is now in doubt and a break below 3200 will open the door to a downside target of 3150 and 3110 respectively. At the meantime, STI is expected  trade within the 3210 , 3225 and 3245 range. This blog will turn bullish on STI only when it breaks above 3250.

GL Ltd - Turning Around After 4 Years Downtrend

GL Ltd. (Guocoleisure) - Could finally be turning around after a 4 years downtrend on worries of Brexit, weak Pound and depressed oil sector. In May 2014 , this stock went to a high of 1.20 on privitisation rumours.  With Brexit near settlement, oil sector bottoming out and the Pound recent spectacular recovery, it stock could be beginning to turn around. The charts is showing huge accumulation at 0.72 levels, at 0.76 today it has climbed to stay above the 50 days MA and broke above its downtrend channel, which potentially points to  an upside target of 0.82 and 0.92 respectively.

Where is the stock market heading? Watch the Dollar!

Where is the market headed? Watch the Dollar!

Global Markets rally remains a counter dollar rally. The Dollar Index briefly broke its 3 years low  (91.8)  touching 91.01 before rebounding to trade above. The dollar weakness reflects the faltering confidence of Trump's ability to deliver tax reform. The US house speaker Paul Ryan has announced that the reform tax outline will be announced on the week on 25th Sept. If investors renew their believe  that  the reform tax  can make America Great again, it will be the best chance for a Dollar rally. A Dollar resurgence will be detrimental to the market. A break above 93 in the dollar index could trigger a huge technical rebound on the upside to 97.5.  Watch the week of 25th Sept!
