24082015: No longer blue Monday but Black !

Today is no long blue again, but it's black Monday.

Why ?

U.S. stocks market closed deep in the red on last Friday. The index closed more than 500 points. This is the main reasons affected Asia stock markets today. (In fact, not only Asia but worldwide stocks market.)

KLSE and STI closed markets at 1532.14(-42.53) and 2843.39(-127.62) respectively.

Make the thing worst is malaysia exchange rate - MYR/USD was hit 4.00+ whereas MYR/SGD about 3.00+

In this bear situation, I did not do anything to sell or buy at the moment and still like nothing happen. Like what I said earlier post, I used my savings invest into KLSE, not going for day-trade but invest is just for dividend returns.

To be honest, I'm seriously not worry about my market value of portfolio become lesser. I am still holding the company shares as far as they do not declare de-list from the market. But, I will still use my extra money to pump into market. Mostly, I will buy in my existing blue chip stocks to bring down the average share price.

I'm trying to write in simple English in my blog whenever story are related to STI markets and anything about my personal life in Singapore.

The main reasons behind is I want to step into SGX market as for now.


Today, I come across the DBS Vickers advertisement at POSB website. This is just nice for me as I am looking for a trading platform badly. One of the things make me consider DBS Vickers and not others is they are giving away $50 voucher for those who sign a new account with them. (T&C apply)
