img_20191204_192759Geoff gave a very comprehensive and succinct presentation on how different sectors performed, not just in Singapore, but the world as well. REITs in particular, have given very good returns for 2019.

You can find the full presentation here.

Next, we had Desmond from Everest Fortune Group, also known as EFG on InvestingNote where he does daily technical ideas and calls. Follow him here.

img_20191204_194505Desmond gave the technical outlook for both the Hang Seng Index and Straits Times Index. Based on technical analysis aspect, it does not particularly bode well for both the indexes for 2020. Investors might have to be more cautious when trying to trade or invest in the market, especially during this prolonged volatile period.

Is a 90% return in ONE SINGLE trade in a week even possible?

Is a 90% return in ONE SINGLE trade in a week even possible?

Yes it apparently is.

Sometime last week, one of the participants with the username @minci in the SG Active Trading Tournament had a 92.80% return in ONE SINGLE trade.

How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

How to Capitalise on the recent Keppel Corp News

Last week, the major news was Temasek’s plan to offer Keppel shareholders $7.35 per share, in cash, to buy 554.9 million shares or 30.55% of Keppel.

 

Related imageImage result for keppel corp

This partial offer will raise its stake in Keppel from the current 20.45% to 51%.

Temasek will be doing this through its wholly owned subsidiary Kyanite Investment Holdings.

Prior to this news which was released on 22 October Tuesday, Keppel’s shares were halted on 21 October Monday.

When the trading halt was lifted on Tuesday, after the news was announced, Keppel’s stock soared more than 10%.

If you’d bought the Keppel Corp Long DLC on 22 October – it gave a 70% in just one day!

However, this is where it gets interesting – even if you got in late, by buying the 5x Long DLC on 22 October AFTER the news and the stock shooting up, the DLC still could have made you more than 20% within a few days.

This is the magnitude of serious returns we’re talking about.

So what’s this all mean for retail investors?

A Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC) is a type of leveraged product listed on the SGX which allows you to get leveraged return of an underlying single stock or index. The leverage is fixed every day, e.g. for a 5x Long DLC, every 1% movement in the mother share will lead to 5% movement in the LongDLC price.

So whenever you see a short-term trading opportunity, e.g. stock about to break out, index reaching support level etc., you can use DLC as a tool to get leveraged return. This recent scenario of Keppel exemplifies this perfectly.

4 key reasons why you should use DLCs:

  1. Simple trading instrument to get leveraged return of popular stocks and indices from Singapore and Hong Kong
  2. No account opening process required; trade it like a stock – simply go to your stock broker account to trade DLCs (subject to SIP qualification)
  3. LongDLC and ShortDLC – two types of DLCs allow you to gain from both ups and downs of the Underlying stock or index
  4. Lower barrier of entry – one lot of DLC is 100 shares, and the unit price is usually much cheaper than the mother share, allowing lower barrier of entry and more flexible allocation of your investment capital

Here’s the full list of DLC & the corresponding underlying securities every investor and trader needs to know: https://dlc.socgen.com/en/product/search

Our ongoing simulation competition for you to experience trading DLC with up to $15,000 worth of prizes for grab: http://bit.ly/SGATT2019

Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

Daily Leverage Certificates – A Whole New World (Guest Post)

First introduced in July 2017, I felt that DLC hasn’t been well understood by the market for its use and purpose other than being perceived as yet another leveraged product to stay away from. Leveraged products need not be risky when controlled properly and used appropriately. It’s actually an opportunity for retail investors to act and benefit like a hedge fund.

The 6 Stocks Which Grew More Than 5% In Price In A Month

The 6 Stocks Which Grew More Than 5% In Price In A Month

With the trade talk between China and US being resumed after the G20, both Singapore and HK markets rallied big time. It’s time to spot some potential stocks!

Image result for g20

Let’s look at 3 Hong Kong stocks that have caught the public’s eye:

According to Reuters, on  27th June Shares in Hong Kong rose on Thursday, extending the previous day’s cautious gains, as investors’ hopes of a trade truce between the United States and China rose ahead of a highly anticipated meeting between the countries’ leaders. At the close of trade, the Hang Seng index was up 399.44 points or 1.42% at 28,621.42, adding to the previous day’s 0.1% gain.

The top gainer on the Hang Seng was Sunny Optical (2382 HK)-mainland China’s largest manufacturer of smartphone camera modules and lenses which gained 4.03%. Sunny Optical is also up by at least 20% within a month. If you have a 5x leverage, it would be more than 100% gain!

screen-shot-2019-07-05-at-3-47-35-pm

Besides Sunny Optical Technology Group Co Ltd, AAC Technologies (2018 HK)-acoustic components supplier to Apple Inc also rose 7.1 per cent to HK$47.50 as reported by South China Morning Post. It has also risen more than 10% within a month. If you have a 5x leverage, it amounts to more than 50% gain!

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

What Is A DLC? Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Trade A Daily Leverage Certificate

Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) are exchange-traded financial products that enable investors to take a leveraged exposure to an underlying asset, such as a blue chip stock or an equity index.

dlc

DLCs replicate the performance of an underlying asset versus its previous day closing level, with a fixed leverage factor.

There are new DLCs with 20 regional blue chip stocks ranging from DBS to Tencent, as the underlying asset! Check out the full list of DLCs here.

For investors who want to maximise their short term exposure to market movements, DLCs can provide the opportunity to increase the exposure by a fixed factor, up to 5 times.

For DLCs with blue chip stocks as the underlying, the returns are magnified by 5x! For indexes, you can select a leverage from 3x, 5x or 7x!

Also, it doesn’t matter if the market is bearish as well – you can buy a short DLC to capitalise on a bearish situation.

For the 5x DLC with Venture as the underlying asset, it actually yielded a return of more than 70% in a week, just back in February!

The following is a detailed infographic by SGX on the Top 5 characteristics of DLCs.
