Prize Presentation Ceremony and 2020 Market Outlook Recap
Yesterday night was the Prize Presentation Ceremony of the SG Active Trading Tournament and our two esteemed speakers, Geoff Howie (SGX Market Strategist) and Desmond Leung (Everest Fortune Group) gave a 2019 wrap-up and 2020 market outlook.
Geoff 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.
Desmond 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.
Next, we had the tournament round-up, as presented by Alvin Li from Societe Generale, our co-organizer of this Trading Tournament.
