3 Things You Need To Know About the Singapore Share Market Today

Welcome to Friday evening! Here are three things about Singapore’s share market that you might want to look at today and over the weekend.

1. One of the biggest fears that investors have to confront in the stock market is that they will lose their money – sometimes all of it. But the truth is, there are ways for us to overcome those fears as well as lessen the risk of us losing our capital (unfortunately, no one can ever completely remove the risk of suffering losses). My colleague Chin Hui Leong shows you how.

2. Carrier Singapore Airlines Ltd (SGX: C6L) is a proud blue chip that occupies an important position in the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), Singapore’s market benchmark which is made up of 30 of the largest companies listed here. But, does that mean Singapore Airlines would make for a great investment? I’d argue no – and here’s why I think so.

3. It’s Friday the 13th today, a day which is often associated with ill luck and bad fortune. Because of that, investors might be wary of investing on Fridays which fall on the 13th of each month. But, is there any real investing basis for such an aversion? Would Fridays the 13th really be bad days to invest? The short answer’s an emphatic no. For the long answer, you can check out my colleague David Kuo’s work here.
