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

Welcome to Monday evening! Here are three things about Singapore’s share market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the rest of the week.

1. The world is chaotic and unpredictable. How should investors find companies which can thrive in such an environment? I’ve used blue chips like Singapore Airlines Ltd (SGX: C6L) and Genting Singapore PLC (SGX: G13) as examples earlier today to illustrate how we could go about doing it.

2. When we invest, it might seem reasonable for us to need to try and find reasons for why the market or certain stocks have moved the way they did over a short time frame. But, I think this act can actually be really harmful. Why is that so? The short answer is that we might start seeing things which aren’t there at all. For the long answer, jump in here!

3. Ever wondered how you should handle all the worries that are plaguing the stock market at the moment, like the Greece crisis, low oil prices, or China’s economic slowdown? That’s a question my colleague Chin Hui Leong has tried to answer earlier today – check out his thoughts here.
