Welcome to the first Monday of 2016! Here are three things about Singapore’s stock market and investing in general that you might want to look at today and over the weekend.

1. If you’d like to have a better appreciation of what 2016 has in store for investors in Singapore, then you’re in for a treat.

2. The start of a new year is also a good time to make resolutions. If you’re thinking of making any investing related ones, I have shared my own list for reference. It’s unique because it contains a list of things investors shouldn’t do. Intrigued? Check it out here.

3. Local bus operator SBS Transit Ltd (SGX: S61) signed a letter of intent with the Land Transport Authority (LTA) last week. This comes after the LTA had announced sweeping changes to Singapore’s public bus industry in early 2014. My colleague Chin Hui Leong took a look at the letter of intent earlier today, to figure out its potential impacts on SBS Transit. For more of Chin’s thoughts, click here.
