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

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

1. The market is DOWN! The market is UP! The market may seem like a roller coaster ride lately. In these turbulent investing times, it’s important that we do not panic. My colleague Esjay has some tips to share on how an investor might keep his or her cool in the face of the current volatile market conditions. Check them out here!

2. Singapore’s market benchmark, the Straits Times Index (SGX: ^STI), has fallen by over 20% currently from a recent high of 3,550 points reached on 16 April 2015. If you are thinking of buying into companies that have seen their share prices fall big in the hopes of catching price-rebounds, my colleague Chong Ser Jing has just written an article you need to read. In his piece, Ser Jing shared how some companies have share prices that may never recover after falling – it is an important lesson all investors need to know.

3. The global stock markets might seem volatile and scary at the moment. But, the really dangerous risk that we are facing may be more than just falling stock prices. This is a subject I had discussed earlier today, so jump in here for more!
