Straits Times Index
We held our latest Effective Technical Analysis class on 7 Aug. Above is the chart we analysed together after the class.
STI is trading nears its channel low with momentum indicator MACD also trading nearing its lows, we have expectations that selling is likely to exhaust.
Thus, we have a short-term bullish bias on STI, with alternative bias of STI breaking below Channel
Wishing all great weekend ahead.

Despite Singapore market experienced sell off today, ThaiBev broke above its range after earnings announcement.
Smart Money has been with the stock since the stock broke above the red downward trendline. This can be seen from our RS indicator as it stayed above zero line since the red line break-out. RS above zero indicates the stock is outperforming the index.
Upward momentum is expected to continue. Thus, I'll be on a lookout for pullback for trading opportunities.
RS helps us identify stocks that outperform the market which mostly has a better demand factor for potential further upward move.

Shanghai Composite (SSE)
Despite US President Donald Trump tweeted that tariff will be delayed on some imports from China until 15 December, Shanghai Composite's rally was resisted by its support-turned-resistance level at 2,830.
As index is unable to clear its overhead resistance, we have a short-term bearish bias on SSE, expecting the index to trade within range and retesting its support at 2,735.
The downtrend line (Red Line) is key trend line to break if price is to resume its uptrend.

DBS broke key support at S$25.00. With price experiencing steep outflow and weaker than market performance, DBS is expected to trade towards S$24.00.
MACD continues to trade in bearish momentum.
Trading above S$25.22 will falsify above analysis.
