Weekly Market Update

  Thoughts on the Week Ahead: Week of May 27, 2024 Taking a lift down from the HDB flat, enjoy a brisk walk to Sixth Avenue for Sunday breakfast. This scenario, unimaginable many candlesticks ago, is soon becoming a reality in Singapore. This week, the spotlight is on the US PCE inflation report, which has the potential to move the market. The market expects a 0.3% uptick, a notable deceleration from March. The US earnings season is nearly over, with attention remaining on results from Costco and Dell. In China, May's official PMI figures are anticipated to reflect a modest expansion in manufacturing, shedding light on the potential allocation of over CNY 1 trillion in stimulus from long-dated bonds. Market technicals for the S&P 500 continue to suggest an upward trend, but we are very cautious about the market as the earnings season ends and investors re-evaluate current valuations.

Our stop level is set below S$1.72. Disclaimers Apply

  Thoughts on Week Ahead: Week 19 May 2024 “It’s Fresh!” US markets hit fresh highs this week, driven by modest CPI data and resilient earnings reports. Investors are now awaiting the FOMC minutes for clues on the future interest rate policy.

We initially anticipated sideways momentum in the US market indices, but the market exceeded our expectations, breaking above our range. As a result, we have revised our technical outlook to cautiously bullish, setting our next target at 5,420. In the East, Beijing is implementing more aggressive policies following its trillion-dollar bond sale. The central government plans to buy back unsold homes and eliminate mortgage rate floors for individuals. Our team believes that even more aggressive measures may be introduced if necessary to revive the economy and stabilize falling property prices. The Greater China indices, China A50
