With the oil and commodities market taking a plunge, it has caused many O&M (offshore & marine) counters to correct significantly, and I have decided to pick up a small position in Keppel for my investment portfolio. It is unlikely to be at the bottom yet, so if price continues to go down, I will hedge with CFDs (by taking a short position), so that I can average down using the profits from my hedge positions.
With the STI nearing major resistance, I will not be looking to add more to equities, as I would like to wait for a 15-25% correction before the yields start to become attractive again.
If commodities continue to head lower, I might consider adding more to my commodity positions in my next portfolio rebalancing.
This was an average month for my forex trading, but an excellent month for my CFDs trading. Here are the full results:
