Last week, there was much turmoil and excitement in the market. Fortunes were made and lost. And many markets spiked strongly, hitting record new highs or lows.
The pound has crashed more than 12%.
Gold rose more than 5% in a day:
And Oil has started to tip under the 20-EMA (daily chart):
Fox news network wrongly reports that the UK has left the United Nations:
It seems that almost anything that deals in pounds or derives revenues from the UK is at risk of being dumped. For example, Comfortdelgro runs bus and taxi services in the UK, deriving more than 20% of its operating profit there.
But on the multi-year chart, if we zoom out a lot we see it has quite a bit of room to move down before it can be considered a bargain buy. I’ve talked about it in my previous workshops, when I showcase my 30-year forecasting chart for long-term investors.
There’s a lot of talk about the Brexit being a financial snowball that will end in financial mayhem. There are also people on the internet talking about a huge correction in real estate prices in Singapore:
Overall, I’m glad I stayed out of the Brexit and closed all my positions prior to the Brexit (last wednesday!). Having announced it on my private “live” chat to my program graduates, I sat back and calmly watched the world burn. Just kidding! 😀
What’s clear to me is that although the charts look a little ugly at the moment, the STI is still not undervalued.
For example, China Aviation still remains sky high, after having taken profit on a 5.83 R/R trade (meaning I made 5.8 times of what I risked for the trade):
Here’s the screengrab of when I took the trade,
And where it ended up last Friday. Looks like a really nice bounce setup but that’s for another time.
For now, since most charts are kind of messy and prices and in the middle of the spike range, I will be focusing more in intraday scalping trades to have consistent income even during such volatile times.
This is a defensive play, so instead of going for big wins, I am going for many small wins instead. Good luck!
