For the month of January, the stock markets drifted lower and continued to hover near the lows, as traders and investors speculated whether they would break new lows or start a rebound.

Fundamentally, nothing much has changed, and the outlook continues to be bearish. As such, I will not be adding any equity positions till I see a stronger bottom for the market. I am looking at 2,200 or 2,000 for the STI index.

As part of my defensive strategy, I have increased my holdings in Gold, which should act as a good hedge if the stock markets continue to head lower.

For my long-term capital appreciation strategy, I have also increased my holdings in Oil, as I foresee a possible rebound some time this year.
