Chart alerts for ISOTeam and Singpost (9 May 17)

Two charts have caught my attention, one potentially bullish (Singpost) and the other one potentially bearish (ISOTeam). Below are my personal views.   1. ISOTeam – hanging near critical support Based on Chart 1 below, ISOTeam has been trading in an approximately 10 month range $0.370 – 0.430 since Jul 2016. Most exponential moving averages (“EMAs”) such as 20D, 50D and 100D are sliding and compressing. This compression is usually unsustainable over the long term and may signify a possible significant price movement. ADX closed at 24. Although the directional indicators (“DIs”) are positively placed, +DI is turning downwards quite […]

Chart highlights on Midas, Sapphire, Sunpower, Terratech (9 Feb 17)

Dear readers, The animal spirits seem to have finally descended on our Singapore market! Our STI is one of the best performing indices with a blistering 6.4% year to date return.

Ernest’s market outlook (14 Oct 16)

Dear readers, Although my market outlook is a biweekly issue, the technical outlook for some technical indices has deteriorated and I view it timely to update my clients. See below.   S&P500 Index Just to recap what I have mentioned on 7 Oct 2016 (see HERE), I wrote “all the exponential moving averages (“EMAs) are converging and trending higher.

Although the trend continues to be an uptrend until proven otherwise, my […]

Sino Grandness – on the verge of testing critical supports (26 Sep 16)

Sino Grandness has slumped 45% from an intraday high of $0.785 on 7 Jun 2016 to $0.435 on 26 Sep 2016. Sino Grandness has broken its support at $0.450 on 22 Sep 2016 with a larger than average volume. It is on the verge of testing an important support around $0.415 – 0.425. If this breaks with volume and on a sustained basis, it will be pretty bearish. Based on Chart 1 below, it remains entrenched within a strong downtrend with death crosses forming on its 21D and 200D EMA and 50D and 100D EMA. RSI is trading at around […]

Ernest’s market outlook (10 Jun 16)

Dear readers, Two weeks ago, I mentioned that I have increased my stock holding from 36% to 80% by accumulating on one stock on weakness. I have since taken profit on this single largest stock holding and have pared my stake in another stock. Besides the stock sales, I have increased my stake in another stock on weakness. All in, my percentage invested was reduced from 80% to approximately 31%. I am unlikely to exceed 50% invested in the next two weeks, unless I spot some extremely attractive opportunities as I remain cautious on the general market. Read on to […]
