As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Think of Investing in Stock Market as Game of Tug of War (2)

Read? Singapore’s Retail Investors Load Up On What Institutions Dump

CW8888 : Insitutions have to follow their rules closely or else their performance bonuses will be affected; but retail can choose to follow heart and mind with Panadols. LOL!

Taking which side? Your own choice. After Point X, you will know right or wrong. 


Retail investors are filling the void left by institutions in Singapore’s equities market this year, Singapore Exchange Ltd. data show.

Individuals have pumped a net S$4.8 billion ($3.5 billion) into the city-state’s stocks since March, whereas institutions offloaded a similar amount in the same period, according to calculations by Bloomberg based on data from the Singapore bourse. The divergence began to become apparent in March, when retail investors put in an aggregate of S$1.9 billion and professional investors sold around S$1.8 billion.

Parting Ways

Singapore retail investors piled into stocks while institutional ones exited.

Individual investors are drawn by high dividend yields offered by the nation’s stocks, “and they are sitting at home, they have nothing to do,” said Aik Hong Ng, deputy head of Phillip Investor Centre, a unit of Phillip Securities Pte. Some are using creative ways to take advantage of low valuations as well, using advances on credit cards and loading up on debt and leverage to purchase more shares.

Online brokerage apps with low transaction fees also helped boost the retail trading activity, according to Nirgunan Tiruchelvam, head of consumer sector equity research at Tellimer.

  1. As of now, those who bought in march should be sitting on nice profits.

    Average price might not be so impressive,but if late march is the entry, think the retails are the way laughing now.

    1. ha ha. I fired way too early in Feb and at the wrong counter!

  2. i bought even earlier- last year.

    What happens in Singapore stock market now is exactly what happens in USA.

    Bei Kamings is always the main fodder for market institutional players, i suppose.

    i did buy in March this year but stop when market was spiraling like nobody's business -(aka balls suddenly missing somewhere unlike in 2008 buy all the way to march 2009.When the market falling knife killed many people.).
    Almost got killed myself so stop this time in March. But KNN, the FED RES comes in and promised unlimited QE. Worse, FED begins to participate in the market too.

    So what next?

    What now?



    U think if Trump is voted in for 2nd term, is there hope for the Stock Market and World Economy?

    What about Biden?

    Better or worse?

    Nah! it is already at the bottom.

    Continue scrapping U only get rice crust.

    It can not get worse, right?
