Weekly wrap of STI
Singapore shares tracked losses and heading for their biggest weekly loss in more than 3-1/2 months, Index slipped after disappointing Chinese manufacturing data raised concerns over the economy.

Week starts with flat node and initially traded in very narrow and same range below 50 day MA level, and mid of the week STI crossed its support level and badly fell 3100 mark. STI was opened @ 3137.26 and then it made a high of 3142.05 , and faced resistance at that level and fell down , took support at 3071.28 and finally closed at 3075.99 with loss of 71.34 points down by 2.27% wow basis.

Macroeconomic factors:

  • Singapore inflation eased at averaged 2.4 % for the whole of 2013, “sharply lower” than the 4.6 per cent in 2012, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) said in a joint statement.
  • Singapore 4Q Private-Home Prices Fall 0.9% on Qtr Vs +0.4% in 3Q.
  • Singapore’s manufacturing sector expanded by a surprising 6.2%in December compared to a year ago, as a 22.2% jump in electronics output helped to offset a 14.9 % contraction in the biomedical manufacturing cluster. Excluding the volatile biomedical sector, industrial production would have grown an even stronger 12.1% year-on-year.
  • Singapore’s private home prices fall first time since Q1 2012, down 0.9% in Q4
