Market Review for STI:
Share prices opened lower with Straits Time Index down 2.98 points to 3288.59. Asian stocks were subdued on Tuesday as Wall Street turned cautious ahead of the corporate reporting season and earnings guidance from regional tech heavyweight Samsung came in well short of forecasts. The ratings agency expects that a surge in lending by Singapore banks in recent years will raise the risk of problem loans when interest rates rise. The red candlestick pattern is formed for the day with a lower shadow and very small upper shadow. The day trend in STI is up from the last week. Prices are above the 20 days EMA.
