Important Factor for today:-

  • Energy stocks took a hit in Asian trade as oil prices fell towards six-year lows with warnings of further volatility ahead but some rare upbeat Chinese trade data helped Hong Kong and Shanghai into positive territory.
  • Resale prices of non-landed properties in Singapore inched up 0.1 per cent in December compared to the previous month, largely because of a 0.5 per cent rise in prices for suburban units.
  • Singapore’s non-oil domestic exports in December were expected to fall versus a year earlier, a Reuters poll found, after recent business surveys showed the global economy ended 2014 on weak footing.
  • Oil prices slumped on Monday to nearly 6-year lows under US$48 (S$64) per barrel, hurting the energy sector, but euro zone stock markets pushed higher on stimulus hopes.
  • A bond index created by the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and Reuters tracking Singapore-dollar denominated bonds continues to hit new highs, outperforming the Straits Times Index (STI) for the week ended Jan 9, 2015.
  • Resale prices of non-landed properties in Singapore inched up 0.1 per cent in December compared to the previous month, largely because of a 0.5 per cent rise in prices for suburban units.
