Important Factors for today:-

  • Oil prices rose more than US$1 a barrel in early Asian trade, as last week’s framework deal between Iran and global powers on Tehran’s nuclear programme offers little chance for any significant increase in exports until 2016.
  • The value of stocks traded daily on the Singapore Exchange fell last month from February and stagnated compared to March 2014.
  • Banks and credit card companies in Singapore have teamed up to launch a scheme to help highly leveraged borrowers ease their debt burden.
  • Market breadth in Singapore remained positive, with almost two gainers for every decliner.
  • Small caps mostly outperformed blue chips, which generally stagnated as investors held back ahead of the March-quarter earnings season, which starts next week.
  • Singapore’s central bank is likely to ease monetary policy further this month by re-centring its exchange-rate band lower to help support the local economy, which is slowing down and grappling with deflation.
  • A 9.7% y-o-y fall in Singapore’s exports in February has given rise to the risk of a contraction in the domestic economy in 1Q2015.
