    30 mins have gone by.
    So far, the 4 Musketeers seem stable.
    If they remain stable for another half hour, those waiting to buy will start buying.

    She needs to focus on how to Plan B for bank stocks. As you all know, banks rose by ALOT ALOT in 2017.
    So for those who are SHORT in the banks, they also need to do ALOT ALOT of Plan Bs to carry out damage control.
    Buffering is one way. And slowly cutting on pullback is another way. And becos banks' earnings are primed to rise, not
    fall in 2018 due to rising interest rates in a rising growth economy, the way to go is to slowly get rid of SHORTs during
    pullbacks and use the capital returned to go LONG to reap the full benefits of rising bank stocks. It may take a while.
    But she'll get there over time.

    Last nite on Money Mind, an analyst said oil price has risen and that will drive up demand for bio-diesel.
    And what this means is that palm will also see an increase in demand.

    She is taking a break from posting to sort out her portfolio to see how to ride her winners and cut her losers.

    "On a brighter note, Menon says that there are good reasons to be optimistic about growth in 2018,
    and that the Goldilocks scenario is a reasonable baseline view – at least for this year."


    Banks are proxies to a country's economic health. When an economy grows, there is more business activity and more business
    spending. Oftentimes, businesses spend more at times of growth to expand, to invest in new ventures, or new equipment and new
    office
    or commercial or industrial space or in new technology. To finance this spending, they borrow more. Meaning, most likely banks
    will see an increase in lending and as such, their earnings will continue to rise in 2018 in a rising interest rate environment and with that,
    bank stocks consequently, will rise too.

    SINGAPORE (Jan 15): Ravi Menon, the managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), has warned that while economic indicators are pointing towards a Goldilocks economy that is chugging along comfortably, there are unseen risks – the three bears – that might return to spoil the fairy-tale.

    “Unlike fairy-tales which tend to have a ‘happily ever after’ ending, the real world is characterised by cycles of good times and bad times,” Menon says at the UBS Wealth Insights Conference on Monday.

    According to Menon, the three potential party-poopers are the “Papa Bear” of inflation, the “Mama Bear” of protectionism, and the “Baby Bear” of financial instability.

    “On conventional wisdom, [Papa Bear] should be making an appearance by now,” Menon says, pointing out that, historically, inflation comes from high wage growth in a tight labour market during the late stages of the business cycle.

    “Whenever central bankers gather these days, this phenomenon of ‘missing inflation’ is often the main topic of discussion,” he adds.

    However, Menon warns that inflation could return when the tightening cyclical factors outweigh the structural disinflationary forces.

    Next, Menon cautions against complacency about the return of protectionism – the biggest fear this time last year, which was represented by the results of the Brexit referendum in the UK and presidential elections in the US.

    “The underlying causes for populist anger and support for protectionism are deeply rooted,” he says. “And let us not take a hibernating bear for a dead one. This is a bear that may not wake up for a very long time, maybe never. But if it does, it could be ferocious.”

    According to Menon, protectionism could do much harm on the global economy as its reach extends the flow of goods and services, to the flow of capital and technology.

    “The risk remains that some countries may erect trade and investment barriers and others may do so in retaliation,” he says. “A protectionist spiral will almost certainly derail the growth momentum, not just for 2018 but beyond.”

    Finally, the central banker opines that the “Baby Bear” of financial instability is not small, mainly due to the build-up of leverage in recent years. “High leverage is a risk factor for financial instability,” he says.

    In particular, Menon notes that “the financial stability risks in the US and China warrant close monitoring, simply given the size of their economies and financial markets, not to mention the build-up of leverage.”

    On a brighter note, Menon says that there are good reasons to be optimistic about growth in 2018, and that the Goldilocks scenario is a reasonable baseline view – at least for this year.

    “Let us hope and work for the former (good times), but also prepare for the latter (bad times),” he adds. “And the best way to prepare for bad times is to avoid excesses and build up buffers during good times.”

    Dow has been up 100+ pts to 200+ pts day after day but our market didnt follow.
    So what this means is that Dow must pullback 100+ pts to 200+ pts first.
    Then our market will be appeased that Dow has pulled back and is ready to go higher.
    Dow has been rising for consecutive days but our market didnt feel comfy to follow her up.
    A case of people feel market is toppish and they dont want to chase.
    So prices must pull back first. Then they feel safer to buy.
    Which is already happening for some counters.
    So now have to wait for the rest to catch up with the pulling back.
    The banks didnt pull back.
    They are UP... +22 cts... +24 cts... +8 cts.
