Singapore: STI Index (.STI) shares opened higher on Monday
Singapore stocks opened higher on Monday (Aug 27), with the Straits Times Index gaining 9.75 points, or 0.3 per cent to 3,222.75 as at 9.02am.
Gainers outnumbered losers 88 to 31, after about 27.9 million shares worth $77.4 million changed hands.
The most actively traded counter was Thai Beverage, which was flat at $0.64, with 7.3 million shares traded.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Downwards.
By the way, prices are vulnerable to a correction towards 3,308.29.
The projected upper bound is: 3,298.22.
The projected lower bound is: 3,147.77.
The projected closing price is: 3,223.00.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 3 white candles and 7 black candles for a net of 4 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 21 white candles and 28 black candles for a net of 7 black candles.
A bullish harami occurred (where the current small white body is contained within an unusually large black body). During a downtrend (which appears to be the case with STRAITS TIMES) this pattern implies an end to the decline as the bears appear to have exhausted themselves.
During an uptrend the bullish harami pattern is bearish as the bears appear to be gaining strength as the bulls weaken.
An inverted hammer occurred. If this occurs during a downtrend (which appears to be the case with STRAITS TIMES) it implies a reversal. Look for a confirmation of the reversal on the bar.
A long upper shadow occurred. This is typically a bearish signal (particularly when it occurs near a high price level, at resistance level, or when the security is overbought).
A shooting star occurred (a shooting star has a small real body near the bottom of the candle and a long upper shadow). During an uptrend the long upper shadow indicates that the bears are gaining control and a top may occur.
A spinning top occurred (a spinning top is a candle with a small real body). Spinning tops identify a session in which there is little price action (as defined by the difference between the open and the close). During a rally or near new highs, a spinning top can be a sign that prices are losing momentum and the bulls may be in trouble.
Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 60.9170. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 43.16. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 34 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -43. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 9 period(s) ago.
