5 major threats for the year of 2017


1. The bond slump 
“The upside potential on bonds is very limited at this point, but the downside potential is big, and you can lose a lot,” said Mercadal. The bond market is the largest in term of value in the world, lookout for any sign of weakness.


2. U.S. Dollar 
A sudden rise in the greenback might hurt the country’s exporters and derail the rebound in corporate profits after last year’s earnings recession. It would also be negative for emerging markets as investors would favor U.S. assets to avoid being exposed to weakening local currencies. The pain could also spread to commodities, priced in dollars, and mining companies.


3. Trump
“Markets have high expectations about Trump’s policies and there’s a risk of disappointment in the implementation of these policies, if they’re not as strong as hoped for or if they get delayed by Congress,”


4. China 
Deutsche Bank AG says it’s China that could be the biggest threat to market stability. The country’s macroeconomic momentum will likely weaken over the coming months...


5. The Fed 
An acceleration of inflation could prompt the Fed to increase rates faster, which may rein in economic growth and dent investor appetite for risk assets. Benichou said, referring to derivative markets indicating traders are protecting against equity volatility in the run-up to the Dutch and French elections.


Therefore the ability to read into the mircro development of the markets will help us to understand or may time on the above risks.

A retail investor from SGX Academy

Like to inform you that I learn a lot from you from the precision entry and short term trading strategies classes. Your class is very interesting as well.


The point so far that leaves the deepest impression to me is you mention at the point of entry, you got to be sure are we trading or investing. I started adopting this approach and I realise I became more confident in my trades and I am able to fine tune my approach as the approach to investing and trading is very different. I like your point on taking risk in investment but not in trading as well.

I believe not many people at the point of entry have an exit plan in the event that we are wrong. I do not have an exit plan as well previously. Then looking back when things don't go my way, I tend to panic or console myself when a trade don't go well that I am "a long term investor".


After adopting the above 2 points, I realise that I am confident in my trades and have more courage to execute a trade.


Even though both of your courses are more geared towards trading, I realise it can be applied to investing as well. For example, previously I used to just average down on a good stock along the way instead of looking for possible bottom before executing a trade. After attending the precision entry course, I am able to fine tune my entry point.


For short term trading strategies, I realise your first lesson was on understanding your profile and trade according to your lifestyle. Previously I tried to trade intra-day while working and realise I just could not cope and end up losing money. Looking back, if I knew this earlier then I can adjust accordingly.


You are able to explain clearly the strategies for intra-day as well as for longer term positions. The approach is very structured. You also share with us your views on the market and back it up with the charts. I appreciate the point on the inverse relationship between US and Asia market as well as how you read into the "herd mentality".


Will strongly recommend people to attend your classes.
