If you buy now, you should exit within the next 3 months. I believe recession is coming.

However, if you are in for long term (i.e. 5 - 10 years) where you can buy and forget, then I suggest you go and dig out Temasek holding's portfolio. Buy the stocks that give good dividends.

If you're in for long term I think you can just buy sti etf. This way you don't need to pick stocks and at the same time you have stake in blue chips

I'm a TA person. The stock index charts reflect so.

In Singapore, oil and gas industry started retrenchment many months ago. Some as early as last year. With no one buying oil and gas (i.e. energy), that implies manufacturing industry is slowing down.

And in Singapore again, semiconductor industry has started retrenchment. From silicon wafers, to packaging them into chips, to putting them into handphones and smart watches and tablets, to shipping them to departmental stores, the whole duration spans about 6 months. If the industry retrench people today, that means they expect electronics sales will dip 6 months later.

And yesterday's news mentioned that Singapore has avoided technical recession in Q3. If this is not a important clarification/news to tell Singapore residents, it won't make it to the news right? And why clarification/news is needed?

==============

EDIT: To add on, the recession is not going to be as serious or severe as that in 2008/2009. Again, this is suggested by the stock index charts.

My personal view that it will be worst than 2700-2800.
Like what migration say, if things are  improving from sep why 154/MAS need to spin so hard on q3 technicial recession news yesterday?

Tornado is correct. The upcoming recession will be worse than last month.

Stock market is fractal. Market moves up and down to form one complete cycle, but it don't return to it's original starting point. This complete cycle is a fraction of another bigger cycle.

Last month is a "correction" for stock market spanning sometime from 2011 to 2015 Aug. The next "correction" for stock market belongs to a bigger cycle. Markets have been rising from 2009 to now. What goes up has to come down.

STI ETF yields 2.6% to 2.8%? fractionally better than the O.A.'s 2.5% not counting trading costs. Treat the monies in CPF as "bonds". Invest your cash higher in the risk spectrum .... just my POV
