this is good news for property ! 

those who took a position last year could potentially reap their reward.

central bank aka MAS remains supportive of low interest rates barring trade wars.

let's watch out for policy risks if the property market gets too heated

for those with a modicum of interest as to why appreciating and stronger SGD translates to lower interest rates domestically:-

Looks like interest rates in Singapore will continue to stay low or possibly decrease

Possible trade ideas
- lock-in SSB rates. This could be as high as it gets for the near term
- property play. Maybe too late as some players and developers have front-run the game. Possible policy risk if property markets overheat. Between rock and hard place
- REITs. Esp local like CCT and MCT. Sanguine on Ascendas REIT
- keep SGD buy G3Bor ES3 ETF on dips when risk-off sentiments strike


Anyone with ideas?
