SINGAPORE (June 22): Here are two charts for your technical analysis this week:

STI daiiy (3,356)
The Straits TImes Index fell almost 70 points in the past five sessions after falling 80 points a week earlier. Down momentum is strong, but short-term indicators are becoming increasingly oversold.

Short-term stochastics is at the bottom of its range, and 21-day RSI is at 30, a low level. ADX is at 32, a high level, suggesting that prices are likely to hit an excessively oversold level soon, at around mid-week next week.

Volume was elevated on June 22, but once this abates, the index should be able to stage a temporary bounce. At this stage, it is too eary to tell if the temporary bounce will turn into a relief rally.

The weekly chart shows a gradual downturn by annual momentum, with its own weighted moving average turning down a well. This suggests that a primary downtrend is forming. Support/breakdown was at 3,338, the April low, A break below this level indicates a downside measuring objective of 3,100.

AEM ($1.15) Short-term oversold
Prices regained their 200-day moving average at $1.13 on June 22. Short term stochastics is at the bottom of its range, and 21-day RSI touched a low of 26 before rebounding.

Some short-term stability should set it, with prices attempting to rebound towards $1.26.

Overall, though, the downtrend, which came in force at the end of May may not have run its course. The level to watch is $1.13 with a breakdown indicating a target of $1.

SINGAPORE (July 23): OCBC Investment Research and CGS-CIMB Securities have downgraded their ratings on CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT) to “hold” from “buy” and “add” previously after the trust’s 2Q18 results came in line with both research houses’ expectations.
