I like to look at charting to give me a better overview of the Straits Time Index market. Below is an extract of Nikko AM STI ETF factsheet showing the fund price chart of Nikko AM STI ETF since its inception. If you have invested such STI ETF during its recent peak of STI in mid april 2015, you might lose on paper value about 12-13%.
I own a couple of value stocks, some Singapore REITs and STI ETF. STI had already broke its recent support level at 2800 had prompted me to buy some more units. My current dollar cost averaging is approximately $2.58 per unit and gaining around 8 percent dividend return annually for the past few years. It may not surprise me that STI will drop further in 2016 to possibly 2500. That could be another good chance to do another dollar cost average down.
