STI ends 0.2% higher

Trading is forecast to be in a more consolidative mode.

OCBC Investment Research said:

The muted reactions on Wall Street overnight and the weak Nikkei start (down 0.2% now) are likely to keep the local bourse in a more consolidative mode this morning.

As a recap, the STI opened strongly with a 0.8% gain yesterday but gave most of it up to end just 0.2% higher.

Nevertheless, the 3110 previous key obstacle has been conquered and is now the newly established immediate resistance-turned-support. Below that, the next base lies at the 3080 minor resistance-turned-support.

On the upside, 3140 (gap resistance) is now the immediate obstacle, with the subsequent hurdle pegged at the 3180 support-turned-resistance.

IG Markets Singapore meanwhile noted:

In Singapore today, Thai tycoon Charoen sees his deadline expire for his $8.88 offer for Fraser & Neave. Thailand’s richest have been the source of many M&A deals across the region this year and Charoen won’t want to see his name drop off that list.

The futures market points to a positive start to the day in Singapore, with the STI set to open marginally higher this morning.
