STI weekly Summary: In last week, STI fell 108 points from the opening of 2991 and close higher at 2883. A black candle sticks with little upper/lower shadow affirms that investors have no qualms in selling the stocks lower.
Week Ahead: In the coming week, Investors will be watching for U.S. economic data, minutes from the FOMC and the continuing situation in Europe. However, Europe may continue to drive the action as markets navigate the politics of Greece and Italian and French debt auctions. Many strategists see a further decline ahead for the stock market and expect choppiness to continue as the US market is only 5% down. but we maintain our previous view that we see the recent correction as a good opportunity to enter the market.
STI index broke the critical support at 2906 in the past week to end the consolidation mode since Feb 2011 and this is a bearish mode. The weekly trading volume increases as the selling pressure soars on fears. The supported turn resistance at 2906 will be a critical level for the bulls to clear as the breached of this level affirms to the recovery of the market.
Trading strategy wise now, STI has broken the critical support at 2906 and end the consolidation mode. This is bearish signal. Although we see recent correction as a buying opportunity, but we do not advise anyone to buy on pullback now especially for those stocks with negative earnings result, and watch for sign of consolidation first. STI’s next support is 2848, take note of this figure as we may see a technical rebound at this level ahead.

欧洲市场会继续成为市场走势的定位。而由于美国市场只掉了5％， 所以专家纷纷预言未来股市的进一步下跌。 但是我们依旧保持我们之前的看法， 在大盘调整的时候是一个入场的机会！
11点2月至今的盘整模式。 因为抛售压力大增导致了本周交易量的上升。而2906点也由支撑 点变成大盘的关键阻力点。海指只有在回到这个关键点位以上， 市场才能确定继续上扬的定位。
第四季度净利润为12.9亿，上涨30％。 由于一些区域移动联营公司的贡献上升以及其澳洲货币兑换率上的盈 利。
