January was supposed to witness the Capricorn effect. Indeed, the first few days of January registered a STI increase. I've read somewhere that if the Capricorn effect did not materialise, then the market would be worse off in the later part of the year. This happened in 2008.
The only change to my portfolio this month is that I purchase another 23 lots of AIMSAMPIREIT at $0.215 2 days ago to round it up nicely to 120 lots. Apart from that, I didn't see anything good for buying for myself. I'm getting more and more cautious at the moment, only entering very selectively. There's a time to buy, there's a time to wait, and there's a time to sell. To me, I believe this is the time to wait, to be excessively patient and cautious. While I believe markets can still rise, most stocks at this level have a low margin of safety as compared to before, so I would wait.
