Did Feb-Mar rally change the picture for STI, DBS, Sembmar?

If you are a speculator, a 1-month rally is a big deal. For a long term investor with stock prospects making new 52-week lows, a 1-month rally is just a relief rally/retracement.

No sign of bullish reversal these three.

  1. Straits Times Index made a steep recovery and is now back above 2015-low.
  2. This level has potential to be support.
  3. The index did not print any bullish reversal pattern and the current top can be characterised as ‘lower high’ and still part of a down trend.
  4. The index is still negative for the year.

Clearly at loss for the year and in down trending mode. For those predicting recover in oil – yes there is some relief but whether it is a true reversal is suspect. Besides Sembmarine is not an oil producer; it has a different set of trouble (see here). It’s fortune is likely to improve only if there is reversal of fortune for Sete Brasil, if global rig count grows again leading to new contracts.
