Ascendas REIT Technical Analysis



Ascendas REIT is just sitting on the 200D SMA support after dropped about 12% from the recent high. Take note that Ascendas REIT is forming a Head and Shoulders chart pattern.  Breaking the 200D SMA  support at $2.415 and neckline at $2.375 will send the stock price lower with price target of $2.08.



Ascendas REIT has a good fundamental and well diversified portfolio and tenant base. Currently Ascendas REIT is over value base on NAV. Technically I don’t like the chart (Head and Shoulders) amidst coming interest rate hike. So it is better to play safe now because there is opportunity to pick up this fundamental strong REIT at a lower price.

Why Most Investors Lose Money in Real Estate and Property Stocks in 2013?

  • Post author:

In general, your portfolio should have a lot of red (if you are still holding now) if you have invested in any property stocks (Capitaland, Keppel Land, City Development, UOL, etc) and REITs but did not hedge your portfolio with CFD.

So A-million dollar questions to most of the investors or traders in Singapore including myself:

  1. Is it the right time to pick up property stocks or REITs since the stock price has dropped so much?
  2. What should I do if I am still holding those property stocks and REITs? Should I cut loss or hold on and wait for the recovery?
  3. Is there any trading opportunity in property stocks?

Fundamentally the real estate / property sectors are hit by all the cooling measures and fear of interest hike due to QE tapering. I will not touch on the above 2 topics as there are already a lot of news and articles talking the impact to the property sectors in Singapore. I will be focusing in using technical analysis to analyse the overall trend for property sectors as a whole and individual stocks.

CapitaCommercial Trust – In consolidation.



Most of the property stocks and REITs either trading on down trend on in consolidation. Take note that the stocks are trading below 200D SMA (long term trend) which is sloping down (bearish signal). Base on the charts, this property and Real Estate sector have not found the bottom yet and probably will continue trading in a down trend in 2014. Bad news for investors who are still holding the stocks but good news for traders who know how to short the stock market. It will be a while for those smart investors who want undervalue stocks (Hong Kong Land, Capitaland, UOL, Keppel Land) to buy at bottom but need to keep a close eye on the chart.
