Technically Singapore REITs sectors rebounded recently due to the attractive valuation and distribution yield. 20D and 50D SMA are already sloping up showing that Singapore REIT sector is on short term and medium term uptrend. If the index can break the 200D SMA resistance and stay above this long term trend, Singapore REIT sector is back to life and start uptrend again. Start picking up the fundamental strong REIT as these REITs provide faster capital appreciation when the uptrend starts in addition to the quarterly / half yearly distribution payout.
