TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER 12.00GMT SE Asia Stocks-Rise ahead of Trump’s trade policy address. Southeast Asian markets eked out modest gains on Tuesday, with trade-sensitive Singapore shares rising the most as investors eagerly await a key speech by U.S. President Donald Trump for clues on a U.S.-China trade deal. Global stocks seek enlightenment from Trump on trade. U.S. President Donald Trump is scheduled to discuss the country’s trade policy at the Economic Club of New York on Tuesday, and the markets are likely to hang on every word. Prime Minister Boris Johnson won the most significant boost of the British election campaign to date when Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party pulled out of 317 Conservative-held seats in a bid to prevent opponents of Brexit controlling the next parliament. Britain’s opposition Labour Party said on Tuesday it was subject to a large-scale cyberattack on its digital platforms just weeks before a national election but it was confident no data breach occurred.

STRATEGY FOR 11 November Last week saw markets continue their dizzy heights in the US as records continually to be set. The S&P 500 posted its fifth week of gains as Wall Street hits records. The three major U.S. stock indexes posted record closing highs and the S&P 500 registered a fifth straight week of gains on Friday as investors brushed aside worries over the progress of U.S.-China trade talks. Euphoric optimism or foolhardy ignorance? A surprise bounce in Chinese manufacturing and optimism over U.S.-China trade talks tamped down fears of slowing global growth will lead me to suggest that a Santa rally will suffice for this year  CLICK HERE- thestock-market-is-guaranteed-to-rise-at-least-another-5-in-the-next-2-months-if-this-70-year-old-trend-holds. Last year Santa did not come to the party. For this year, black Friday may well be the influencer on whether there’s enough for Santa to arrive early.

In the UK, election mantra have begun in earnest where party exuberance in spending promises suggest that austerity now has become a dirty word. Moody’s the US credit agency has voiced its concern over the policy paralysis in UK politics suggesting a possible downgrading of UK’s credit rating. Last week the portfolio saw a return to positivity with a +1.60% increase. I have adopted a resurgent to UK strategy by using previous disposal proceeds in adding to spirent communications and a new share Augean Plc that deals with waste. Its recent share performance has seen it growth to a worthwhile opportunity. Last week’s 8% increase in Augean may bode well for the future. Spirent continued to elevate to higher highs. Recent disappointment continues with resource stocks Iofina and Sylvania platimum. Why not have a glimpse at November’s Master Investor Magazine which provides informative strategies on how to get clever investing in the Smart Economy. CLICK HERE which provides a welcome escape from the election merry go round. This week I look to monitor the share price target levels for the American shares. Until Next Time.
