The stock market has been on a topsy-turvy since US Federal Reserve’s hinted on plans for reducing its stimulus efforts which was chiefly led by the selling of foreign funds. We opined that it will take some time for investors to digest on the clawing back of stimulus or QE and this present a good opportunity to buy bargain stocks.

Across the region, China’s stocks began to lose ground having lost 6.3%, a portend that it might enter into a bear market after the central bank signalled it will maintain efforts to curb speculative lending as this will lead to a cash squeeze for the nation. Meanwhile, Nikkei 225 and Hang Seng indexes lost 1.26% and 2.2% respectively in tandem with the weak global market sentiment as investors continued to grapple with the US Federal Reserve’s plan to scale back stimulus.
