Political language in Singapore!

Our government always insists  that it is transparent and often uses the "A spade is a spade" terminology.  Is our government walking the talk?  Let's see a few examples below.

Flooding ------> Ponding
Bad sexual behaviour ------> Personal indiscretion
Not dangerous ------> Not safety critical
Seized in HK ------> Delayed in HK (our tanks were seized)

Please feel free to add on to the SG political language list so that we can all learn from this list.

Red alert for Hong Kong air traffic control!

Hong Kong airport has just upgraded its air traffic control system which contains some dangerous bugs that can endanger the lives of passengers.  The air control system can give off false signals to traffic controller and result in fatal mistakes.  Beware!

The true agenda behind the seizure of SG tanks in Hong Kong.

The seizure of SG 9 tanks in HK is not entirely targeted at SG but Taiwan.  Taiwan has been extremely anti-China after Tsai took office.  China wants to isolate Taiwan by cutting off Taiwan military ties with other countries.  Therefore, China is pressuring SG with diplomatic discussion over the handover of SG tanks in exchange for Taiwan isolation.

After the seizure, China air force flew around Taiwan to serve as a warning.

SG has been too complacent and insensitive towards China.  After making anti-China remarks over South China Sea Issues, SG should be careful about provoking China further.  When we have a good relationship with China, China can overlook a lot of things.  However, when the relationship is rocky, China will scrutinise a lot of things too.  There won’t be any preferential treatment from China when we don’t want China to look at SG as a Chinese nation.  There is no such thing as having the best of both worlds as we live in a harsh reality.  Let this be a small lesson learnt and hopefully our government will be more politically sensitive towards China.

"Singapore image in China is so rotten!" - China perspective

The truth is finally out.  We've stated numerous times in our previous postings that anti-Singapore sentiment had taken root in China.  Like we said, China no longer believes in what we say but rather what we do now.

President Park has finally given up on holding her office!

As predicted in our previous post, she would step down due to her scandal.

One of my favourite chinese dramas - Heaven's way! 天道!

This China drama is based on European essay called the last messiah.

Please watch the 24 episodes if you have the time.  It is a philosophical drama which depicts human conscience, conscious and behaviour.  Reading the synopsis on The Last Messiah will help you to understand the drama better.

Trump is right to insist on bilateral trade talks than multi-lateral TPP. Why?

TPP primary motive was to pursue USA political interest against China and to deter China economic growth.  Without TPP, It will be tough to negotiate with USA during bilateral trade talk because USA is the largest economy in the world.  Japan, the 3rd largest economy, will also face tremendous difficulty against USA.  As TPP was a trade weapon to be used against China, USA gave a lot of concessions to Japan as a tradeoff for being anti-China.  Japan has to open up its farm and agricultural industry for bilateral FTA which is detrimental to Japan PM’s party as his supporters are mostly farmers.  Donald Trump will be focusing on USA economic benefits during bilateral trade talks.  Therefore, it’s tough to negotiate with USA based on economic interests.

President park approval rating dropped to 4%

We stated in our previous post that she's likely to step down as President due to her scandal and it looked like this outcome would materialize soon as her approval rating had dropped to 4%.

Her scandal also revealed that her closest friend was behind the THAAD system installation deal in which she received a huge commission from Lockheed Martin for the transaction.  This showed that THAAD system installation was not to defend South Korea but for corruption.  President Park disregarded South Korea interests for her friend's interest.  Therefore, she should step down.

How China views Singapore nowadays?

Anti-Singapore sentiment has taken root in China and we've already stated this in our previous post.  If we don't want China to view SG as a Chinese nation, we also cannot demand any preferential treatment from China.  This is how reality works!

China no longer trusts SG now.  China is taking the stance that it will believe in what it sees but not what it hears.  SG can explain and clarify but if we don't synchronize our verbal and non-verbal communications, China will not trust us.  In other words, we cannot say one thing but do another thing.

Japan has suffered a bad karma for being USA staunch ally.

Japan has shot itself in its own foot by being USA staunch ally.

Firstly, Trump had slapped Japan PM right in the face by announcing the termination of TPP after he's in office even after Japan PM visited Trump.

Secondly, Russia will be deploying new missiles near Japan and there is nothing Japan can do about it.

Thirdly, Vietnam is trying to appease China by terminating a Japanese nuclear project.

Will Malaysia award the HSR project to Japan or China? Let's see.

Will SG face the same predicament too?  Let's see.

Every country is trying to get distance itself from USA and get cozy with China.  Just look at latin America countries! See what Peru and Chile are doing with China!

How did analysts and news media get the stock market so wrong with Trump's win?

Many analysts and news media predicted stock market crashes when Trump was elected president.  However, there was only a knee jerk reaction and the stock markets became euphoria with Trump being the president.

How did they get it so WRONG?

Well, either they were so biased and wanted to spread fears or they analysed the situation from only 1 single angle (uncertainty with Trump).  Nonetheless, they were dead wrong about the outcome.

Let's analyse the economic situation from a more objective perspective so that we can all understand the bullishness of the stock markets.

GDP = G + I + C + Nx (X-M)

Trump is a protectionist and will spend on local infrastructures (G).  This will improve employments and increase GDP since G is part of it.  The anticipated interest rate increase has caused funds (I) to flow back to USA which can be seen from USD appreciation.  Therefore, investments (I) have increased which will boost GDP since I is part of it.  Consumer consumption takes up more than 2/3 of USA GDP and consumerism will increase with better employment.  Although TPP will be terminated when Trump takes office, he is proposing bilateral trade agreements (Nx) with other countries instead of multi-lateral.  This will put USA in good stead as bilateral talks will give USA supreme bargaining power against other countries since it is the world's largest economy.  The new bilateral FTAs will have more economic benefits than TPP for USA and boost net exports (Nx).

Thus, stock markets have been trending upwards after Trump's win.  Japan stock market also benefitted a lot after Trump's win because of USD appreciation.  USD appreciation causes yen devaluation which will boost Japan's exports.

Pyramids in Antarctica!

Why is gold losing its lustre?

Gold prices are falling for 2 fundamental reasons.  First is the appreciation of USD.  As USD rises, it gets more expensive to buy gold because gold is priced in USD in international market.  Investors will get lesser gold for the same amount of USD.  The 2nd reason is the rise in interest rate.  As gold is a zero interest yielding asset, it will lose its favour once other assets have higher yielding powers.  Gold is favoured in negative interest and low USD environment compared to other assets.

Why are asian currencies depreciating?

For RMB devaluation, please read our previous post, for more information.

Asian currencies are depreciating because of USD rises.  USD is rising because of the expected interest rate increases in December 2016 and also in 2017.

Funds are leaving Asia and flowing to USA because of higher investment yields due to higher interest rates.  Therefore, countries with lower foreign reserves will suffer more depreciations.  This can be seen from SGD vs MYR.  Due to the anticipated interest rate movements, fund managers will be dabbling in interest related derivatives whereby USA has the most liquid market because of arbitrage opportunities.  This explains why funds are pulling out of Asia and moving to USA.

Business and investment costs will go up soon in Asia and these will create inflations.  Subsequently, the vicious interest rates cycle will begin to form in the world until recession takes place.

Latest update on 9 SG armoured tanks seized in HK port.

This was the first time Taiwan was tasked to ship the tanks back to SG and Taiwan screwed it up.  Previously, SG was responsible for all the shippings.  Taiwan was not supposed to en route to HK for this shipping trip but it entered HK port anyway and offloaded SG tanks.  SG tanks were secretly cordoned off in the port with surrounding containers to mask its presence but a whistle blower informed the port authority which resulted in the investigation and seizure.  Under HK laws, no military equipment can enter HK without authorization and HK has the right to seize such illegal military equipment.

Singapore port volume is expected to decline again in 2016!

The TEU in 2015 was 30.92m.  If we analyse the figures in 2016 as shown above, the expected TEU in 2016 will be around 30.5m.  Therefore, the 9% drop in 2015 is not an aberration but is the harbinger of further fall in 2016.  Look like China has succeeded in containing Singapore growth.

Singapore port handling capacity volume CAGR!

Singapore port handling capacity volume in TEU:
2011 = 29.94m
2012 = 31.65m
2013 = 32.6m
2014 = 33.87m
2015 = 30.9m

From 2011 (29.94m) to 2015 (30.9m), the CAGR is 0.79%.

29.94*(1+0.79%))^4 = 30.9

Once the CAGR becomes negative, Singapore will be in an extremely precarious position.

Is Singapore resilient enough for the upcoming economic downturn?

Singapore is a heavily entrepôt dependent country till now as it is a small country with no natural resources.  Yes, Singapore had been through the vicissitudes of economic cycles and had been resilient throughout all the economic and financial crises.  Singapore was able to weather all these harsh tribulations because its port had been increasing the port handling capacity volumes throughout the years.  However, Singapore had lost its world’s busiest port to Shanghai and its port volumes fell in 2015 by 9%.  I hope that this decline in port volumes in 2015 is just an aberration and not the harbinger of more declines in the future.  If the port volumes begin to decline, Singapore will find it hard to recover from any economic crises in the future.

When the port volumes are having positive CAGR annually, it means that businesses are sustainable in the foreseeable future despite any negative economic growth and Singapore can recover from any recession or crisis.  Conversely, when the port volumes are having negative CAGR annually, businesses become unsustainable because there will be declining demands for the ancillary services and products pertaining to the entrepôt trades.  In a nutshell, when Singapore loses its sea hub, it will also lose its financial hub and Singapore will retrograde into a 2nd or 3rd world country.

Why would fund manager buy bonds with negative yields?

Government bonds are often labelled as risk-free investments and are favourite financial instruments among fixed income fund managers.

Government bonds are IOUs issued by the government and the government pays interest rates on its IOUs just like bank loans.  However, some government bonds are sauntering into negative yields these few months.  What does this negative yield mean?  It means consumers have to pay interest rates to the government for buying the bonds.  In other words, you pay interest rates for lending money to someone instead of collecting interest rates for money lent out.  Many people cannot reconcile this negative bond yield with the traditional bank loan concept that is imbued in them.

Thus, why would fund managers be interested in these negative bond yields?  Surely, they have the financial literacy to know this is a money losing investment.  Well, fund managers know something that ordinary people don't.  Fund managers can perform the midas of turning negative yield into positive yield.  How is this possible?

Let's suss out the MIDAS!

Fixed income fund managers will sift out arbitrage opportunities in other interest rates related financial derivatives as a trade off to the negative bond yields by doing interest rate swaps in different currencies.

Example of USD-Yen interest rates swap:
A USD fund manager will borrow yen and lend out USD using Libor rates.

3-month USD Libor : 0.82%
3-month JPY Libor : -0.02%
USD-Yen interest rate swap spread: 0.64%
3-month JPY Bond yield: -0.24%

When a USD fund manager borrows yen, he will pay JPY Libor (-0.02%) and receive USD Libor (0.82%) for lending out USD with a spread of 0.64%.  Since the JPY Libor is a negative rate, the USD fund manager will receive interest of 0.02% instead of paying 0.02% interest.

Therefore, the net effect in carrying out this USD-Yen interest rates swap is 0.82% - (-0.02%) + 0.64% = 1.48%

Then the fund manager will invest in JPY bonds with -0.24 yield with the borrowed yen which means the net effect is 1.48% - 0.24% = 1.24% because he has to pay an interest rate to the government instead.  As you can see, the smart USD fund manager has managed to earn 1.24% instead of 0.82% when he invests only in USD Libor.

Since China has the largest USD foreign reserves, it has performed the USD-Yen interest rate swap and bought a lot of negative JPY bond yields these few months.

NATO unity is breaking up!

Turkey which is part of NATO is very unhappy about EU and is mooting the idea to create and join a China security bloc.  This will definitely create tensions in EU and NATO as Turkey gets closer to Russia and China.  Turkey maybe just issuing empty threat to gain more bargaining chips for its political interest.

Philippines economy is getting better when it gets cozy with China.

China is helping Philippines in infrastructures development and will be increasing FDI in the country too.  Furthermore, China will include Philippines in the new sea lane which will be part of the one-belt-one-road plan.

High interest rate environment is coming!

The spark of this vicious interest rate cycle is caused by the bond market selloff.  Bond price and yield are inversely related to each other because bond pricing formula is based on time value of money concept.

As bond prices decrease, bond yields will increase and vice versa.  Bond yields have been low for quite some time and some bond yields are even in negative territory now.  Consequently, investors are selling bonds to seek better returns or yields and this bond selloff causes yields to fall.  As China is USA largest creditor, China foreign reserves are shrinking because the total value of its USA bonds is declining.  Since foreign reserves make up the backbone of the Renminbi (RMB) strength, RMB devaluation is inevitable as investors will sell RMB because its backbone is weakening.  Thus, RMB has been declining to recent lows.

China is the de facto manufacturing factory of the world and the devaluation of RMB will cause inflation to escalate as China has to buy raw materials with higher prices for production.  In other words, China is going to export inflation to the world.  As inflation reaches the economic threshold levels of many countries, they will start to raise interest rates to contain inflation.  The rises in interest rates will cause bond yields to spike up and depress the bond prices further.

Upon sensing this, China will continue to sell USA bonds to cut its foreign reserve losses with the ensuing outcome of shrinking foreign reserves and more RMB devaluations .  This is the vicious interest rate cycle I am talking about.  Therefore, the foreboding of higher interest rates is real and will be coming soon.

My fear for Singapore has materialized.  Anti-Singapore sentiment has taken root in China and we can see this from the completion of Gwadar Port (Pakistan).    China has warned Singapore again after the opening of Gwadar port.  The first warning was to demand Singapore to stay out of South China Sea issue.  The latest warning is “Don’t think that ancient China had only 1 route!” which implies that China has created another route to ship oil and goods that will bypass Singapore port.

The oil shipment from Middle East and Africa to China will reduce time by 85% with this new route as China can ship the oil from Gwadar port to Xinjiang and vice versa.  This new route essentially bypasses the strait of Malacca and Singapore port totally.  Therefore, Singapore port handling capacity will begin to reduce further after the operation of Gwadar port.  This is the price to pay when we stand together with USA to contain China and China is containing Singapore’s growth through this vindictive move.  This is not the end but the beginning of a sinister plan to destroy Singapore because China does not regard Singapore as a friendly Chinese nation anymore.  We must give kudos to our ruling party for putting Singaporeans in this precarious predicament.  Do not expect USA to come to help Singapore as history has shown that USA will forsake its allies for its own interest.

Obviously the news media supported Hillary as her poll rating was higher than trump prior to the election.

However, we can see that US citizens place importance on integrity above all things from this election.  Trump definitely has more integrity than Hillary.

Hillary’s dubious record:
Her wealth buildup was questionable because she used her political position to gain wealth especially from using her Clinton’s foundation.

Her email scandal was questionable but was pardoned by FBI.  I must say FBI was too efficient in her investigation.  I wonder this efficiency is reserved for her only or it is across the board.

Her health was also questionable.

Last but not the least, Hillary has major trust issue in USA as close to 70% of US citizens don’t trust her and see her as a trustworthy person.  Thus, it is not surprising that she lost the election.

Another bad news is the building of the HSR (high speed railway) from KL to SG will be likely built by China instead of Japan with strong support from SG.  As we can see, SG influences will be eroded slowly in Asean as the days go by and SG has succeeded in making China not to regard SG as a Chinese nation.

How to calculate day and date using your fingers?

How to calculate day using your fingers?

31 oct 2016
The date must be minus by 7 or 14 or 21 or 28 if it is smaller than 7.
Therefore, 31 - 28 = 3
There is no need to minus if the date is smaller than 7.

For 2016, we need to add 5 to the number 3 = 8.  If this year is a leap year (29 feb exists), then we need to add 1 after feb, so it will be 6+3 = 9 and 5+3=8 for Jan & Feb.

For every additional year in the future (without leap year), we just increase the number by 1.  For e.g., 2017 is to add 6, 2018 is to add 7.  Once the number reaches 7, it will be reset to zero again and this cycle starts all over again.

Looking at the diagram, October is the first section of the index finger.  As we need to add 5 to 3 = 8, we just count the first section (october) as 1 and move downward 8 times which will end at the first section of index finger (Monday).

Thus, 31 october 2016 falls on Monday.

What date is last Sunday of October 2016

October is 1st section of index finger.
Since 2016 is to add 5, we will just count the first section (october) as 1 and move downward 5 times which will end at the 2nd section of the middle finger (Friday).  Thus, the next day will always be the 1st date or day of the month (1st oct).  Since we are trying to find the last Sunday, the first Sunday falls on the 2nd date which is 2nd October 2016.

Just do a simple calculation to get the date for last sunday.
1st sunday, 2 October 2016 (add 7 to get the next sunday)
2nd sunday, 9 October 2016 (add 7 to get the next sunday)
3rd sunday, 16 October 2016 (add 7 to get the next sunday)
4th sunday, 23 October 2016 (add 7 to get the next sunday), Continue to add 7 if less than 31
5th sunday, 30 October 2016

Therefore, the answer is 30 October 2016.

Please take note of leap year as you will need to apply the same logic above.

China is having leapfrog technology advancement.

J20 will no doubt beef up China's air force but the real revolutionary change will be China advancement in quantum physics.

No country has a profound understanding of quantum physics compared to China because China has developed working quantum satellite and radar.  Therefore, it is likely that China will be the first nation to produce a quantum computer and that will really change the whole world because of its computing power.

Solution to the maths puzzle.

The puzzle is a 3x3 matrix.  The fastest way to solve this is to divide 15 by 3 = 5.  Since 5 is a common number, we can do a permutation of 15 below.

1 - 5 - 9
2 - 5 - 8
3 - 5 - 7

4 - 5 - 6

5 which is a common number will be placed in the centre box so that other numbers can be connected to it.

We'll start with 1-5-9 in the middle row.  You can put this in the middle column or diagonal row.  Then we will move on with 2-5-8 and place the 2nd smallest number 2 beside 9.  The trick is to place a small number beside a large number.  Thereafter, you can easily fill up the matrix.
