Let me first congratulate myself on accumulating some decent paper losses! I have waited a long time for this. Just to be clear, I have long-term faith in my portfolio and thus, have not and will not engage in any panic selling.

To be frank, it didn’t affect me much physically and mentally. I eat well and I sleep well. I went about my daily routine and grabbed the opportunity to purchase a little bit of STI ETF.

The 20% drop/correction didn’t exactly have the impact I was expecting. I truly thought I that might feel a little bit more anxious than what I experienced. Why is that so?

Have the books I read taught me that such an event is nothing to be afraid of? That it should be embraced instead of feared?


P/E ratio of STI ETF isn’t that high at the moment, which gives an idea of how expensive the SG market is. SPDR STI ETF currently spots a P/E ratio of 11.45 with a distribution yield of 3.3%. No one knows whether the worst is over. Sit tight, and hang on. Things will get better eventually.
