    Default I love to eat chestnut...

    I did not follow that much on chestnut..

    but just notice, he has so many posts, so fast, and seriously, I did not know what is going on...but at time...i feel blur...

    anyway, he makes this forum more interesting...

    perhaps, i shall get some chestnut at Aji Ichiban for him at the airport later

    One of the objectives in this trip is looking into the possibility of parking some money in RMB investment. The tight exchange control of buying and selling with a cap of RMB20,000 daily still put me off.
    In short, US$ will still be the common currency and more printing as well.

    that's why will not hold bonds > 5y, I think those buying NTUC Income 15y at 3.65% could be crying father mother if QEternityX2 comes

    as long as US still #1 military + rerserve / commodity trading currency in the world they can do anything they want

    you know Deng Xiao Peng last time wanted to get a small # Chinese to be rich first and they were very successful but at least those Chinese worked hard to get rich, what US Fed is doing now is to feed top 1% of US people to become richer so that they will start some biz or hire more people .. but if US Fed spoon feed you with money, why work hard?? After making profit, just convert to gold or hard assets in Singapore

    Ride at your own risk !!!

    Yep, agree. People who bought before this measure and managed to get long tenure loans at low floating rates should be counting their lucky stars.

    Not sure abt SH, but no cold sweat for some of the KR buyers, cos i understand quite a handful were bought by this grp of older folks from the nearby dialect clans/associations. They are v rich and own several old apts and shophouses in geylang, some of which hv been enbloc lately.

    Prob no longer v well versed in today's economy anymore, they r just looking for some where to park their $$ and grow their collections of assets. I m not surprised that they pay full in cash.

    there are always 2 groups of buyers ... the no sweat buyer owning multiple properties, stay in landed etc .. they could even take up equity loan just to play

    but if you are 40y old HDB upgrader family with less than 10k family income without rich parents, half way through paying HDB and just bought >1.2m property, will have cold sweat after MAS new ruling ...no??
