US-China Trade War will still continue because the sore problem is not resolved. But expect the stock markets to continue riding upwards. So far, haven't see the signs of blowing up yet.

You have to do your own homework but i would say that both will burst together in the event of recession. It depends on whether you can hold on for long and whether you prefer dividend yields opposed to capital gains.

Does anyone know anything about UOB's RISP and how it compares to DBS's Invest-Saver? Is there a minimum initial lump sum investment of $1k for DBS? Is it possible to halt monthly contributions after a while or will there be penalties for it?

no min. $1000 for DBS. yes, generally can pause and stop investing without penalties. https://blog.seedly.sg/regular-shares-savings-rss-plan-faq/ In general i feel UOB's RISP not as strong as DBS and OCBC

2nd Property for investment returns, is it still worth it given the ABSD is 12%. Your property needs to grow 12% just to match this initial "loss". Go for it or just buy stocks/ REITS?

I would advise against it. Interest rates can increase dramatically in the event of overheating. $1mil loan at 2% is $20k yearly, $1.667k monthly. Loan at 5% is $4,167 monthly. And if recession hits and one of you or your partner loses the job, would you have the cash cushion to tie over the period or be willing to force-sell the ppty at a huge loss? Go for REITs can bail out anytime using just 1 click.

Can i know what range of 3 digits you are looking at? Actually i am thinking of creating those more basic kind of stock investing course as well. Appreciate if you can let me know what you prefer in the curriculum too. Some ideas off my head: - why need to invest - financial jargon - financial ratios & meaning - how to use the tools - common mistakes

If the govt really wants to cool the private property market, why not put a stop to allowing CPF for private property? This will stop alot of ppl selling HDB for millions then buying private property
