Let's assume stock X has 1% growth for 5 days with initial price of $100: Day0: 100.00 Day1: 101.00 Day2: 102.01 Day3: 103.03 Day4: 104.06 Day5: 105.10 // ( 5.10% ) We have a 7x DLC of the stock X worth $2: Day0: 2.00 Day1: 2.14 Day2: 2.29 Day3: 2.45 Day4: 2.62 Day5: 2.81 // ( 40.5% ) While the stock price increases 1% daily, the 7xDLC moves (1%x 7) daily. Above is an example of positive compounding. Do note that your losses can also compound similarly.

Debt securities refer to bonds. You can purchase them if your brokerage has access to the US markets.

For norm ETFs, it is made up of a basket of stocks. In the case of bonds, is that how bonds ETFs are like as well? If that is the case, isn't it problematic because bonds are constantly maturing?

A more direct answer to whether its problematic is "yes, but not because bonds are constantly maturing." The real issue is balancing the return and the duration of a bond portfolio, that is, the sensitvity of the portfolio to interest rate cahnges. The use of different maturities is necessary to acheive the desired yield of the portfolio while maintaining an palatable duration

As a student with little cash at hand, how should I begin my investment journey? I've read a lot of personal finance articles so I am familiar with terms like ETFs, Index Funds, bonds etc.?

Hey there! Well, honestly it takes time, it's great that you are building up your investing knowledge, keep it up! As a start, you can consider POSB Invest Saver Regular Savings Plan, where they will buy in to STI ETF/ABF Bonds every month based on the amount you allocated. Then, maximize your bank account through DBS Multiplier, UOB One, SC Jumpstart etc.. That's another way to let your money grow. And last, see how you can further gain more cash - for me I gave tuition in addition to my full time job. I too had little cash in the beginning so I have to work hard to generate more to invest.

I have approx $7300, looking to buy into tech stocks in US - is it a good time now, or is recession going to hit soon so I should invest in defensive industries?

You should not time the market. You will need to do fundamental analysis to understand if your stock is worth buying. Then if the price lower than your projected value, it is time to buy. What you can do for recession is to build a all weather portfolio to cushion your loss. You will want to avoid selling your stocks. Have some money to act as warchest (your emergency fund is accounted to last your recession period)

What is the minimum amount of money that you will need to buy your very first stock in the stock market?

Thanks for the question, there are in fact many who have the same query as you. It really depends on the stock that you intend to buy. Talking about blue chips-wise, after the reduction in minimum purchase size of 1000 shares to 100 shares in 2015, it has significantly reduced the starting capital required. Just head on to SGX.com, whatever prices you see at the Last Done column, multiply it by 100 and that is the minimum amount you're required to foot. However, do take note of the commissions per transaction which can be found here as done up by Seedly https://blog.seedly.sg/the-ultimate-cheatsheet-cheapest-stock-brokerage-in-singapore/ In a nutshell, if you utilise the CDP account a.k.a. Cash Account in brokerage firms, it costs minimum $25 or 0.28% (whichever is higher) per transaction excl. SGX fees. So all in all, if you were to buy and sell a stock, it'd cost a total of $60. Now, if we look at DBS which is trading at $25.29 (as of time of writing), if one were to purchase the minimum amount, which is 100 shares, it'd be $25.29 x 100 = $2529. After addition of the commissions, in order to breakeven, you're required to sell DBS at $2589. Therefore, the share price has to rise approximately 3% before you can bag a profit.

Why was there a sharp sudden drop in price for Coca Cola in Aug 2012 from $81 to $37? The price is averaging around $44. Is it a good stock to buy? Thanks?

Coca Cola (KO) is a defensively stock. I bought it prior to Aug 2012 and the reason why I bought it is because Warren Buffett owns it. I know it is a silly reason but it helps kickstart my portfolio. The 'huge drop' is due to 2 to 1 share split. Some financial websites are misleading as they show the 'huge drop' whereas, I believe there are also some other websites that also include such splits prior to Aug 2012 so that we can track the share prices better.

Dear all. What will be the best way for Singapore retail investors to invest in global ETFs such as the S&P500? Thank you.
Find a broker with the cheapest fees that provides London Stock Exchange. Invest in the Ireland domiciled ETF will reduce the US withholding dividend tax from 30% to 15%. You can look at VUSD and CSPX.
