Top 5 Singapore Exchange (SGX) stocks of the week

Here are the best performing STI Index constituents for the week ending 29 May 2020, based on IG data.

Asia’s financial markets found themselves in a slight rut this week, with protests reignited in Hong Kong as the Chinese government officially passed an unpopular national security bill concentrated on the financial hub on Thursday 28 May 2020.

Renewed US-China tensions in the form of trade sanction threats in response to the bill had also resulted in the Hang Seng Index shaving off 2% of its valuation.

Singapore’s blue-chip stock benchmark Straits Times Index (STI Index) was also somewhat impacted, falling 0.25% in the process. The STI closed the week at 2509, based on IG trading data.

Here are the Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) top-performing equities for the week ending 22 May 2020.
