I received mixed signals for the Hong Kong market today. The HK stock indices suffered a rout (HSI -1.5%, HSTECH -2.41%, HSCEI -1.58%) but my portfolio did pretty well despite the indices rout. This was partly thanks to 257.HK (China Everbright Environment) which surged 9.47% again after the earlier surge I enjoyed 1 day after purchase. Another penny stock that I bought earlier surged 16.07% today followed by an earlier surge of >7.5% on 8Sep2021. This penny stock is 1205.HK (Citic Resources Ltd). 1205.HK has already gone up a lot. I am enjoying a gain of over 25% after holding the stock for only about a week (bought on 8Sep2021). I do not think it is safe to buy at this point. Maybe after a price retreat.

Disclosure: Do not follow my stock picks and get unrealistic expectations when I reveal market timing stock picks that work like 1205.HK. For each impressive winner, I have more losers. I am profitable over time because I make much more money from the few winners to compensate for the many losers which I usually lose small.

Penny stocks are risky bets. When they work, they shoot up quickly a lot. When they fail, they crash quickly a lot too.

Due to the weak HK stock indices, I will be extra-cautious in buying HK stocks.

Action for HK market (risk-on):
- Look actively for buying opportunities to place on watchlist.
- Buy when good stocks appear on watchlist and price is within buy range.

It was a good day for China portfolio. This is a good sign after the losses on the previous trading day. It indicates that the rally in China market is still strong.

Action for China market (risk-on):
- Look actively for buying opportunities.
- Buy when good stocks appear on watchlist and price is within buy range.

If my portfolio is any indication, Singapore market is slipping into a bear market. My portfolio has been losing money lately, although slowly.

Action for Singapore market (risk-off)
- Get the stops ready and sell remaining stocks in portfolio on weakness.
