US markets closed positive yesterday night but on a thin volume help by tech sector.  Asian bourses were mixed for the day with Nikkei closed +0.07%, SSE +0.22% and HSI -0.01%.  STI opened negative, swinging between positive and negative region but managed to close +1.32 points, the 7th successive gain in a row as investors were uncertain of buying or selling.  Concern of market might pull back anytime coupling with ECB might do a rate hike tonight weighed on investors.  The flattish signal from US future and European opening did not help the sentiment either.
