Straits Times financial journalist Goh Eng Yeow launched his new book at the SGX Auditorium last Friday to a crowd of 250 readers and market enthusiasts.

The book contains a selection of Mr Goh's columns from 2010 to this year and is titled Market Smart: How To Grow Your Wealth In An Uncertain World.

Mr Goh, who is a senior correspondent, writes the Cai Jin column that appears on Mondays and contributes to the Small Change column on Sundays.

The new book is a collection of the market knowledge Mr Goh has gained over 30 years of tracking the stock market and is intended to help readers avoid potential pitfalls in their investment journey.

Mr Goh, who spent over an hour signing books last Friday, said: "In my first two books, I explained my approach towards investments. For the latest book, I get down to explaining to investors how I identify outperforming stocks and market trends."

Singapore Press Holdings chief executive Ng Yat Chung said in the book's foreword: "I have followed his columns in The Straits Times for years. As a longstanding reporter on investing, Eng Yeow has a ringside seat to some of the most gripping financial dramas of our lifetime."

Singapore Exchange chief executive Loh Boon Chye said: "Eng Yeow, one of Singapore's most established financial writers, not only shares responsible and profitable trading strategies to the benefit of retail investors, but also highlights red flags to pay attention to."

The book, published by Straits Times Press, costs $22 and is available at major bookstores as well as www.stpressbooks.com.sg.
