Is it true that the SGX will start allowing trades less than 100 shs next year?
If true, how sound a strategy would it be to buy expensive shares ($10 or more)  now in anticipation of a possible flood of small retail buyers in January.
Wouldn't that kind of action move the price up for a while at least?

Also, wouldn't the SGX itself become more attractive?

Yup, it will be implemented in Jan 2015.

Although I wouldn't count on it to push up share prices. If any, the effect is likely to be just short-lived and once the psychological effect wears out, shares prices will gravitate towards their underlying fundamentals.

It can potentially generate some revenue for SGX by making shares more accessible to a wider audience. That would likely also be SGX's motivation for such a move. However, it remains to be seen just how big the impact will be on their top and bottom line.

I think it should help to push up liquidity for the more expensive shares like keppel corp. There may be a sudden spike in demand for such expensive stocks and push up prices for a while.
