Taking profits for STI ETF & doubling my stocks purchase to close to SGD$70k in Tiger Brokers

When people talked about STI being the Super Terrible Index, I laughed. It was such an apt description cause the people around me who invested into STI via DCA years back are still seeing red.  Despite that, I decided to take it up when it was hovering around $2.50+ in Sept 2020 through  Tiger Brokers . I reckoned that Singapore economy would one day rebound. When would that "one day" happen? I'm not sure. But I figured if it continues that way for the next 1-2 years, I'll just accept the dividends that comes along, since interest rates from saving accounts SUCKS. I didn't expect STI to cross $3.00 4 months later.  I had also planned to sell it off once it hits $3.00.  Not sure if it was a sign - I came across this, and I quote "A gain is not a real again unless its a realized gain". So I decided to sell off my shares in STI ETF, for a ~18% profit.  All through Tiger Brokers.   You can check out the fee comparison on stocks purchases between Tiger and D
