It is required of me to discuss the functions of financial markets and evaluate the success of Singapore stock market in fulfilling the functions for this assignment.
Generally, I did not have much of a problem in discussing the functions of financial markets. Instead, I faced some difficulties in evaluating the success of Singapore stock market in fulfilling the various functions.
I did not fully understand some of the functions of the financial markets. Therefore, it became hard for me to find evidences and evaluate whether Singapore stock market did a good job in fulfilling the functions. Also, it was not easy finding direct evidences to support my evaluation of the Singapore stock market. I only managed to find indirect evidences, so the best I could do was to infer and mainly based my evaluation on my inferences.
From this, I learnt that I should make myself fully understand the concepts before proceeding to complete my assignments. This will enable the process of completing my assignments a lot smoother. I learnt the importance of inference skills as well. It is not possible to find direct evidences all the times. Whenever such situation occurs, I need make reasonable inferences based on the limited evidences I can find and try to make my evaluation as logical as possible.
