[SEOUL] The South Korean won slid against the dollar on Tuesday, snapping a three-day gaining streak after the dollar rose broadly on worries about a debt default by cash-strapped Greece.

The won finished its onshore trade down 0.4 per cent at 1,083.4 per dollar, compared with the previous close at 1,079.2.

The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) edged down 0.1 per cent to 2,144.79 points, breaking a seven-day winning streak. It closed at 2,146.71 on Monday.
