SINGAPORE stocks opened 0.4 per cent lower on Monday, with the Straits Times Index shedding 10.95 points to 2,846.7 as at 9am.

About 36.3 million shares worth S$37.3 million in total changed hands, which worked out to an average unit price of S$1.03 per share.

Top stocks by value traded included Jardine Matheson, Keppel, Singtel, OCBC and DBS.

Losers outnumbered gainers 73 to 49, or about three down for every two up.
