SINGAPORE shares opened higher on Tuesday, buoyed by Wall Street's overnight gains at record highs, even as US President-elect Donald Trump said the United States will quit the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and a strong earthquake triggered a tsunami along Japan's north-east coast.

As at 9.01am, the benchmark Straits Times Index was 19.24 points or 0.68 per cent up at 2,835.91.

Gainers beat losers 100 to 26, with 55.2 million shares worth S$157.8 million changing hands.

Among the most active counters were Singtel, Ezion Holdings and DBS Bank.
