SINGAPORE'S benchmark Straits Times Index opened on Tuesday morning at 2,754.35 points, down 1.35 per cent or 37.57 points, at 9.03am.

The decline echoed Monday sell-offs in the US and Europe, along with falling commodities prices.

Some 65.8 million shares worth S$78.2 million changed hands. Gainers outnumbered losers 20 to 141.

Top stocks traded by value were DBS, ST Engineering, Singtel, UOB and OCBC. All opened lower.
