Singapore stocks finish weaker despite banks' support for STI
A LARGE push on the banks helped the Straits Times Index (STI) record a 5.16-point rise to 3,323.24 in a day when the broad market registered 314 falls against 168 rises, weakness brought on by worries over North Korea tensions.
Turnover soared to three billion units worth S$1.8 billion, also helped by elevated trading of the banks. In total, trading in the three was worth S$325.4 million, or almost 20 per cent of the whole market's dollar volume.
