Singapore stocks finish weaker despite STI's rise


AS the first half of 2017 winds down to a close this Friday, the Straits Times Index (STI) on Tuesday rose 10.06 points to 3,219.53 in a relatively quiet but volatile session during which it closely tracked swings in the Dow futures. At 5pm, the latter stood just 18 points weaker after having lost about 50 points a few minutes earlier.

Turnover was an average 1.6 billion units worth S$936 million and excluding warrants there were 197 rises versus 240 falls, so the session was weak.
