Singapore stocks finish weaker on Wall St worries
WALL Street's unsure Monday session and an afternoon slide in the Dow futures were the main reasons behind the Straits Times Index's 27.55-point drop to 3,218.8 on Tuesday, a fall that was initially cushioned by a rise in the Dow futures. However, at 5pm, the latter had surrendered a 30-point rise and was on the verge of sliding into the red.
Turnover was a relatively heavy 2.1 billion units worth S$1.2 billion and, excluding warrants, the whole market recorded 198 rises versus 223 falls.
