SINGAPORE'S key Straits Times Index fell 31.5 points to 2,788.73 as nerves set in with the US polls being too close to call as at 10.09am Wednesday.

Some 537 million shares worth S$374 million were done with 190 counters down and 85 up.

The key index opened higher on Wednesday with expectations of a win for Hillary Clinton but as the numbers poured in from early state exit polls in the US presidential election, the uncertainty of a clear winner may be rattling investing sentiment.
