The STI Today
And so it goes on. It was yet another volatile week for the Straits Times Index as it danced in tandem with rises and falls in oil prices, the Dow futures, and to a slightly lesser extent, stock prices in Hong Kong and Shanghai - extending a run of volatility that stretches back many months. On Friday, thanks to a heavy push on Singtel that added 20 points to the STI, the index gained 64.72 points or 2.5 per cent at 2,623.21, enabling it to reduce its loss for the week to just 6 points.
