SINGAPORE stocks ended 0.1 per cent higher on Tuesday, with the Straits Times Index gaining 3.59 points to 2,933.44 ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee meeting in the United States on July 26 and 27.

But the bluechip index's gains did not mirror the broad market, where losers outnumbered gainers 209 to 167 or about five down for every four up.

About 1.11 billion shares worth S$1.03 billion in total changed hands, which worked out to an average unit price of S$0.92 per share.

The most actively traded counter was again Annica Holdings, similarly on Monday. It finished flat at S$0.001 with 208 million shares changing hands. The runner up was Katrina Group, a Singapore-based food and beverage operator of restaurants such as Bali Thai, which made its trading debut on the Catalist on Tuesday morning.
