Singapore shares close mixed; STI dragged lower by Jardine, banks

THE Straits Times Index on Wednesday fell 9.43 points to 3,236.65, dragged lower by weakness in the Jardine group and the three banks.

Turnover was a weak 1.9 billion units worth S$999 million. Excluding warrants there were 236 rises versus 184 falls throughout the whole market, so trading was more mixed than the index's reading might suggest.

This was despite yet another all-time closing high for all three major Wall Street indices - the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite.
