Singapore shares finish weaker ahead of Trump's testimony to Congress


TRADING was cautious and quiet on Monday ahead of US President Donald Trump's address to the US Congress on Tuesday, which could provide some idea of the economic, tax and foreign policies he intends to pursue.

With Japan and Australia closing weaker, the Straits Times Index lost 8.41 points to finish at 3,108.62 as all three banks fell. Turnover was 2.2 billion units worth S$1.2 billion - down from last week's S$1.3 billion-S$1.4 billion average. Excluding warrants, the advance-decline score was 214/267.
