Singapore shares open flat on Monday


SINGAPORE stocks opened 0.07 per cent lower on Monday, with the Straits Times Index (STI) slipping 2.14 points to 3,041.94.

About 110.3 million shares worth S$74.1 million in total changed hands as at 9.00am in Singapore.

The most actively traded counter was Ezra, which fell by nearly 40 per cent to S$0.029 with 47.7 million shares changing hands. Other actives included Oceanus and SingHaiyi.

Gainers outnumbered losers 79 to 41.
