Singapore stocks finish weaker on Wall St worries

42760492 - 01_06_2017 - SGX-LISTINGS_.jpg

WALL Street's unsure Monday session and an afternoon slide in the Dow futures were the main reasons behind the Straits Times Index's 27.55-point drop to 3,218.8 on Tuesday, a fall that was initially cushioned by a rise in the Dow futures. However, at 5pm, the latter had surrendered a 30-point rise and was on the verge of sliding into the red.

Turnover was a relatively heavy 2.1 billion units worth S$1.2 billion and, excluding warrants, the whole market recorded 198 rises versus 223 falls.
