STI adds 6 points on Tuesday to end at 3,329.03

INSPIRED by Wall Street's record close and higher oil prices, most Asian equities extended their rally on Tuesday including the benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) which added 5.97 points or 0.18 per cent to close at 3,329.03.

Turnover came in at an uninspiring 1.5 billion units worth S$1.1 billion, similar to the one billion average the market has recorded this year. Excluding warrants, the advance-decline score was 201 to 228.

The STI gains came after shrugging off a weak performance in Singapore's non-oil domestic exports, which came in at -1.1 per cent year-on-year in September 2017, missing the 12.7 per cent consensus.

Counters of Singtel, DBS and Global Logistic were among the top ones by value traded.
