Singapore shares open 1.37% lower on Tuesday

A STEEP Wall Street rebound overnight on dovish Federal Reserve comments failed to bring cheer to the Singapore stock market when it started trading on Tuesday, after a one-day public holiday.

At 9.02am, the benchmark Straits Times Index was down 39.47 points or 1.37 per cent at 2,833.86.

Some 92.4 million shares worth S$99.6 million were traded, with losers outpacing gainers 151 to 34.

Elsewhere in Asia, stocks joined the US equity rebound in the morning trading on the back of a continued dovish tone from Fed policymaker Lael Brainard in her approach to US monetary policy. This followed a sell-off on Monday stoked by rising bond yields and talk that US rates might rise as early as next week.Click Here To Register For Free Trial Services OR Give A Missed Call : +6531581402 Follow Us On Twitter : www.twitter.com/epicresearchsg Like Us On Facebook : www.facebook.com/EpicResearchSingapore Need Any Assistance Feel Free To Mail Us at : info@epicresearch.sg
