Singapore: STI Index (.STI) expected to find support
The Singapore stock market has tracked lower in two straight sessions, sliding almost 70 points or 2.3 percent in that span. The Straits Times Index now rests just beneath the 3,165-point plateau although it’s expected to find support on Tuesday.
The global forecast for the Asian markets is cautiously optimistic on the belief the coronavirus will soon be eliminated. The European markets were down and the U.S. bourses were up and the Asian markets figure to follow the latter lead.
The STI finished modestly lower on Monday as losses from the financial shares and industrial issues were mitigated by support from the properties.
A total of 1.50 billion shares changed hands with a turnover of 1.12 billion Singapore dollars (about 807.21 million U.S. dollars). gainers outnumbered Losers by 237 to 166.
The STI index went down 0.58 percent, or 18.33 points, to close at 3,163.15 on Monday.
