Share prices on the Singapore bourse fell marginally with the benchmark Straits Times Index ending the day lower by 2.48 points or 0.08 per cent to 3,057.86.
The decline, in line with most Asian markets, was led by weak macro economic signals from China and Japan and concerns that Spain's credit rating may be downgraded.
Even so, gainers led losers 198 to 173 while 426 counters were unchanged. Turnover stood at 1.5 billion shares worth $893.7 million.
