Singapore shares end week on strong note
The local market on Friday continued to shrug off the reduction in United States money printing, outperforming the region in the process.
The Straits Times Index (STI) rose 24.25 points or 0.79 per cent to 3,094.48.
One of the few markets to do better was Sydney, with a 1.2 per cent rise.
Those that underperformed Singapore's bourse included Tokyo, up just 0.07 per cent, Hong Kong which lost 0.33 per cent and Shanghai which fell 2.02 per cent.
