Singapore shares fall on profit-taking, lack of fresh leads
SINGAPORE shares dipped on Thursday as investors took some money off the table after Wednesday's bumper gains.
The benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) slipped 5.24 points or 0.17 per cent to 3,145.41, giving up a small part of its 29.77-point increase on Wednesday.
There was not much to push the market in either direction, especially after the mixed session overnight on Wall Street.
Minutes from the December meeting of the United States Federal Reserve had yielded few surprises.
