THE Singapore market inched up on Tuesday, continuing a two-week run that has added almost 4 per cent to the bourse.

With United States markets closed overnight for the Presidents' Day holiday, there was not much to guide investors searching for market direction.

The benchmark Straits Times Index spent the session trading in a narrow range before managing to close at 3,070.78 points, an increase of 1.5 points or 0.05 per cent.

Market turnover was nothing to shout about, at only $870 million which was lower than Monday's $1.03 billion.
