TRADING volumes remained weak on Monday but the local market still managed to extend its winning streak to a seventh session.

The benchmark Straits Times Index inched ahead by 3.53 points or 0.11 per cent to 3,153.29. The index is inching closer to last year's close of 3,167.08 points - it is now only 13.79 points away from breaking even for the year.

On a sleepy session only three of the STI's 30 stocks moved more than 1 per cent in either direction.

Alcohol company Thai Beverage rose one cent or 1.9 per cent to 54 cents.
