Straits Times Index dips 0.17% on US GDP surprise
SINGAPORE shares today saw a tepid end to the first trading month of 2013, dampened somewhat by downbeat United States economic growth data.
The benchmark Straits Times Index dipped 5.51 points, or 0.17 per cent, to 3,280.39.
Some 3.8 billion shares worth $2 billion changed hands.
Despite the dip, it was still a month to remember as the STI surged 3.65 per cent for the whole of January.
