Singapore bourse slips 1.3% on political risks in developed markets

Share prices on the Singapore bourse fell, with the benchmark Straits Times Index ending the day lower by 42.31 points or 1.32 per cent at 3,167.87.

The decline, in line with most Asian markets, was caused by a looming United States government shutdown and rising Eurozone political risks.

Losers led gainers 368 to 98 while 334 counters were unchanged. Turnover stood at 4.60 billion shares worth $1.74 billion.
