SINGAPORE - Singapore shares returned to positive territory on Tuesday following a positive lead on Wall Street, even as various other regional bourses ended in the red on weak Chinese data.

The local benchmark Straits Times Index gained 9.27 points, or 0.28 per cent, to 3,327.67.

Several Asian bourses closed lower after the release of a HSBC report showing that the performance of China's service sector fell to a record low in July.

Some 1.62 billion shares valued at $1.11 billion changed hands in Singapore.
