SINGAPORE - Local stocks opened flat on Tuesday (Nov 28), with the Straits Times Index retreating 0.35 point to 3,436.01 as at 9.03am.

About 94.2 million shares worth S$48.1 million in total changed hands.

Gainers outnumbered losers 69 to 49.

The index's open followed world stocks, which mostly fell Monday on weakness in petroleum-linked equities and as a strong euro weighed on European bourses.

Equity markets in London, Paris, Frankfurt and Tokyo all fell, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq retreated from records in the US.
