STI marginally low as Asian bourses retreat over lingering Greece crisis

SINGAPORE - Singapore equities ended marginally low on Thursday, even as Asian bourses retreated over fears about Greece's teetering debt reform talks.

The Straits Times Index was down 1.46 points to 3,349.87.

The index was propped up by the three banks, OCBC, DBS and UOB, which partly offset a slide in other blue chips including Singtel and Keppel Corp.

About 1.26 billion shares worth S$940 million in total changed hands.

The most actively traded stock was of Chinese information technology firm Armarda. Other actives included Debao Property and commodities firm Noble Group.

Losers outnumbered gainers 251 to 150.
