KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) -- Singapore shares fell Wednesday as investors grappled with lower crude oil prices that weighed on rigbuilders and other firms servicing the industry in a broadly weak market. Malaysia eked out tiny gain.
The Straits Times Index closed down 0.3% at 3043.19 amid a 3.1% drop in Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings). The FBM KLCI ended up 0.1% at 1688.41 as national electric utility Tenaga Nasional's 0.8 % gain pushed the index higher in the final hour of trading, helping to offset a 4% loss in oil storage firm Dialog.
