The market’s benchmark index, the Taiex, fell more than 100 points in the first half hour after the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Friday that it was taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s e-mail use, narrowing her lead in the race.

It ended down 16.8 points, or 0.18 percent, at 9,290.12, after moving between 9,194.48 and 9,314.34, on turnover of NT$58.94 billion (US$1.87 billion). [FULL STORY]
