Taipei, Jan. 26 (CNA) Shares in Taiwan fell on Tuesday, apparently affected by the 200-point decline in the Dow Jones Industrial Average overnight, but the market’s benchmark index remained above the 7,800-point mark, dealers said.

The weighted index on the Taiwan Stock Exchange closed down 65.48 points, or 0.83 percent, at 7,828.67 Tuesday on thin turnover of NT$61.54 billion (US$1.83 billion).

The market opened at 7,832.10 and dropped below the 7,800-point level at one point but recovered later in the session.

All major share sub-indexes lost ground, with the financial sub-index falling the most at 1.49 percent.     [FULL  STORY]
