Johannesburg - Clothing retailer Truworths International [JSE:TRU] was the star performer on the JSE on Thursday morning after better-than-expected sales gave the share price a massive boost.

The gain of as much as 10% in the share price was however not enough to lift the market as a whole, as there were again sharp drops in the prices of some well-known commodity shares including Lonmin [JSE:LON], Anglo American [JSE:AGL] and Impala Platinum (Implats) [JSE:IMP].

The result was that the All-share index was 0.26% lower at 54 466 points and the Top 40 index lost 0.28% to trade at 48 945 points. The main culprit on Thursday morning was the resources sector which lost 3.67%, followed by gold with 2.71% as investors used the strong gains of the previous day to take profits.
