SE Asia Stocks-Philippines hits 2-week closing low, Thailand edges up

Among Southeast Asian markets, Philippine shares  .PSI  fell the most on Friday, dragged by industrials, while other markets in the region ended flat to lower, as investors continued to digest U.S. Federal Reserve's outlook on interest rates.  
"The regional currencies were weakening against the dollar after the nudge in U.S. interest rates. I think that is one of
the leading indicators on why Asian equities trimmed their gains from morning's trade," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based Asiasec Equities Inc.
Sentiment was also affected by Wall Street, with a recent slump in technology stocks worsening further on Thursday,
dragging on major U.S. indexes.  
Philippine shares posted their lowest close in over two weeks, pulled down by index heavyweights SM Investment Corp  SM.PS  and Aboitiz Equity Ventures  AEV.PS .
The index recorded its biggest weekly percentage drop since March 10.
Early in the day, the Philippine central bank revised its current account balance forecast for this year, predicting a
deficit for the first time since 2002, on expectations of surging imports. Data showing April remittances dropped 5.9
percent from a year ago had also dented sentiment.   
Indonesia  .JKSE  extended its declines to end 0.9 percent lower, with Elang Mahkota Teknologi Tbk Pt  EMTK.JK  plunging 16.4 percent.  
Earlier in the session, Malaysia  .KLSE  hit a two-year high, adding 0.1 percent for the week in its fourth straight
weekly gain.
Singapore  .STI  ended the day marginally lower, dragged down by industrials and consumer discretionary stocks. The index posted its biggest weekly fall since May 19.
Singapore's exports shrank for a second straight month in May, with non-oil domestic exports (NODX) from the city-state dropping 1.2 percent.  
Thailand  .SETI  was the biggest gainer in the region, despite the central bank saying its foreign exchange reserves
fell to $184.1 billion in the week ended June 9, down from $185.0 billion a week ago. 

  Market                  Current        previous      Pct Move
