SE Asia Stocks-Slip ahead of U.S. jobs data; Political woes continue to mar Philippines

 Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday as traders remained on edge ahead of a key U.S. jobs report that could signal the timing of the next Federal Reserve rate hike.
Strong U.S. jobs numbers can fuel the expectations of a Fed rate hike in December and ripple through markets.  
The International Monetary Fund warned on Thursday that a disorderly reaction to possible U.S. interest rate hikes could
disrupt capital flows and heighten asset price volatility in Asia.   
Asian shares dropped with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  losing around 0.4 percent.  MKTS/GLOB  
Several U.S. economic indicators paint the picture of the economy being on a firmer footing, said Grace Aller of AP Securities, adding Fed officials are running out of reasons to further delay rate hikes.
Philippine shares  .PSI  posted their second straight weekly loss, with telecom stocks leading the decline.
"Duterte's antics is probably getting on to the nerves of investors", said Mikey Macainag of Sunsecurities in Manila.

"Everybody wants to be aligned with the U.S. but unfortunately our government is saying that we don't really need them. Let's
see what happens after the (U.S.) elections".  
Tensions on the political front rose after the Philippine defence minister said the military could manage without U.S. aid.
Singapore shares  .STI  slipped, sparked by a sell-off in telecom and consumer services stocks, while Vietnam  .VNI  shed more than 1 percent during the session.
Thai shares  .SETI  fell after four days of gains, but rose 1.4 percent on the week, while Malyasian shares  .KLSE  closed almost flat, but gained 0.8 percent on the week.
