viernes 17 de abril de 2015 07:07 GYT

BANGKOK, April 17 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
ended flat to weaker on Friday as Philippine stocks slid on
selling led by foreign funds and Singapore shares extended
losses with investors locking in gains in an overbought market.
    The Philippines' key index closed 0.02 percent lower
on Friday, the worst performing bourse on the week after it
dropped 2.2 percent from its record closing high of 8,127.48 the
previous Friday.
    Shares of Universal Robina Corp and GT Capital
Holdings were the top two losers on the day, with
foreign investors being net sellers, stock exchange data showed.
    Singapore's benchmark Straits Times Index eased 0.2
percent, trimming its gain on the week to 1.5 percent. Its
14-day Relative Strength Index was at 72.4 at the close on
Friday, hovering in an overbought territory of 70 or above for a
fifth straight day.
    Most other markets posted gains on the week, partly
reflecting hopes that an interest rate increase in the United
States could be imposed later than June, brokers said.
