Singapore stocks post weekly losses, Malaysian equities gain

News from U.S. dictates trends for markets this week

KUALA LUMPUR (Nikkei Markets) -- Singapore shares declined this week, tracking losses in most other major Asian markets. Malaysian equities rebounded from nine-month lows.

On Friday, Singapore's Straits Times Index rose 1.1% to 3,424.64, recovering from the lowest levels in three weeks, on the back of positive U.S. cues and robust China data. The day's gains helped the benchmark gauge to trim its losses for the week to 0.6%.
