Singapore shares end week up nearly 2 points

EXPECTATIONS of a better non-farm payroll and unemployment data from the United States helped to give local stocks a push, even as some local earnings were weaker and growth remained modest for China's services sector in October.

The benchmark Straits Times Index (STI) edged up a touch on Friday to 3,382.31, up 1.81 points or 0.05 per cent. This brings the total loss for the week to about four points.

Turnover for the day came in thin at two billion worth S$0.9 billion or an average of S$0.45 a unit. Excluding warrants, gainers beat losers 211 to 207, indicating mixed trading.
