MANILA, Jan. 6 — Philippine shares retreated Friday, dropping by 35.55 points or 0.78 to close at 4,483.36 to snap a five-day rally.

More than 2.981 billion shares valued at P5.01 billion were traded.

Only mining and oil defied the downtrend, which added 189.58 points or 0.77 percent to its portfolio.

Local trading fell along with Asian shares following the decline of Euro against dollar reflecting the crisis' effects such as diminishing clout of European banks.(PNA) RMA/MPC
