Jun. 10 2019, Updated 10:07 a.m. ET

Hang Seng and Straits Times

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index posted its third straight gain on June 10. After ending last week marginally up, the index gained big today to end the day up 2.27%, even as more than 1 million citizens took to the streets to protest a new extradition law. According to the law, Hong Kong authorities can extradite people to countries it doesn’t have a formal extradition deal with—and that includes China. On June 7, the iShares MSCI Hong Kong ETF (EWH) gained 0.64% to end the week 1.6% higher.

Singapore’s Straits Times Index gained 0.8% on June 10, adding to last week’s 1.56% gain. The iShares MSCI Singapore ETF (EWS), which gained 0.82% on June 7, was up 2.32% last week.
