Dec 3 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan stocks slipped to a three-month low on Monday in thin volume as high interest rates weighed on sentiment with investors shunning risky assets and moving in to high-yielding government securities.

The Colombo Stock Exchange's main index ended 0.25 percent or 13.54 points, weaker at 5,337.71, its lowest close since Sept. 4.

"These is negative sentiment among local investors," said one broker, who declined to be identified, adding that high interest rates had led to a lack of liquidity.

The yield for 364-day T-bills gained for a seventh consecutive week at an auction on Wednesday. Analysts say investors have been shifting to fixed deposits from equities since the central bank kept key policy rates at three-year highs on Nov. 9.,

The day's turnover was 173.3 million rupees ($1.33 million), well below this year's daily average of 900 million rupees. Foreign investors bought a net 7.96 million rupees worth of shares, extending the net foreign inflow this year to 35.5 billion rupees.

The rupee closed firmer at 129.30/35 to the dollar compared with Friday's close of 130.24/28 on foreign inflow into a foreign bank, dealers said. ($1 = 130.1500 Sri Lanka rupees) (Reporting by Shihar Aneez and Ranga Sirilal; Editing by Robert Birsel)

The Colombo bourse continued to tumble on Monday with all three indices closing in the red with turnover reaching a low Rs. 173.3 million. The Colombo Stock Exchange fell 12.13 percent year-to-date.

The All Share Price Index closed 0.25 percent lower, down 13.54 points to 5,337.71 while the Milanka Price Index of more liquid stocks closed 27.74 points lower at 4,841.09, down 0.57 percent. The S&P SL20 closed 8.36 points lower, down 0.36 percent at 2,931.40.

The volume of shares traded reached a little more than 10.5 million.

"The indices ended lower for a second consecutive trading day mainly on the back of sharp drops in a few large caps. Subdued activity levels were dominated by trades on JKH and PABC, which collectively accounted for over 25% of market turnover," John Keells Stockbrokers said.

Foreign purchases amounted to Rs. 40.43 million resulting in a net inflow of Rs. 7.96 million.

JKH closed 0.67 percent lower at Rs. 207.10 after 119,411 shares changed hands during the day.

PABC saw a little more than 1.1 million shares change hands, closing 0.56 percent higher at Rs. 18.10.

There was interest in DFCC and DIST as well.

Renuka Shaw Wallace (COCO.R) was the biggest loser closing 80 percent lower at 10 cents. CALF (Capital Finance) which debuted yesterday came down 67.50 percent to close at Rs. 2.60.

ODEL (R) closed 40 percent lower at 30 cents.

Mercantile Shipping was the biggest gainer, up 17.85 percent to Rs. 165. Metropolitan Resource Holdings closed 14.28 percent higher at Rs. 20.90.
