COLOMBO, July 5 (Reuters) - Sri Lankan shares hit a two-month low on Friday, extending losses for a third straight session, led by foreign selling in market heavyweight John Keells Holdings amid investor concerns over the rupee's weakness, brokers said.

The main share index ended down 0.41 percent or 24.99 points at 6048.18, its lowest close since May 5. It has fallen 1.5 percent in the last three sessions.

The rupee has been on a decline since early last month as foreign investors exited from T-bonds as they have done in other emerging markets after the outlook on the U.S. economy improved, making U.S. Treasury yields more attractive.

Brokers said the cut in Sri Lanka's foreign currency sovereign rating outlook by Moody's also weighed on foreign investor sentiment.

Turnover was at 570.2 million rupees ($4.37 million) on Friday, less than this year's daily average turnover of about 1 billion rupees, according to provisional exchange data. John Keells lost 2.24 percent to 248.20 rupees. ($1 = 130.6000 Sri Lanka rupees)

The Colombo bourse yesterday lost more steam with continuing investor concern on the rupee’s weakness with nearly half the day’s business volumes accounted for by crossings in United Motors, brokers said.

The market closed posting a turnover of Rs.570.2 million, down from the previous day’s Rs.738.1 million, and both indices down – the All share by 24.99 points (0.41%) and S&P SL20 by 12.86 points (0.38%) with 123 losers strongly outpacing 70 gainers while 119 counters closed flat.

Foreign purchases amounted to Rs. 340.32 million, leading to a net inflow of Rs. 278.91million.

"The ASPI ended lower for a third consecutive day amid declines across most sectors. Block trades on UML accounted for over 40% of the day’s turnover. The market also saw crossings on KHL and LLUB," John Keells Stockbrokers said.

Block trades in John Keells Hotels, United Motors and Chevron accounted for Rs.291 million of the day’s business volumes with the bulk generated by United Motors where 2 million shares were crossed at Rs.121 in a deal worth Rs.242 million.
