SE Asia Stocks-Most fall ahead of cenbank policy meetings; Thailand gains
19 March 2019
source: reuters.com
    * Indonesia snaps four sessions of gains
    * Thailand up after 3 sessions of losses

    By Shreya Mariam Job
    March 19 (Reuters) - Thai shares rose nearly 1 percent in
thin trade on Tuesday, snapping three straight sessions of
falls, while most other Southeast Asian markets ended lower
ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting and a slew of
regional central bank meetings this week.
    With global economic growth appearing to slow, traders were
focused on the Fed, which kicks off a two-day policy meeting
later in the day, for clues about the likely path of U.S.
borrowing costs.  MKTS/GLOB 
    Index heavyweights PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  and Airports of Thailand
Pcl  AOT.BK  drove the rally in Thailand  .SETI  with both of
them gaining 1 percent each.
    About 13.4 million shares changed hands on the SET index,
compared to the 30-day average volume of 13.06 billion shares. 
    Investors now await the Bank of Thailand's policy meeting
and the country's February trade data for further clues. 
    The central bank is expected to keep its benchmark policy
rate steady on Wednesday for a second straight review after a
hike in December, a Reuters poll showed, in a bid to support a
slowing economy while inflation remains low.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N20U1H9
    Customs-cleared annual exports in February may have dropped
1 percent but the country likely recorded a trade surplus of
$0.14 billion, a Reuters poll showed.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N2161AM
    Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  closed lower for the first time in
five sessions ahead of the central bank's policy meeting on
Thursday.
    "Investors are not overly excited about Bank Indonesia's
upcoming rate decision as the monetary policy direction is
likely to be decided after the Presidential election next
month," said Taye Shim, head of research at Mirae Asset
Sekuritas.
    The central bank is widely expected to keep interest rates
unchanged for a fourth straight month, despite inflation falling
to its lowest pace in nearly a decade, a Reuters poll showed.

    Consumer stocks dragged the index lower with Astra
International Tbk Pt  ASII.JK  and Charoen Pokphand Indonesia
Tbk Pt  CPIN.JK  skidding 1.4 percent and 2.6 percent,
respectively.
    An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks  .JKLQ45 
declined 0.6 percent.
    Vietnam stocks  .VNI  were the worst hit, with losses
concentrated in financials.
    Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development
of Vietnam  BID.HM  and Vietnam Prosperity Joint Stock
Commercial Bank  VPB.HM  shed 1.9 percent and 2.7 percent,
respectively. 
    Philippine shares  .PSI  dropped 0.4 percent, dragged by
real estate and consumer stocks. 
    Robinsons Retail Holdings Inc  RRHI.PS  dipped 4.7 percent,
while Robinsons Land Corp  RLC.PS  slid 2.9 percent.
