SE Asia Stocks-Subdued as caution prevails ahead of French elections
Southeast Asian stock markets trod with caution on Thursday in the absence of economic cues while uncertainties around the upcoming French elections muted global risk appetite.
The sense of caution was exacerbated by weakness on Wall Street and overnight decline in commodity prices, especially oil.
The French presidential elections will be closely watched as the stakes for investors are high, with two anti-EU, anti-euro candidates among the four seen still in contention to make it to a second round two weeks after Sunday's ballot.
Singapore shares .STI rose 0.4 percent, helped by industrials and consumer stocks, with Jardine Matheson Holdings JARD.SI gaining 2.3 percent.
Keppel Corp KPLM.SI fell 1.4 percent, while Sembcorp Industries SCIL.SI reversed earlier losses to add 0.3 percent.
Indonesian shares .JKSE , which see-sawed earlier in the session, closed down 0.2 percent.
The market was closed on Wednesday for gubernatorial elections in Jakarta.
Polls showed that incumbent Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, seen by some analysts as foreign investor-friendly, had
lost his bid for re-election by a big margin.
Philippine shares shares .SETI finished 0.5 percent higher as consumer and energy stocks powered through, with food
packaging firm San Miguel Corp SMC.PS rising 2.8 percent.
Vietnam shares .VNI moved within a tight range and finished down 0.6 percent, while Thailand posted a slight decline.
