SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down; Fed, BOJ meetings awaited

All Southeast Asian stock markets ended weaker on Monday, led by Singapore, as cautious investors waited
for cues ahead of central bank meetings in the United States and Japan, that will be held later this week.
Bank of Japan policymakers are likely to discuss further easing when they meet on Wednesday and Thursday, while the U.S. Federal Reserve, which lifted its benchmark overnight interest rate in December for the first time in nearly a decade, meets on Wednesday.  
The Singapore share index  .STI  closed down 1.4 percent to a near-two-week low, while Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index (JCI)  .JKSE  closed 0.7 percent weaker, both led by financials.
"JCI retreated in line with regional direction, and volatility will remain ahead of central banks meeting in Japan
and the U.S. later this week," said John Teja, director at Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.  
"I think the Fed rate will leave interest rates unchanged on Thursday as global economic and financial developments
apparently are weighting on the Fed decision."
Malaysia's stock index  .KLSE  fell 0.2 percent, while the Philippines Composite Index  .PSI  ended down 0.07 percent.  
The Thai SET index  .SETI , the best performer so far this year, retreated from early gains to close down 0.2 percent, and   Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  also dipped 0.2 percent, snapping a two-day winning streak, as losses in the real estate sector offset early gains in several big caps.
