SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down ahead of Fed, BOJ meetings; Thai shares up
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell for a second straight day on Tuesday, led by Indonesia, as cautious investors adopted a wait and watch approach ahead of central bank meetings in the United States and Japan later this week.
However, the Thai SET index .SETI and the Vietnam index .VNI bucked the trend, helped by commodities and financial shares respectively.
Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE ended 1.3 percent down at a more than two-week closing low, led by
financial stocks, while poor earnings expectations dragged large caps lower.
Jakarta-based Trimegah Research said in a note it expects Indonesian conglomerate PT Astra International Tbk ASII.JK and
heavy equipment distributor United Tractors UNTR.JK to post disappointing earnings for the March quarter.
Astra shares ended 2 percent down while those of United Tractors fell 3.1 percent.
"The market sentiment remained weak with selling pressure across the board as worries continued on the first quarter
earnings outlook and ahead of the Fed meeting this week," said John Teja, director at Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.
Bank of Japan policymakers are likely to discuss further easing when they meet on Wednesday and Thursday.
The U.S. Federal Reserve, which lifted its benchmark overnight interest rate in December for the first time in nearly
a decade, is expected to hold interest rates steady this week.
The Singapore share index .STI fell 0.2 percent to a near two-week low, led by financial stocks.
Malaysia's stock index .KLSE closed 1.3 percent weaker as Kuala Lumpur's stock market suffered a $56.10 million net foreign outflow on Tuesday.
Philippines Composite Index .PSI was 0.5 percent weaker.
The Thai SET index closed 0.7 percent up, while Vietnam closed 1.2 percent higher, with volumes rising to more than a five-week high.
