SE Asia Stocks - Thai index rebounds, but fall in CP All weighs
Thailand's benchmark index ended marginally higher on Thursday weighed down by selloffs in shares of CP All CPALL.BK , while most others in Southeast Asia were range-bound ahead of the European Central Bank's policy decision.
Bangkok's SET index .SETI was up 0.09 percent, reversing earlier falls to the lowest since Aug. 26. Recently-battered large-caps such as Advanced Info Service ADVANC.BK and Siam Cement SCC.BK led the rebound.
Shares of retailer CP All dropped more than 5 percent, the worst single-day slide since 2013.
Investors unloaded the stock after the country's market regulator said on Wednesday it had fined top executives at two of the country's biggest firms -- CP All and telecoms firm True Corporation TRUE.BK for insider trading.
True Corp shares eased 0.6 percent.
Asian stocks slipped and the dollar advanced on Thursday after hawkish comments from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reinforced the case for an interest rate hike later this month.
The ECB is expected to ease policy further on Thursday, delivering a cocktail of measures that could include a deposit rate cut and changes to its asset-buying programme.
