SE Asia Stocks-Lower; Trump's tirade on China weighs
Southeast Asian stock markets, except Indonesia, closed lower on Friday, with investor sentiment in
export-reliant Asian economies jittery as U.S. President Donald Trump again accused China of being a currency manipulator.
In an exclusive interview with Reuters, Trump called China the "grand champions" of currency manipulation, hours after his new Treasury Secretary promised a more methodical approach to analysing Beijing's foreign exchange practices.
Trump's comments weighed on the already weakened sentiment across the region, where investors have chafed at the new U.S. administration's protectionist stance.
"Protectionist policies will definitely have a negative impact on the regional markets, especially on those
export-dependent on the U.S.," said Lexter Azurin, head of equities research at Manila-based Unicapital Securities Inc.
In Singapore, shares .STI ended 0.7 percent lower after the city-state reported factory output fell 6 percent from
December, more than double the 2.6 percent contraction predicted in a Reuters poll.
The index, however, posted a third straight weekly gain, adding 0.3 percent.
Oil and gas, and consumer stocks took a hit, with Genting Singapore GENS.SI dropping 2.4 percent and rig builder
Sembcorp Industries SCIL.SI off 2.7 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI slipped for a second day, ending 1 percent lower, as realtors SM Investments SM.PS and Ayala Land
ALI.PS shed 1.8 percent and 2.4 percent, respectively.
The index added 0.2 percent on the week.
Indonesia .JKSE was the region's only gainer, finishing 0.2 percent higher. It rose 0.7 percent on the week.
Malaysia .KLSE and Thailand .SETI dropped slightly, while Vietnam .VNI lost 0.3 percent.
