SE Asia Stocks-Largely down; Concerns on Trump policy speech loom

Southeast Asian stock markets ended soft on Tuesday, in line with Asian peers, as investors were guarded ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump's policy speech and due to some month-end book-squaring.
Markets have been awaiting more details on Trump's proposed stimulus plans to judge if they would boost inflation and economic growth, and add to the case for higher U.S. interest rates.  
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS  erased earlier modest gains and edged down slightly.   
"His speeches are always fire and brimstone so it's going to be like that again and there's going to be a lot of superlatives ... that's what people are anticipating," said Joseph Roxas, president of Manila-based Eagle Equities Inc.
"There should really be not much impact for Southeast Asia.

Investors are just making sure, taking some money off the table.

It's also just book squaring at the end of the month."
Philippines stocks  .PSI  ended 0.3 percent lower, posting a monthly fall of 0.2 percent, as industrial and financial stocks pulled down the index.
DMCI Holdings  DMC.PS  lost more than 3 percent, while BDO Unibank  BDO.PS  lost 2 percent.  
Singapore shares  .STI  lost 0.4 percent as oil and gas firms Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  and Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  
shed 1.7 percent and 1.2 percent respectively. On the month, the index gained 1.6 percent.
Singapore's inflation forecast for 2017 has been revised up to 1.2 percent from 0.9 percent, DBS Group Research said in a
note. This is to take into account the upside risk to inflation in the coming months, the note said.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed flat after January manufacturing and February trade data missed expectations.
The index ended the month with a 1.1 percent gain.
Investors will be looking out for February headline consumer price index in the next session, which is seen rising 1.6
percent for an 11th straight month compared to last year, a Reuters poll showed. 

Vietnam shares  .VNI  fell 0.9 percent on the day, but posted a monthly gain of 1.9 percent.
