SE Asia Stocks-Largely tepid ahead of U.S. jobs dat
Most Southeast Asian stock markets marked time on Friday ahead of the release of the U.S. monthly jobs report that will set the tone for the Federal Reserve's rate hike outlook.
Nonfarm payrolls probably increased by 175,000 jobs in January, picking up from the 156,000 jobs added in December, according to a Reuters survey of economists. The unemployment rate is expected to be unchanged at 4.7 percent in January.
Investors are concerned whether the Fed would switch gears to a more hawkish stance if jobs data continues to surprise on the upside. A quicker pace of rate hikes on the back of strong economic indicators is likely to trigger fund outflows from emerging markets.
Some analysts are pencilling in a March rate hike if payrolls data surprises on the upside, while futures FFcm1 are
predicting a move only by June.
