Thai shares jumped 2.2 percent to their highest in more than two weeks on Monday as a proposal to put off the Feb. 2 election triggered short covering, but low
volumes suggested investors remained cautious as political protests intensified in Bangkok.
   
The benchmark SET index  closed at 1,283.56, the highest since Dec. 27. Among top gainers, Airports of Thailand  surged 5.2 percent and Advanced Info Service  gained 4.8 percent, both recovering from early losses.
    
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has invited leaders of anti-government protesters and political parties to discuss an Election Commission proposal to push back the date of the snap election she called.
    
Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters occupied parts of central Bangkok on Monday, meeting no resistance from the authorities, ratcheting up a two-month agitation to force the resignation of Prime Minister Yingluck.  
    
Sentiment in the region was broadly positive as weak U.S. jobs data on Friday revived expectations the Federal Reserve will keep interest rates low for longer.  
    
Among outperformers, Indonesia  climbed 3.2 percent to its highest close in nearly eight weeks, with foreign investors buying a net $159 million, while the Philippines rose 1.7 percent, with net foreign buying of $5.6 million, Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data showed.
 
Indonesia will be shut on Tuesday for a public holiday.
   
In its first-quarter report, HSBC Global Research upgraded Malaysian shares  to overweight, citing its defensive qualities and high dividend yields and upgraded Philippine stocks to overweight due to its strong economic fundamental.
