SE Asia Stocks-Most Fall; Philippines, Indonesia shed over 1 pct
Most Southeast Asian stock markets finished lower on Tuesday tracking broader Asia, which retreated
from record highs after a spike in global bond yields dented appetite for riskier assets, with the Philippines and Indonesia losing over 1 percent each.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS was down 1.3 percent after rising to an all-time high the previous day.
The 10-year U.S. Treasury note yield US10YT=RR reached its highest since April 2014 and Japanese government bond yield scaled a 6-1/2 month peak after European bond yields jumped on expectation of an end in the European Central Bank's stimulus.
"There are a couple of factors weighing on sentiment. The rise in yields is hard to ignore so that is curbing investor
appetite," said Stephen Innes, head of trading in Asia-Pacific for Oanda in Singapore.
"Moreover, the investors know there is a lot of earnings and U.S. economic data risk ahead, so the currency markets have some jitters playing into equities."
Market participants will keep an eye out for clues on U.S. fiscal policy from a two-day Federal Reserve meeting and
earnings from a host of high-profile names including Amazon.com AMZN.O , Alphabet GOOGL.O and Facebook FB.O. .
In Southeast Asia, Philippine shares .PSI fell 1.6 percent to their lowest close in more than a week, with industrials,
real estates and financials weighing the index down.
SM Investments Corp SM.PS dropped 2.9 percent, while Ayala Corp AC.PS lost 3.1 percent.
Indonesia .JKSE was also down 1.6 percent at a one-week closing low on broad-based selling.
Singapore shares .STI closed down 0.8 percent at their lowest since January 18 as financials and industrials dragged
the index lower.
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd OCBC.SI edged down 1.2 percent, while Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd JARD.SI lost 1.3 percent.
Thai shares .SETI closed 0.6 percent down, weighed down by energy, real estate and financial stocks.
Apparel company Thanulux PCL TNL.BK , down 5.5 percent at its lowest close in a week, was the top loser on the Thai index.
Malaysia .KLSE and Vietnam .VNI ended flat.
