SE Asia Stocks-Buoyed by China growth data; Singapore hits 2-1/2 mth high
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday, in line with their Asian peers, as better-than-expected China GDP data, a status quo from the Bank of England and record highs on Wall Street offset the impact on sentiment of an attack in France.
China's economy climbed 6.7 percent in the second quarter, marginally better than the expected 6.6 percent, which would
have been the weakest since the global financial crisis.
Industrial output and retail sales also beat forecasts, which helped alleviate fears of slowing momentum.
"The fact that money supply and loans are also up suggests that China's pro-stimulus position should not be derailed, which
will be quite supportive of wider Asia," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Corporate Bank in Singapore.
The BoE on Thursday surprised financial markets by keeping interest rates on hold, but held out the prospect of a stimulus
"Given that markets have been effervescent the whole week, there might be some caution as we go into closing hours. We are
not looking at an all-out risk positioning either," he said.
Indonesian shares .JKSE were up 0.5 percent, driven by financials and consumer non-cyclicals, after the country's trade
surplus grew more than expected to $900 million in June.
Trimegah Securities said it expected JCI to fall on Friday and trade in a range of 5,058-5,133.
Kino Indonesia KINO.JK climbed 4 percent, while Bank Central Asia BBCA.JK gained nearly 1 percent.
Singapore shares .STI resumed trading after Thursday's disruption and rose as much as 1.1 percent to their highest
since April 22, driven by consumer services and industrial stocks.
Philippine stocks .PSI gained 0.7 percent, driven by telecom and financials stocks, while Vietnam .VNI was down
with consumer non-cyclicals and energy shares leading the losses.
Asian shares extended gains, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS rising 0.7
Meanwhile, news of an attack in France lifted the safe-haven yen in early trading. An attacker killed up to 80 people and
injured scores when he drove a heavy truck at high speed into a crowd watching Bastille Day fireworks in the French Riviera city
of Nice late on Thursday, officials said.
