SE Asia Stocks-Largely down in line with Asia; Philippines, Singapore rise
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Tuesday, tracking Asian shares and Wall Street overnight as the passage of a U.S. healthcare bill grew doubtful, raising concerns about how the rest of President Donald Trump's ambitious economic agenda would fare.
Republican Senators Jerry Moran and Mike Lee announced their opposition on Monday to a U.S. legislation to dismantle and replace the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, leaving it without enough votes to pass.
"Ever since Trump's Obamacare repeal failed, there has been an unwinding of a risk-off bias into a risk-on bias," said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
In Southeast Asia, Indonesian shares .JKSE closed 0.3 percent lower, hurt by financials and consumer staples.
The decline was primarily driven by foreign net selling, he said.
"Mixed signals from the European Central Bank with regards to their monetary policy are causing a bit of jitters, so
investors might be risk-off with regards to emerging markets," he added.
Bank Rakyat Indonesia BBRI.JK closed down 0.7 percent, while Unilever Indonesia UNVR.JK fell 1.4 percent to a
one-week closing low.
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks .JKLQ45 closed 0.45 percent lower.
Thai shares .SETI declined for the third consecutive session to close at a one-week low, dragged down by financial
and telecom stocks.
Siam Commercial Bank SCB.BK ended 2.2 percent lower, while Advanced Info Service ADVANC.BK fell 1.1 percent to a one-week closing low.
Philippine shares .PSI closed at their highest in one month, helped by gains in financial and real estate stocks.
However, the upside was limited by falls in telecom stocks.
PLDT Inc TEL.PS dropped 3.5 percent to its lowest close in nearly two months after it PHI.N shed about 2.2 percent on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday.
Singapore shares .STI , meanwhile, extended gains into a fourth session, closing at their highest level since July 27,
2015. Financials led the gains with DBS Group Holdings Ltd DBSM.SI rising 1.7 percent to a 17-1/2-year closing high.
