SE Asia Stocks-Sluggish ahead of BOJ meet; Singapore slumps

Southeast Asian stocks were largely sluggish on Thursday with investors watching from the sidelines
as they awaited monetary easing steps by the Bank of Japan to support the government's larger-than-expected stimulus package.
Japan's economy minister called on the central bank to work with the government to boost growth after the Japanese prime
minister announced a 28 trillion yen ($267 billion) stimulus package on Wednesday.  

"Markets are watching out for the BOJ's reaction in relation to the announcement as there is no pre-commitment to anything
specific yet," said Vishnu Varathan, senior economist at Singapore-based Mizuho Corporate Bank.
Singapore stocks  .STI  ended 0.8 percent lower after two of the city-state's top banks voiced concerns about loans to the
oil and gas sector. Sentiment took a further hit after local oilfield services firm Swiber Holdings  SWBR.SI  said it was
winding up, under the weight of crushing debt.    
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  and United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  fell 0.5 percent and 1.27 percent respectively.
Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  closed 0.3 percent lower, led by consumer cyclicals and consumer staple.
The Philippines  .PSI  ended 0.9 percent lower, led by infrastructure firm Ayala Corp  AC.PS  and conglomerate JG
Summit Holdings  JGS.PS , down 2 percent and 3 percent respectively.
Thai stocks  .SETI  rose 0.5 percent, their biggest gain since May 2015 as the finance ministry kept the country's 2016
GDP outlook at 3.3 percent.
