SE Asia Stocks - Mixed; Thai shares rebound ahead of holiday
Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed on Wednesday, with oversold Thai and Indonesian shares rebounding amid selective buying during an earnings season, while other markets were flat to weaker ahead of a policy decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve.
The Thai SET index .SET closed the day up 0.7 percent after a fourth straight loss on the previous day that sent the gauge deep into overbought territory.
Its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) was at 27.8 at the close versus 21.6 on Tuesday. A level of 30 or lower indicates an oversold condition.
Siam Cement SCC.BK climbed 1.2 percent after the country's largest industrial conglomerate beat market expectations with a surge of 63 percent in quarterly net profit.
"Execution of infrastructure projects will be a key boost to economic activity. The current index level is a good entry point to accumulate shares," said Juckchai Boonyawat, chief distribution officer at Manulife Asset Management.
The Thai stock market will be closed on Thursday for a public holiday, reopening on Friday.
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE closed up 0.1 percent, with its 14-day RSI at 30.14 at the close from Tuesday's 29.18. Shares of airline Garuda Indonesia GIAA.JK gained 5.9 percent after it swung to profit in the first half of 2015.
