SE Asia Stocks-Most down; Thailand snaps five quarters of gains

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday, tracking weak global peers, as a slew of hawkish comments from central banks signalled that the era of cheap money was coming to an end.  
Global equities took a hit after the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney surprised many on Wednesday by saying that a rate hike was likely to be needed as the economy came closer to running at full capacity.  
"Hawkish central bank rhetoric continued to sustain across major markets as investors anticipated the upcoming Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) balance
sheet unwinding and pushed bond yields higher and weighed on Wall Street overnight," OCBC Bank said in a note.
Most markets in the region ended the quarter with gains, except Thailand  .SETI  which snapped a five-quarter winning streak to end lower. The benchmark index fell 0.02 percent with PTT  PTT.BK  losing 1.3 percent and Energy Absolute  EA.BK  closing 3.5 percent lower.  
Singapore shares  .STI  declined one percent, dragged down by financials.

Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation  OCBC.SI  and United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  fell 1.5 percent and 1.7 percent, respectively. The index gained for a fifth consecutive quarter.
Meanwhile, Philippine shares  .PSI  gained for a fourth consecutive month, led by gains in SM Investment  SM.PS  of 1.7 percent and BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  of 2.5 percent.  
Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose 0.61 percent with Joint Stock Commercial Bank for

Foreign Trade of Viet Nam  VCB.HM  and Hoa Phat Group JSC  HPG.HM  gaining 0.8 percent and 2.7 percent, respectively.
Indonesia's financial markets  .JKSE  were closed on account of a national holiday.  
  Market                  Current      Previous      Pct Move
  Singapore            3226.48      3258.65        -0.99
  Bangkok              1574.74      1578.12        -0.21
  Manila                 7843.16      7788.06          0.71
