SE Asia Stocks-Close higher ahead of U.S. jobs data

Southeast Asian stocks closed higher on Friday, as investors braced for U.S. jobs data due later in the
day for cues on a possible interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech on Monday would also indicate whether the central bank would raise rates at its
policy-setting meeting on June 14-15.
"With the release of U.S. jobs data few hours away, we now see a trend where investors turn hopeful ahead of any
market-moving data," said Chung Chiang Shiao, an analyst with DBS Vickers Securities (Singapore).  
Markets expect U.S. employment data due at 1230 GMT to show a non-farm payroll increase of about 164,000 and 0.2 percent rise in average wage earnings in May.  ECONUS  
"We'd have to wait and watch until the release of the data to understand whether the current rise is sustainable. Although hopeful, investor sentiment will remain subdued until stocks re-open for trading on Monday," he said.
