SE Asia Stocks-Fall as Trump healthcare defeat spurs tax-cut doubts
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Monday as U.S. President Donald Trump's defeat on a crucial healthcare bill fanned concerns about his ability to push through tax cuts and fiscal spending to boost economic
Trump suffered a stunning political setback on Friday in a Congress controlled by his own party when Republican leaders pulled legislation to overhaul the healthcare system, a major 2016 election campaign promise of the president and his allies.
His failure to get enough support to "repeal and replace" the Obamacare health insurance reforms has raised questions
about the Republican Party's capacity to govern effectively.
"The failure of the Trump government - the push for their own healthcare - has resulted in mixed results in the regional
markets today," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Manila-based Asiasec Equities Inc.
"So, we are waiting for some developments before moving back to these markets."
The political setback in the United States spurred a rush to safe-haven assets such as gold XAU= . Gold rose more than 1 percent to a one-month high after the dollar plunged.
In Asia, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS fell as much as 0.3 percent.
Singapore shares .STI ended 0.5 percent lower, snapping two sessions of gains, with real estate and industrial stocks
leading the losses.
Real estate company CapitaLand Ltd CATL.SI and Jardine Cycle & Carriage Ltd JCYC.SI shed 1.4 percent and 0.6 percent, respectively.
Philippine shares .PSI closed 0.3 percent lower, weighed down by industrial and financial stocks. SM Investments Corp SM.PS declined 1.1 percent, while Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company MBT.PS fell 3.1 percent.
Indonesia .JKSE finished the session 0.5 percent lower, with financials accounting for more than half the losses.
Vietnam .VNI rose as much as 0.5 percent to its highest since February 2008 before trimming gains to close marginally higher. FLC Faros Construction Joint Stock Company ROS.HM was the biggest percentage gainer with a rise of 1.3 percent.
