SE Asia Stocks-Most down ahead of U.S. Fed chief speech

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Monday, with Indonesia posting its one-month closing low, as investors cautiously waited for cues on U.S. economic growth from the Federal Reserve chief.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will speak on U.S. economic outlook and monetary policy on Tuesday. A few other Fed
policymakers are also due to speak on the same day, making the Fed's policy the biggest focus for now.  
The Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) ended 1.1 percent down, its lowest close since Feb. 29, amid $36.50 million foreign outflow.
 "JCI has underperformed in the absence of key catalysts," said John Teja, director at Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.
"Possible Fed rate hike in April and weakness of rupiah in line with other emerging currencies is also pressurising."
Singapore  .STI  finished 0.6 percent weaker at its lowest since March 11, Thai stocks  .SETI  fell 0.4 percent, the
Philippines  .PSI  lost 0.4 percent, and Malaysia  .KLSE  dropped 0.1 percent.      

The Singapore index is likely to consolidate this week given the lack of fresh factors, Net Research Asia said in note to
investors, while analysts in Bangkok said the focus was on the Fed and U.S. economic growth.
Bucking the trend, Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  gained 0.6 percent.
European markets are closed for the Easter Monday holiday.
