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."
