SE Asia Stocks-Rise with Asia; Singapore leads gain at near 2-month high
Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday amid strength in Asian markets, with Singapore's key stock index touching a near two-month high as investors braced for the central bank's possible monetary policy easing this week.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is expected to ease monetary policy on Wednesday to support an economy that may have slipped into a recession in the third quarter for the first time since the global financial crisis.
Singapore's key Straits Times Index .STI ended the day higher 1.1 percent at 3,032.11, the highest since Aug. 19, in strong trading volume which was 1.6 times the full-day average over past 30 days.
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE advanced for a sixth session, up 0.9 percent at a more than two-month high, while Vietnam .VNI extended gains to a near two-month high.
Stocks in Malaysia .KLSE , Thailand .SETI and the Philippines .PSI all rose further after a strong run last week as foreign investors continued buying.
Shares got off to a strong start to the week in Asia and Europe on Monday while the dollar dipped towards three-week lows, with investors unconvinced the U.S. Federal Reserve would raise interest rates later this year.
