SE Asia Stocks-Thailand snaps four-day losing streak
Thai stocks closed nearly half a percent higher on Thursday, snapping a four-day losing streak, while most other Southeast Asian markets declined on soft Chinese data.
The Thai stock index .SETI had fallen every day this week following a statement by the palace on Sunday that King Bhumibol Adulyadej was in an "unstable condition" after receiving haemodialysis treatment.
The palace said late on Wednesday that the health of the 88-year-old King had "overall not yet stabilised".
Thursday's gains were led by consumer staples and industrials, with Charoen Pokphand Foods Pcl CPF.BK and
Airports of Thailand Pcl AOT.BK rising 5.2 percent and 1.7 percent respectively.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS fell just over 1 percent, touching its lowest since Sept. 19, after Chinese data showed a sharp decline in exports, reviving concerns about the health of the world's second-biggest economy.
China's exports fell 10 percent in September from a year earlier, far worse than the expected 3 percent fall, while
imports unexpectedly shrank after picking up in August. That left the trade surplus for the month at $41.99 billion, compared with a $53 billion expected by analysts.
Risk appetite also remained subdued by a report that the Bank of Japan was likely to trim its inflation forecast for the
next fiscal year in a quarterly review.
"It is an amalgamation of uncertainty and unfavourable market conditions right now. The markets are reacting to a very
gloomy sentiment," said Victor Felix, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
The Manila market .PSI fell for the seventh consecutive session to post its lowest close since late May.
Financial and real estate sectors led the fall, with property developer SM Prime Holdings Inc SMPH.PS and real
estate conglomerate Ayala Land Inc ALI.PS shedding over 5 and 4 percent respectively.
Singapore stocks .STI fell to their lowest in three months, pulled down by industrials and consumer services.
Indonesia .JKSE declined 0.5 percent, while Vietnam .VNI posted a 0.4 percent gain.
