SE Asia Stocks-Fall as Yellen comments dampen sentiment
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday, in line with broader Asia, as investors digested comments by U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.
Yellen said on Friday the Fed may need to run a "high-pressure" economy in order to reverse damage from the
global financial crisis that depressed output.
Her remarks, however, did not address immediate policy concerns directly and didn't change prevailing views that the
Fed is likely to raise interest rates in December.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS dropped 0.6 percent.
Philippine stocks .PSI closed 0.4 percent lower after rising as much as 0.5 percent earlier in the session.
Financials and utilities were the biggest losers, with Manila Electric MER.PS and realtor SM Prime Holdings SMPH.PS shedding the most.
Indonesian shares .JKSE ended 0.2 percent higher, driven by energy and telecom stocks.
Indonesia's statistics bureau raised its exports figure for August to $12.75 billion from $12.63 billion, making August the first month in nearly two years in which there was an annual increase in exports.
Earlier on Monday, the bureau said the economy had a trade surplus of $1.22 billion in September as exports and imports contracted, against expectations for import growth.
Indonesia has had a trade surplus every month this year.
Thai stocks .SETI ended flat, having fallen as much as 1 percent in early trades. The index declined 1.8 percent last
week on concerns about King Bhumibol Adulyadej's health. The king passed away on Thursday.
Foreigners were net sellers in the previous four sessions.
They also cut their holdings in Thai bonds during the period, according to data from the Thai Bond Market Association.
Singapore shares .STI closed almost flat, after declining as much as 0.8 percent in early trades following data that
showed September exports declined less than expected, though a grim outlook for the economy prevailed.
Malaysian .KLSE shares lost 0.3 percent, while Vietnam .VNI fell 0.9 percent, dragged down by energy stocks including Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp GAS.HM .
