SE Asia Stocks-Largely down; Philippines falls as Duterte tirade continues
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Wednesday tracking regional peers, led by the Philippines as President Rodrigo Duterte reiterated threats to end U.S.-Philippines military pacts.
Philippine shares .PSI ended lower for a fifth consecutive session, closing more than 1 percent lower.
Financials and consumer staples were hurt the most, with conglomerates Ayala Land Inc ALI.PS and JG Summit Holdings,
Inc JGS.PS down 1.6 percent and 1.9 percent, respectively.
Duterte, adding to his recent tirade against the United States, said that he might end defence treaties with Washington.
The Philippine leader's rhetoric comes in the backdrop of his visit to U.S.-ally Japan, where his delegation is expected to score private-sector deals worth around $2 billion, according to a BusinessWorld report, and has raised concerns
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS slid 0.8 percent as sentiment weakened by declines in U.S. stocks and a more than one percent fall in oil prices.
"Oil prices are softer and U.S. markets closed on the back foot which also makes Asian equity markets look not particularly upbeat," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Singapore-based Mizuho Corporate Bank.
The Singapore Index .STI closed 0.9 percent lower, in a second session of losses, weighed down by energy and consumer stocks.
Oil rig builder Sembcorp Industries Ltd SCIL.SI , the biggest loser on the benchmark index, lost nearly 4 percent.
Investors shrugged off the better-than-expected surge in Singapore's industrial production in September.
Thai shares .SETI closed nearly 1 percent lower, dragged down by energy and industrials, with oil and natural gas refiner
PTT Exploration and Production Public Co Ltd PTTEP.BK closing 2.1 percent lower.
Investor reaction was muted to an unexpected increase in Thailand's customs-cleared exports for September, an encouraging
sign for the trade-dependent economy still struggling to regain traction.
Malaysian .KLSE stocks were marginally lower, while Vietnam stocks .VNI closed down 0.4 percent.
