SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia hits 1-1/2-year high; Thailand up over 1 pct
Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Tuesday with Indonesia surging to its highest in nearly one-and-a-half year, while Thai shares rose more than 1 percent to hit a near four-week high.
The Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE climbed for a second straight session, boosted by gains in energy and consumer stocks.
"Recent developments on the domestic side have been very positive, given that we have had an encouraging tax amnesty progress and strong capital inflows," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Jakarta-based Daewoo Securities.
A report from the Strait Times said Indonesia's tax amnesty scheme achieved 90 percent of its 4,000 trillion rupiah ($308.05
billion) target in just three months.
Mining company Aneka Tambang (Persero) Tbk PT ANTM.JK jumped more than 3 percent after Indonesian government said it
was finalising an overhaul of its mining rules that could reopen exports of nickel ore which was banned since 2014.
Thai stocks .SETI were buoyed by gains in financials and consumer non-cyclical stocks. Kasikornbank Pcl KBANK.BK rose
more than 3 percent while Siam Commercial Bank Pcl SCB.BK moved 1.7 percent higher.
Philippine shares .PSI rallied to its highest in more than one week, supported by consumer cyclicals and utilities, as
investors shrugged off President Rodrigo Duterte's latest rhetoric against the United States.
Duterte has angrily rejected U.S. concerns over the bloody war on drugs he has launched since coming to office in June. His
frequent tirades have thrown into question one of Washington's most important alliances in Asia.
"I think markets are not taking him really seriously..." said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Manila-based Sunsecurities
referring to Duterte's actions.
Investors have shown concern in recent days over Duterte's foreign policies after the Philippine peso in September posted
its steepest monthly drop in 16 years.
Vietnam shares .VNI snapped a two-day losing streak, while Singapore stocks .STI rose for a second straight day as
consumer goods and services stocks gained footing.
Malaysian shares .KLSE clocked their biggest intraday percentage gain in two-and-a-half months. Blue chips IHH
Healthcare Bhd IHHH.KL and Genting Malaysia Bhd GENM.KL were among the top gainers on the index.
