SE Asia Stocks-Most decline tracking China; Singapore down nearly 1 pct

Most Southeast Asian stock markets stumbled on Monday following their Chinese peers, which fell
despite the country's central bank increasing liquidity to offset the fallout of a months-long U.S.-China trade row.
Sino-U.S. tensions intensified over the last week with U.S. Vice President Mike Spence accusing China of meddling in next
month's congressional elections and a report that Chinese spies had compromised U.S. hardware.
"There is negative impact from the Chinese stock market because the central bank's measure cannot fully offset the
negative sentiment from last week," said Rakpong Chaisuparakul, an analyst at KGI Thailand.
The People's Bank of China on Sunday cut the minimum cash reserve that banks must hold, in a move to support the economy.
Chinese markets reacted for the first time, after a week-long holiday, to last week's surge in benchmark U.S.
Treasury yields and strong economic data which sparked concerns of a faster-than-expected rate hike by the Federal Reserve.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was 0.9 percent lower.    
Singapore's benchmark index  .STI  continued to decline on Monday, closing lower for a third straight session, ahead of  possible tightening of monetary policy by the central bank this week.  
The Monetary Authority of Singapore is expected to tighten monetary policy at Friday's review, in an attempt to balance the risks of growth and inflation amid global trade frictions.
United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  fell 2.1 percent and conglomerate Jardine Matheson Holdings  JARD.SI  slid 1 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  fell 1.4 percent, extending losses into a fifth session, weighed down by energy and materials sector.
PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK  declined 3.3 percent while Indorama Ventures  IVL.BK  slumped 5.7 percent.
On the other hand, Indonesia stocks bucked the trend to rise 0.5 percent, with financial and consumer shares boosting the index. Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  gained 1.7 percent and Unilever Indonesia UNVR.JK  advanced 3.6 percent.  
The country's central bank has intervened to manage the rupiah's volatility, a senior official told Reuters on Monday,
after the currency weakened to its lowest in over 20 years.
