SE Asia Stocks-Most markets rise as investors move on from trade war fears


* Thailand extends gains to near 4-month closing high
    
* Singapore rises 1.2 pct to two-week closing high
    
* Philippine falls about 1 pct on foreign selling

    By Sumeet Gaikwad
    
Sept 19 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday, tracking gains in broader Asia, as investors shrugged off the latest round of tariff war between Washington and Beijing.
    
China will levy tariffs on about $60 billion worth of U.S. goods in retaliation for new U.S tariffs, as previously planned, but has reduced the volume of tariffs that it will collect on the products. 
    
The new tariff measures will take effect on Sept. 24, the date when the United States says it will begin to levy new
tariffs of 10 percent on $200 billion of Chinese products.
    
"Financial markets may be turning slightly blase towards the U.S.-China tit-for-tat trade war, with China's retaliation of  tariffs on $60 billion of U.S. imports .... providing some respite to the sell-off for selected Asian bourses," OCBC said in a note.
    
Thai shares  closed higher for a second straight session and posted their highest close since May 23, helped by
gains across the board.
    
Index heavyweights PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  and CP All Pcl  CPALL.BK  rose 1 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively.
    
Earlier in the day, the central bank left its key policy rate unchanged at 1.50 percent, as widely expected, and
maintained its forecasts for export and economic growth this year.  
    
Consumer stocks helped Indonesian shares  .JKSE  climb 1.1 percent with Astra International  ASII.JK  rising nearly 5.3 percent and Unilever Indonesia  UNVR.JK  adding 1.5 percent.
    
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks rose 1.2 percent.
    
Singapore stocks  .STI  gained 1.2 percent after two straight sessions of declines and posted a two-week closing
high.
    
DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI , the city-state's top lender, rose 1.2 percent, while Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI added 0.7 percent.
    
Meanwhile, Philippine shares  .PSI  fell nearly 1 percent to a more than two-month closing low, dragged by financials.
    
Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  and Ayala Corp  AC.PS  declined 3.2 percent and 2.1 percent, respectively.
    
The archipelago is facing high inflation and rising costs, with the situation worsening due to a weak peso  PHP= . This has sparked concerns of a widening current account deficit with the central bank signalling a fourth hike in its benchmark interest rates this year, a central bank official said on Tuesday.
 
Foreign investors net sold $11.8 million worth shares on Wednesday, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon Data.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

This year in Thailand-what next?


AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year.
