SE Asia Stocks-Fall in line with Asian peers; U.S. presidential debate awaited

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday, in line with Asian peers, after last week's gains while investors shifted their attention from central banks to American politics.
Investors awaited Monday evening's U.S. presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, which will take place
early on Tuesday in Asian time zones, the first of three debates ahead of the November elections.  
If the Republican nominee Donald Trump comes out good in the debate, it will raise the "uncertainty coefficient because he is
unorthodox", said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Corp Bank in Singapore.
Philippine shares  .PSI  were headed for a second straight session of falls, with financials and industrials leading the decline.  
Property developer SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  fell 0.54 percent, while container terminals operator International
Container Terminal Services Inc  ICT.PS  dropped 5.5 percent to its lowest in nearly two weeks.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell after Friday's gains, weighed down by industrials and financials. Diversified company Jardine
Matheson Holdings  JARD.SI  dropped 0.4 percent, while Jardine Cycle & Carriage Ltd  JCYC.SI  fell 1.34 percent.  
Stocks related to the oil and gas sector also declined, as Saudi Arabia and arch rival Iran were making little progress in
achieving preliminary agreement ahead of talks by major crude exporters next week aimed at freezing production.   
Rig builder Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  and Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  fell nearly 1 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively.
Investors also awaited industrial production data for August due later in the day for clues about the domestic economy. A
Reuters poll showed industrial production is expected to have edged higher from the previous month.
Thai shares  .SETI  were on track for a second straight session of declines, withered by financials and energy stocks
including PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  and Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK .
Malaysia  .KLSE  was marginally down after four straight sessions of gains, Indonesia  .JKSE  fell after three
consecutive sessions of rises, and Vietnam  .VNI  was lower after five consecutive sessions of gains.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  was down 0.1 percent, while Japan's Nikkei stock
index  .N225  fell 0.5 percent.
