SE Asia Stocks-Gain on oil price rally; Indonesia up for 3rd session
Southeast Asian stock markets advanced on Thursday, tracking Asian shares, with Indonesia posting a third straight session of gains, as a rally in oil prices boosted energy stocks across the region.
Oil futures extended gains after rising nearly 6 percent on Wednesday, as OPEC members agreed to limit production to a range
of 32.5 million barrels to 33 million barrels per day during talks held on the sidelines of an energy conference.
"It remains to be seen whether such a cut is followed by all members and whether Russia would follow with a cut of its own,"
Trimegah Securities said in a note.
"But it would still serve as a positive sentiment, at least for the short-term."
Indonesian shares .JKSE ended up 0.12 percent, after hitting a near two-month high earlier in the day, with United Tractors Tbk PT UNTR.JK and Adaro Energy Tbk PT ADRO.JK being among the top performers.
Indonesia's central bank is intervening in money markets to provide liquidity after many banking clients withdrew money to pay for tax amnesty fees, the central bank governor Agus Martowardojo said.
Vietnam shares .VNI hit an eight-and-a-half-year high, recording its longest winning streak of nine sessions since March 2014. Index heavyweight Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp GAS.HM rose 4.57 percent in heavy trading.
Philippine shares .PSI led the region, and posted their second straight session of gains, with oil conglomerate Petron Corp PCOR.PS climbing 3.9 percent.
Singapore shares .STI edged up to post a three-week high.
While the benchmark oil and gas index .FTFSTAS0001 rose nearly percent, Sembcorp Industries Ltd SCIL.SI and Keppel Corp Ltd KPLM.SI were the top gainers on the index.
Malaysian shares .KLSE climbed 0.28 percent with the country's biggest oil and gas services company SapuraKencana Petroleum SKPE.KL pulling up the index, while Thailand .SETI snapped four sessions of losses.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.7 percent.
