SE Asia Stocks-Most recover, post weekly gains
Most Southeast Asian stock markets recovered from early falls on Friday but ended the week in positive territory, on gains in previous sessions after the Federal Reserve stood pat on rates and the Bank of Japan revamped its policy earlier this week.
The markets fell initially due to profit-taking following gains in the previous sessions, after Fed Chair Janet Yellen signalled that the Fed would like a rate cut by year-end. The Fed also redrew a less aggressive rise in rates next year and in 2018.
Markets in Southeast Asia are experiencing a technical correction given that it is a Friday, said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Manila-based Sunsecurities.
Singapore shares .STI climbed after two sessions of losses and ended the week with gains. DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI fell 0.13 percent, while diversified business company Jardine Matheson Holdings JARD.SI gained 1.8 percent.
Singapore's headline consumer price index fell 0.3 percent in August, data showed on Friday, compared with a 0.4 percent median fall forecast in a Reuters survey.
Indonesian shares .JKSE rose for the third straight session, and snapped three weeks of declines, with consumer staples and materials sectors contributing the most.
Kretek-maker PT Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna HMSP.JK rose 0.7 percent and cement maker PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa INTP.JK gained 3.3 percent.
Philippine shares .PSI fell, snapping four consecutive sessions of gains, with industrials and consumer staples leading the declines. However, the index posted its first weekly gain in seven.
JG Summit Holdings dropped 3.4 percent, while Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc AEV.PS dipped 1.5 percent.
Thai shares .SETI fell 0.9 percent but posted gains for the second straight week, while Vietnam .VNI closed higher, recording a fifth session of gains.
