* Thailand set to snap five-week winning streak * Australia announces reopening schedule By Pranav A K May 8 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday as investors focused on talks between U.S. and Chinese trade officials and after some countries showed progress in plans to reopen their coronavirus-hit economies. Amid escalating bilateral tensions, top trade representatives of China and the United States held a phone call earlier in the day to discuss their Phase 1 trade deal and agreed to strengthen macroeconomic and public health cooperation. "The mood in Asia is upbeat with China and U.S. trade ambassadors having a very positive call this morning," said Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst at OANDA.
* Philippines leads gains, hits 1-month high * China cuts key interest rate * Overnight oil price drop pressuring Thai energy sector - analyst By Arundhati Dutta April 15 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged up on Wednesday after the Chinese central bank cut a key interest rate to get its economy back on track amid fears of the worst global economic downturn since the 1930s. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) on Wednesday cut the interest rate on its medium-term funding for financial institutions to the lowest level on record and paved the way for a similar reduction in benchmark loan rates. The global economy is expected to shrink by 3.0% during 2020, marking the steepest downturn since the Great Depression, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday.
* The Philippines leads gains, up 3% * Indonesia c.bank cuts RRR, holds rates * China March exports fall 6.6% y/y By Arundhati Dutta April 14 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Tuesday on better-than-expected trade data from China and signs of the coronavirus outbreak peaking in certain hotspots. Data from China, the region's biggest trading partner, showed that exports fell 6.6% in March compared with a year earlier, less than analysts' estimate of a 14% plunge. Big caps Ayala Corp and Bank of the Philippine Islands rose 8.3% and 5.2%, respectively.
* Singapore, Philippines up over 2% * Indonesia c.bank may stay on hold - poll By Arundhati Dutta April 14 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian markets rose in thin trade on Tuesday, tracking broader equities on signs of the coronavirus pandemic peaking, amid high caution ahead of Chinese trade data and an uncertain U.S. earnings season. Singaporean stocks advanced up to 2.4%, hitting their highest level in a month. Heavyweight financials United Overseas Bank Ltd and DBS Group Group Holdings Ltd rose over 2%, each.
* Philippines closes at 4-week low, down 0.7% * Singapore exports shrink for eight straight month in October * Thailand expands at slowest quarterly pace in a year in Q3 By Arundhati Dutta Nov 18 (Reuters) - Singapore and Thailand markets rose on Monday on hopes of stimulus measures following weak data from both countries, while other regions were mixed amid lack of concrete evidence on the progress in Sino-U.S. trade talks. Data on Monday showed Singapore's exports shrank for the eighth straight month in October, with the country's important electronic shipments steeply falling amid the trade dispute. "Instead of a short-term stimulus package, the government will more likely roll out a robust fiscal budget early next year." The index advanced 0.5%, with shipbuilder Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) rising 8% and real estate operator City Developments Ltd adding 2.5%.
* Malaysia mostly flat, c.bank holds interest rate * Indonesia Q3 GDP broadly in line with expectations * Philippines surges in last-minute trade By Sameer Manekar Nov 5 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Tuesday, with Philippines rising the most, as risk appetite was boosted by a report that the United States was planning to drop some tariffs on Chinese goods. Global equities rose after the Financial Times reported that the United States was considering rolling back levies on $112 billion of Chinese imports as a concession to a partial deal, which could be signed this month, according to U.S. officials. "If the U.S. does roll back existing tariffs, the positive spillover will extend beyond financial markets, as such a move would alleviate the downwards pressures on global trade conditions as well," said Han Tan, market analyst at FXTM in a note.
* China C.bank cuts medium-term lending facility interest rate * Philippines hits over three-month high * Malaysia down ahead of cenbank rate decision By Sameer Manekar Nov 5 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Tuesday on signs that Washington and Beijing were nearing a trade truce, while fresh stimulus measures in China, the region's largest trading partner, also supported buying. "The most significant change on the trade front compared with just three months ago is that both sides, which were very negative on the deal, now want to get something signed," said Joel Ng, analyst, KGI Securities. Meanwhile, China's central bank cut the interest rate on its medium-term lending facility (MLF) for the first time since early 2016, in a bid to shore up liquidity amid slowing economic growth.
* Thailand sees best day in over 3 weeks * Singapore hits over 3-month high * Vietnam stocks hit over 1-year high By Sameer Manekar Nov 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets rose on Monday, with Thailand leading gains, as progress in the long drawn Sino-U.S. trade talks and strong jobs data from the United States buoyed risk appetite.
* Washington plans partial trade deal with Beijing at Chile summit * Indonesia set to post biggest weekly gain in nearly 5 months * Singapore Exchange rises 7.5% after strong Q1 results By Sameer Manekar Oct 25 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets traded in the red on Friday as uncertainty over the Sino-U.S. trade deal was revived ahead of fresh rounds of negotiations, while concerns about global economic slowdown continued to rattle confidence. Investors are also nervous ahead of a summit in Chile where U.S. President Donald Trump hopes to finalise a partial trade deal with China's Xi Jinping. Also dampening sentiment, a Reuters poll of economists found that the recent truce in the U.S.-China trade dispute is not an economic turning point and has failed to reduce a significant risk that the world's biggest economy could slip into recession in the next two years.
* High-level Sino-U.S. trade talks to begin on Thursday * World Bank says Asia-Pacific economic growth to slow * Thai cenbank officials say economy growing below potential By Soumyajit Saha Oct 10 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed in the red on Thursday amid cautious mood as market participants awaited high-level Sino-U.S. trade talks to begin, while Philippines ended over 1% firmer. The first minister-level trade talks in months is slated to begin later in the day, as the world's top two economies attempt to blunt the blow of a tit-for-tat tariff war that has battered growth worldwide. Elsewhere, a World Bank report said Asia Pacific economies are expected to slow this year due to uncertainty around trade tensions, while a slowdown in major global economies could further hurt the region's exports.
* High-level Sino-U.S. trade talks to begin on Thursday * The Philippines' Aug trade deficit narrows on-month * Energy and banking sectors dent Thailand index By Soumyajit Saha Oct 10 (Reuters) - Philippine stocks rose in low volumes, while most other Southeast Asian markets held steady on Thursday, as investors remained cautious as neither Washington nor Beijing had shown signs of giving ground at the trade negotiations. U.S. S&P500 mini futures tumbled after media reports cited that no progress was made in the deputy-level trade talks, and that the Chinese delegation was planning to leave Washington on Thursday after just one day of high-level talks, instead of Friday as originally planned. Washington is weighing a currency pact with China as part of a partial deal that could see a planned tariff hike next week being suspended, Bloomberg reported citing sources familiar with the talks.
