The U.S. Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed a $2-trillion bill aimed at helping unemployed workers and industries hurt by the virus outbreak. Thailand has put into effect a state of emergency until the end of April, sealing off its borders from non-resident foreigners to contain the virus, though it held off on restricting people's movement inside the country At odds with the regional trend, Singapore stocks eased as much as 2.9% after its economy contracted more than expected in the first quarter.

Broader Asian markets clocked in strong gains on news that China - the region's largest trading partner - plans to halve additional tariffs levied against 1,717 U.S. goods last year, even as it reiterated its aim to eventually scrap all tariffs that had been levied during the trade war. Trade-sensitive Singapore shares climbed nearly 1% to hit their highest close since Jan. 27, with index heavyweights Jardine Strategic Holdings and Singapore Telecommunications Ltd ending up 1.3% and 1.5%, respectively.

* Trump says he could delay signing deal with China until end-2020 * Malaysia stocks fall to their lowest in 8 weeks * Vietnam bucks trend to gain slightly By Soumyajit Saha Dec 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets tracked a global downturn on Wednesday as the Trump administration dashed hopes of a quick preliminary deal to halt impending U.S. tariffs on China. U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he had "no deadline" for a trade deal with China, and could wait until after the U.S. presidential election in November 2020 to sign an agreement.

* Markets await Trump's speech * Bangkok Life Assurance posts upbeat quarterly results * Vietcombank rises on deal with FWD Group By Anushka Trivedi Nov 12 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian markets eked out modest gains on Tuesday, with trade-sensitive Singapore shares rising the most as investors eagerly await a key speech by U.S. President Donald Trump for clues on a U.S.-China trade deal. Later in the day, Trump is scheduled to address U.S. trade policy at the Economic Club of New York, and markets will tune in for any upbeat commentary since his remark on Friday, that he had not agreed to roll back tariffs, had dented prospect of an imminent trade pact. In a low volume session, Singapore shares jumped 0.8% on strength in industrial stocks.
* China says agreed with U.S. to cancel tariffs in phases * Philippines Q3 GDP growth better than forecast * Thailand leads gains with a 1% rise By Sameer Manekar Nov 7 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets climbed on Thursday, with Thailand leading the pack with a 1% gain, after China said it agreed with the United States to cancel in phases the tariffs imposed on each others' goods. China's commerce ministry said Washington and Beijing must simultaneously cancel some duties on each others' goods for the two sides to reach a "phase one" trade deal. "The trade war started with tariffs, and should end with the cancellation of tariffs," Gao Feng, a commerce ministry spokesman, told reporters without specifying a timetable.

Reuters on Wednesday reported that a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's Xi Jinping to sign the long-awaited interim trade deal could be delayed until December. "The question really is, do we even get a December deal?" The Indonesian index seemed underwhelmed by the trade news, but shares dropped after President Joko Widodo urged bank executives to help spur growth with cuts in lending rates and loans, following feeble third-quarter growth data.
* Thai stocks flat-to-low ahead of C.bank policy decision * Philippines sees worst session in over a month * Singapore set to rise for third consecutive session By Sameer Manekar Nov 6 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets traded in a flat-to-low range on Wednesday, with the Philippines leading declines after recent gains, as investors turned cautious in anticipation of concrete details from the Sino-U.S. trade negotiations. China is insisting that the United States remove tariffs imposed in September as a part of the "phase one" Sino-U.S. trade deal, which is expected to be signed this month at a yet-to-be-determined location. "Continued optimism that the U.S. and China are on the cusp of sealing the 'Phase 1' trade deal is now conditional on meeting Beijing's demand for a rollback at least of tariffs imposed in September, over and above avoiding further tariff escalation," Mizuho Bank said in a note.

Also aiding sentiment was the expectation of a rate-cut by the Bank of Thailand at its meeting on Wednesday to support growth. Malaysia's benchmark index gained 0.6%, shrugging off a worse than expected decline in its September exports.
* Markets had hoped Beijing would provide further monetary support * Indonesia rises ahead of cenbank policy meet on Oct 24 * Malaysia set to decline for a third consecutive session By Sameer Manekar Oct 21 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets dipped on Monday as China, the region's biggest trading partner, unexpectedly kept its benchmark lending rate unchanged, trimming hopes of further stimulus measures from the world's second-largest economy. The decision to keep the benchmark lending rate steady came just days after China reported its third-quarter gross domestic product growth cooling to a nearly 30-year low. "Market is getting in the frame of mind here that the People's Bank of China is not going to come riding in to the rescue," said Stephen Innes, market strategist at AxiTrader.

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.

* Sino-U.S. trade talks set to start on Thursday * Philippine c.bank gov signals end of rate cuts for 2019 * Singapore set to snap two sessions of gains By Soumyajit Saha Oct 9 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets dropped on Wednesday, as tensions between the United States and China heightened hours ahead of high-level negotiations, denting hopes of a trade deal. Washington imposed visa restrictions on Chinese government and Communist Party officials over abuses of Muslim minorities. "I think more bad news is yet to come." Philippine stocks shed previous session's rally to drop as much as 1% after the central bank said that last month's rate cut could be the last of 2019.
Movement in the Philippines' benchmark had been muted for most of the week, though Friday's 1% fall led to a weekly loss of 0.7%.

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, accusing him of seeking foreign help to smear Democratic rival Joe Biden ahead of next year's election.
* Philippines posts worst session in 2 weeks, oil prices weigh * Singapore index down after data shows exports contract in Aug * Most in wait-and-watch mode ahead of Fed meeting By Rashmi Ashok Sept 17 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets were subdued on Tuesday, with the Philippine index posting sharp losses as soaring crude prices following attacks on Saudi Arabian facilities put pressure on the importer-nation. The attacks have halved the kingdom's oil output, creating the biggest disruption to global oil supplies in decades, denting investor sentiment in oil-importing nations of the Philippines and Indonesia. After a bout of last-minute buying, which pushed the Philippine index higher just before session's close on Monday, stocks are now tracking regional peers lower, said Charles William Ang, associate analyst, COL Financial Group.
