Investors remained anxious about the spread of the virus as China ordered a lockdown on Wuhan, a central Chinese city of 11 million people, ahead of the travel-heavy Chinese New Year holiday. Leading losses in the region, Singapore shares hit their lowest close in two weeks with United Overseas Bank falling 0.7% and conglomerate Jardine Matheson Holdings dropping 1.5%.

* Malaysia rises on Petronas Gas boost * Philippines falls as cenbank holds key policy rate * Singapore rises on bluechip financials By Arundhati Dutta Dec 12 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets rose on Thursday, with Thailand snapping a 10-day losing streak and leading gains, after the U.S. Federal Reserve indicated there would be no change in rate settings in the near future. The Fed also projected a favourable outlook for the U.S. economy at its last policy meeting of the year on Wednesday. Elsewhere, China said it was in close communication with the United States, while President Donald Trump is expected to meet with top advisers to decide whether to go ahead with planned Dec. 15 tariffs.
* Fed signals no change in interest rates in near future * Singapore Q3 unemployment rate rises to decade high * Philippines falls ahead of cenbank policy decision By Arundhati Dutta Dec 12 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets rose on Thursday as the Federal Reserve signalled that interest rates would remain steady for some time amid positive projections for the economy, even as the weekend deadline for U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods looms. Moderate economic growth and historically low unemployment are expected to persist through the 2020 presidential election and interest rates would remain accommodative, the U.S. Fed said in its last meeting of the year.
* Singapore posts biggest intraday pct gain in nearly 3 weeks * Philippines has best session in more than a week * Malaysia snaps two sessions of losses By Arundhati Dutta Dec 11 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets rose on Wednesday on expectations of a delay in U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods set to kick in this weekend, but Thailand fell for a tenth straight session. "Market players are positioned for a delay at the very least," Maybank said in a note. The Singapore index, which is highly sensitive to developments on the trade war front, posted its biggest intraday percentage gain in nearly three weeks.
* Indonesia's ends lower despite hopes of c.bank trimming rates * Philippine markets cautious ahead of c.bank meeting - analyst * Thailand closed for a holiday By Arundhati Dutta Dec 10 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian markets saw broad losses on Tuesday, with Vietnam falling the most, as investors held risky bets awaiting a decision from the United States on whether it would go ahead with fresh tariffs on Chinese imports this weekend. While Beijing said it hoped to strike a deal as soon as possible, U.S. President Donald Trump said that the United States was doing well in hammering out an agreement with China. Vietnam stocks led the declines in the region, dragged by consumer stocks.
* Real estate stocks weigh on Philippines * Malaysia stocks fall after dismal trade data * Vietnam gains more than 1% By Soumyajit Saha Dec 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Wednesday, with Philippines falling the most, as U.S. President Donald Trump doused hopes of a preliminary deal to cancel further tariffs on China, set to come into force in about 11 days. Trump said on Tuesday that 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.
* 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. "There is justifiable cause to correlate Trump's bluster to Beijing's insistence that tariff rollback is a pre-condition to any deal," Mizuho Bank said in a note to clients.
* U.S. slaps tariffs on Brazil, Argentina * Also proposes duties on French imports * Weak U.S. manufacturing data adds to gloom * Singapore falls for sixth time in seven sessions By Soumyajit Saha Dec 3 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Tuesday as U.S. tariffs on Brazil and Argentina threatened to aggravate global trade tensions, while weak U.S. factory data added to the dour sentiment. The Trump administration on Monday announced tariffs on U.S. steel and aluminium imports from the Latam countries and vowed duties of up to 100% on French goods.
* Hong Kong human rights bill could hamper trade talks * Indonesia set for sixth straight day of losses * The Philippines falls most, down 0.7% By Arundhati Dutta Nov 28 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian markets fell on Thursday as investors feared the U.S. government's decision to sign a bill backing protesters in Hong Kong could thwart Beijing and Washington from defusing their 16-month trade dispute. Mass protests for more democracy and autonomy have rocked the former British colony for six months, with escalating violence and fears that China will ratchet up its response to end the unrest. China's Foreign Ministry said it will take "firm counter measures" if the United States continues to interfere in Hong Kong after Trump on Wednesday signed into law congressional legislation backing pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

* China's Oct industrial output grew slower than expected * Philippine shares at near 4-week low * Thai cenbank to lower growth outlook for 2019 & 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 14 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets declined on Thursday, as dismal economic print from China and rising uncertainty over a highly-anticipated Sino-U.S. trade deal weighed on risk sentiment. Indonesian stocks dropped the most in the region after data showed China's industrial output grew significantly slower than expected in October, reinforcing views that long-drawn trade war with United States is taking a toll on the world's second-largest economy. "The latest news added to the sense that the path to any trade deal remains riddled with uncertainties and contributed to the relatively lower market risk appetite," OCBC analysts said in a note.
* China Oct PPI falls most in 3-yrs * Thai shares lead losses * Singapore's DBS Group flags weaker 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower on Monday as uncertainty over whether the United States and China would end their bruising trade war lingered, while data from Beijing brought slowdown fears to the fore. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday contrasted reports of officials from U.S. and China agreeing to rollback existing tariffs by saying he had not agreed to such a deal, which sparked fresh doubts over whether the two sides would find a segue in their damaging tariff spat. Meanwhile, data showed that China's producer prices, a key indicator of corporate profitability, fell the most in more than three years in October, as the manufacturing sector weakened while consumer prices grew at their fastest pace in about eight years.
* Indonesian inflation falls to 6-month low * Singapore's UOB slips on poor quarterly results * Philippine markets closed for holiday By Anushka Trivedi Nov 1 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets fell on Friday on a report that China expressed doubts over signing of a long-term trade deal with the United States, while a raft of weak data in the region also dented sentiment. Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Chinese officials told visitors to Beijing that it will not budge on the thorniest issues and is concerned about the risk that U.S. President Donald Trump could back out of the interim deal. Meanwhile, recent manufacturing data for trade-reliant Asian economies such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam have all disappointed.

Market sentiment turned positive after a first day of trade talks between top U.S. and Chinese negotiators that Trump characterised as "very, very good." Chances of reaching "early harvest" agreements on issues such as currencies and copyright protections were higher, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce official said, while U.S. President Donald Trump said senior U.S. delegates had "very, very good negotiations with China".
