SE Asia Stocks -Rise, Thai index at 2-month high

jueves 15 de octubre de 2015 07:13 GYT

BANGKOK, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
rose on Thursday as hopes of a delay in Fed rate hike brought
foreign inflows to the region, bringing the Thai index to a more
than two-month high and helping most other regional indexes
recoup some recent losses.
    The SET index rose 1.4 percent to 1,425.32, its
highest close since Aug. 7. Shares of banks outperformed, led by
Bank of Ayudhya, ahead of quarterly results next week.
    Foreign investors bought shares worth a net 918 million baht
($26.1 million) after selling offs on Wednesday and Tuesday.
    Shares in the Philippines recovered from a near
two-week closing low on Wednesday. Indonesia and
Malaysia both finished higher on resuming trade after a
market holiday on the day before.
    Stock exchange data showed foreigners purchased Philippine
shares a net 68.1 million peso ($1.49 million) and bought
Malaysian shares worth a net 48.25 million ringgit ($11.71
    Singapore rose 1 percent, recouping some of the
losses over the past two trading sessions. Vietnam closed
0.41 percent higher, led by banks and energy firms with impact
of a government disinvestment plan still visible. 
    Global equity markets slid for a second day and the dollar
sank to a seven-week low on Wednesday as weak U.S. retail sales
and a drop in producer prices boosted expectations the Federal
Reserve will not raise interest rates until next year.
