SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia falls ahead of long holiday

miércoles 15 de julio de 2015 07:05 GYT

BANGKOK, July 15 (Reuters) - Stocks in Singapore, Malaysia
and the Philippines rose on Wednesday ahead of a key Greek vote
and a speech by the U.S. Federal Reserve chief, while Indonesia
snapped recent gains after a narrower June trade surplus and
ahead of a long break.
    The key Singapore index posted a fourth straight
gain to a more than one-week high, while indexes in Malaysia
 and the Philippines both extended gains for a
fifth trading day.
    Indonesian financial markets will be closed from July 16 to
July 21 for the Eid al-Fitr celebrations. Markets will reopen
for trading on July 22. 
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan
 was slightly higher. Investors in Asia awaited
congressional testimony by the Fed chief late in the session and
a Greek parliamentary vote on austerity measures. 
    The Jakarta composite index fell 0.7 percent,
reversing four days of gains. Indonesia's trade surplus narrowed
to $477 million in June, with weak imports and exports
underscoring concerns over weakening growth. 
    Thai shares fell amid selling in large-cap banks such as
Bangkok Bank and Krung Thai Bank ahead of
quarterly earnings announcements due by next week. Vietnam
 eased on profit-taking.
