SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia falls most on high oil prices, trade-talk woes
24 June 2019
    By Shreya Mariam Job
    June 24 (Reuters) - Indonesia led declines among Southeast
Asian stock markets on Monday, as investors were wary due to
rising oil prices and uncertainties ahead of fresh round of
Sino-U.S. trade talks, while Vietnam rose buoyed by financial
and real estate stocks. 
    Oil prices rose on Monday, extending vast gains last week
prompted by tensions between Iran and the United States, as
Washington was set to announce new sanctions on Tehran.  O/R 
    On the other hand, investors are hoping for signs of a thaw
in the prolonged trade war with the leaders of U.S. and China
expected to meet at this week's G20 summit in Japan.*:nL4N23V0J3     
    Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  dropped 0.4% leading declines in

    The country's foreign trade surprisingly swung back to a
surplus in May, against market expectations of a $1.38 billion
    However, oil and gas deficit was still rather elevated in
May, according to an OCBC note.    
    "In our view, we see that this May trade surplus does help
to further strengthen the opportunity for Bank Indonesia (BI) to
cut the benchmark rate soon in 3Q 2019 possibly by 25bps," the
note added.     
    Singapore's benchmark stock index  .STI  dropped 0.3%
dragged by industrials and financials. 
    Singapore's all-items inflation picked up slightly in May
and was higher than expected due to increased transport costs,
data showed on Monday.*:nS7N1WB00P
    Investors snapped up profits among financial stocks with
United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  shedding 1.8% and snapping 11
straight sessions of gains, and shares of Oversea-Chinese

sessions of gains.
