SE Asia Stocks: Most edge up; Manila outperforms
BANGKOK, April 25 – Most Southeast Asian stock markets posted modest gains today as investors selectively bought beaten-down blue chips late in the session but markets remained cautious ahead of results from a US Federal Reserve policy meeting.
The Philippine index edged up 0.7 per cent, climbing at one point to an intraday record high of 5,226.54.
Thailand’s benchmark SET index ended up 0.13 per cent, with gains limited by thin trading volume. It hit a three-week high of 1,204.73 in early trade. – Reuters
