* Lack of detail about trade talk progress weighs on sentiment * Malaysian palm oil exports to meet EU standards by 2021 * Singapore falls to near 3-week low, Jardine Matheson down By Arundhati Dutta Nov 19 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday as lack of significant progress in U.S.-China trade talks kept investors on the edge, while Malaysia slipped after the government announced new food safety standards for its vital palm oil industry. "The trade-talks are starting to look more like an iceberg, and not a lighthouse," Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst for Asia Pacific at OANDA said in a note. The closer markets were getting to the looming Dec. 15 deadline, when a new set of U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports will kick in if a deal is not met, the more lonely equity markets are starting to look, he added.
* Philippines closes at 4-week low, down 0.7% * Singapore exports shrink for eight straight month in October * Thailand expands at slowest quarterly pace in a year in Q3 By Arundhati Dutta Nov 18 (Reuters) - Singapore and Thailand markets rose on Monday on hopes of stimulus measures following weak data from both countries, while other regions were mixed amid lack of concrete evidence on the progress in Sino-U.S. trade talks. Data on Monday showed Singapore's exports shrank for the eighth straight month in October, with the country's important electronic shipments steeply falling amid the trade dispute. "Instead of a short-term stimulus package, the government will more likely roll out a robust fiscal budget early next year." The index advanced 0.5%, with shipbuilder Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) rising 8% and real estate operator City Developments Ltd adding 2.5%.
* Investors watch for signs of thaw in the U.S.-China trade war * Indonesia set to snap eight sessions of gains * Singapore marks worst session in two weeks By Sameer Manekar Oct 23 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets dropped on Wednesday, with the Philippines leading declines, on prolonged U.S.-China trade spat and as investors locked in profits following a recent rally. Investors are also closely watching for signs of a thaw in the U.S.-China trade war, which has cast a shadow over financial markets and global economic growth. An exclusive Reuters report that one of the U.S. advisers to U.S. President Donald Trump on trade talks with China will leave government could introduce some uncertainty about future trade talks.
* Markets had hoped Beijing would provide further monetary support * Indonesia rises ahead of cenbank policy meet on Oct 24 * Malaysia set to decline for a third consecutive session By Sameer Manekar Oct 21 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets dipped on Monday as China, the region's biggest trading partner, unexpectedly kept its benchmark lending rate unchanged, trimming hopes of further stimulus measures from the world's second-largest economy. The decision to keep the benchmark lending rate steady came just days after China reported its third-quarter gross domestic product growth cooling to a nearly 30-year low. "Market is getting in the frame of mind here that the People's Bank of China is not going to come riding in to the rescue," said Stephen Innes, market strategist at AxiTrader.
Foreigners are once again pouring money into Singapore's high-end property market despite hefty levies introduced last year. Some of the Chinese investors are apparently buying into these luxury homes in the city state as a safety bet against the U.S.-China trade war.
