The Philippines, one of the worst hit in Southeast Asia by the pandemic, shortened curfew hours in Manila and eased regulations on stay-at-home orders on Monday, just a week after a ban on non-essential overseas travel was lifted. Manila's benchmark stock index, which has largely underperformed this year, rose 1.7% to its highest since Aug. 19, driven by gains in blue-chip consumer stocks.

Sentiment has taken a hit this week after high-profile COVID-19 vaccine trials were halted, while a political tussle in Malaysia and anti-government protests in Thailand have also steered investors away from riskier assets in the region.
Asia's emerging stock markets lost more ground on Thursday as hopes of U.S. fiscal stimulus before the Nov. 3 election faded, while Thai shares' woes were compounded after an emergency decree to curb months-long protests in the country. Shares in Bangkok slipped up to 1.1% and the baht largely traded flat, after the government banned protests and the publication of sensitive news in the face of escalating protests. Protesters have demanded the removal of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, a former junta leader, a new constitution and reduction in the powers of the king.
