Korea, Taiwan shares down more than 3% * Philippine cenbank expected to stand pat on rates * Indian shares set to snap three-day winning streak By Shriya Ramakrishnan Aug 20 (Reuters) - The Thai baht weakened on Thursday as the arrest of anti-government activists added to a growing list of political concerns while shares in South Korea and Taiwan sank as the U.S. Federal Reserve signalled it was worried about the pace of economic recovery. Stock markets in Seoul and Taiwan, both export-reliant and highly sensitive to global growth, ended more than 3% lower as the comments from Fed policymakers, and their failure to push ahead with steps to control bond market yields, sent a wave of jitters through financial markets.
In South Korea and Taiwan, both strong exporters highly sensitive to global growth, the main share indexes dived 3% after minutes from the Fed's last meeting pointed to widespread concerns over the prospects for economic recovery. Philippines, Thai and Singapore shares were all down more than 1% and the peso traded in a tight range ahead of a central bank meeting. The baht fell as much as 0.7%, its worst daily performance in more than a month, while shares in Bangkok were down more than 1%.
Shares in Singapore edged down 0.2% after losing as much as 1% earlier, with gains in the consumer sector countering weakness in real estate and banking stocks following data showing a 41% plunge in second quarter gross domestic product. Yields on Singapore's 30-year government bonds fell about 1.8 basis points to 1.228%.
