Korean end up more than 1% By Shriya Ramakrishnan Aug 24 (Reuters) - The South Korean won was the worst hit among Asian currencies as the dollar steadied on Monday, while stock markets across the region clocked modest gains on hopes for a potential COVID-19 treatment. The Thai baht, Singapore dollar and Malaysian ringgit were all flat to lower against the dollar. In South Korea, the won slid as much as 0.5% before regaining some ground, after its central bank chief warned that a recent surge in COVID-19 infections within the country will likely weaken economic recovery.
Singapore's second-largest lender Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp reported a larger-than-expected 40% tumble in second-quarter net profit on Friday, hurt by loan-loss provisions in a pandemic-hit market and a slowdown in customer activity. The result underscored a cautious sector outlook as larger peer DBS Group and smaller competitor United Overseas Bank shored up allowances and cut costs to deal with the double whammy of low interest rates and weak growth. Kevin Kwek, senior analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein, said the sector's results were "not too bad" considering that the June quarter globally would "arguably be the worst quarter in history".

After a cautious start which picked up chiefly on the U.S. central bank's promise to use "all tools" to support growth, major markets wobbled, while the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore chalked up significant losses.
