    EMERGING MARKETS-Thai baht down ahead of policy decision; Singapore leads Asian shares up

    * Thailand likely to lift rates by 25 bps * Singapore shares hit near 9-mth high ahead of CPI data * China, Taiwan, Hong Kong closed for new year By Savyata Mishra Jan 25 (Reuters) - Asian emerging markets trickled back to life on Wednesday after the Lunar New Year holiday, with the Thai baht dipping ahead of a central bank policy rate decision, while Singapore shares hit a near nine-month high ahead of inflation data. The baht fell 0.3% despite expectations the Bank of Thailand will hike rates by another 25 basis points (bps) later in the day to curb elevated inflation. The baht has appreciated by 5.3% against the dollar so far this year, becoming Asia's best performing currency, driven by a weaker dollar and China's earlier-than-expected reopening.

    EMERGING MARKETS-Asian FX subdued after BOJ stands pat, Thai baht leads losses

    * U.S. dollar surged nearly 2% against the yen * Asian equities mixed, while currencies weaken * Philippine peso is only outlier, gaining 0.2% By Jaskiran Singh Jan 18 (Reuters) - Emerging Asian currencies came under pressure on Wednesday, with Thailand's baht emerging as the top loser after the central bank of Japan, the world's third-largest economy, held fast to its ultra-low interest rates. The Bank of Japan (BOJ) made no changes to its ultra-low interest rates at the end of its two-day meeting, ending days of market speculation that the central bank might phase out its massive stimulus programme in the wake of rising inflationary pressures. Following the news from the BOJ, the U.S. dollar surged nearly 2% against the yen, its biggest one-day percentage jump since June 17, putting further pressure on emerging Asian currencies.

    EMERGING MARKETS-Asian FX cautious ahead of Fed minutes, Thai baht jumps on tourism prospects

    * Singapore dollar, Thai baht among top gainers in Asian FX * Thai baht reaches more than 7-mth high * Chinese yuan hovers around 4-mth high against dollar By Savyata Mishra Jan 4 (Reuters) - The Thai baht and Singapore dollar firmed on Wednesday among weak Asian currencies as investors remained risk-averse ahead of the release of U.S. Federal reserve policy meeting minutes and as China's COVID-19 cases continued to mount. The baht outperformed with a 0.5% rise to its highest since May 31, benefiting from expectations that China's scaling back of stringent anti-virus controls could boost tourism.
