* Real estate stocks weigh on Philippines * Malaysia stocks fall after dismal trade data * Vietnam gains more than 1% By Soumyajit Saha Dec 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Wednesday, with Philippines falling the most, as U.S. President Donald Trump doused hopes of a preliminary deal to cancel further tariffs on China, set to come into force in about 11 days. Trump said on Tuesday that he had "no deadline" for a trade deal with China, and could wait until after the U.S. presidential election in November 2020 to sign an agreement.
* Trump says he could delay signing deal with China until end-2020 * Malaysia stocks fall to their lowest in 8 weeks * Vietnam bucks trend to gain slightly By Soumyajit Saha Dec 4 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets tracked a global downturn on Wednesday as the Trump administration dashed hopes of a quick preliminary deal to halt impending U.S. tariffs on China. U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he had "no deadline" for a trade deal with China, and could wait until after the U.S. presidential election in November 2020 to sign an agreement. "There is justifiable cause to correlate Trump's bluster to Beijing's insistence that tariff rollback is a pre-condition to any deal," Mizuho Bank said in a note to clients.
* U.S. slaps tariffs on Brazil, Argentina * Also proposes duties on French imports * Weak U.S. manufacturing data adds to gloom * Singapore falls for sixth time in seven sessions By Soumyajit Saha Dec 3 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Tuesday as U.S. tariffs on Brazil and Argentina threatened to aggravate global trade tensions, while weak U.S. factory data added to the dour sentiment. The Trump administration on Monday announced tariffs on U.S. steel and aluminium imports from the Latam countries and vowed duties of up to 100% on French goods.
* Hong Kong human rights bill could hamper trade talks * Indonesia set for sixth straight day of losses * The Philippines falls most, down 0.7% By Arundhati Dutta Nov 28 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian markets fell on Thursday as investors feared the U.S. government's decision to sign a bill backing protesters in Hong Kong could thwart Beijing and Washington from defusing their 16-month trade dispute. Mass protests for more democracy and autonomy have rocked the former British colony for six months, with escalating violence and fears that China will ratchet up its response to end the unrest. China's Foreign Ministry said it will take "firm counter measures" if the United States continues to interfere in Hong Kong after Trump on Wednesday signed into law congressional legislation backing pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong.
* China's Oct industrial output grew slower than expected * Philippine shares at near 4-week low * Thai cenbank to lower growth outlook for 2019 & 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 14 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets declined on Thursday, as dismal economic print from China and rising uncertainty over a highly-anticipated Sino-U.S. trade deal weighed on risk sentiment. Indonesian stocks dropped the most in the region after data showed China's industrial output grew significantly slower than expected in October, reinforcing views that long-drawn trade war with United States is taking a toll on the world's second-largest economy. "The latest news added to the sense that the path to any trade deal remains riddled with uncertainties and contributed to the relatively lower market risk appetite," OCBC analysts said in a note.
* China Oct PPI falls most in 3-yrs * Thai shares lead losses * Singapore's DBS Group flags weaker 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower on Monday as uncertainty over whether the United States and China would end their bruising trade war lingered, while data from Beijing brought slowdown fears to the fore. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday contrasted reports of officials from U.S. and China agreeing to rollback existing tariffs by saying he had not agreed to such a deal, which sparked fresh doubts over whether the two sides would find a segue in their damaging tariff spat. Meanwhile, data showed that China's producer prices, a key indicator of corporate profitability, fell the most in more than three years in October, as the manufacturing sector weakened while consumer prices grew at their fastest pace in about eight years.
* Indonesian inflation falls to 6-month low * Singapore's UOB slips on poor quarterly results * Philippine markets closed for holiday By Anushka Trivedi Nov 1 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets fell on Friday on a report that China expressed doubts over signing of a long-term trade deal with the United States, while a raft of weak data in the region also dented sentiment. Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Chinese officials told visitors to Beijing that it will not budge on the thorniest issues and is concerned about the risk that U.S. President Donald Trump could back out of the interim deal. Meanwhile, recent manufacturing data for trade-reliant Asian economies such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam have all disappointed.
