    Thai shares hit highest close in over 2 decades


    Thai shares continued their winning streak for a ninth session and closed at their highest in nearly 24 years on Tuesday, while other Southeast Asian stock markets edged up, tracking broader Asia.

    The Stock Exchange of Thailand gained 0.37% and closed at 1,643.55, its highest since January 1994. Gains in convenience store operator CP All Pcl and retailer Home Product Center Pcl boosted the index.

    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose as much as 0.4% to their highest since December 2007, drawing confidence from strong overnight gains on Wall Street.

    Investors are awaiting the China retail sales data and the industrial production data due this week, said Liu Jinshu, director of research at NRA Capital.

    "US CPI data is also due Thursday, so the markets may be waiting for any cues following last week's volatility," he added.

    Tensions on the Korean Peninsula have been weighing on Asian equities.

    The United Nations Security Council on Monday unanimously stepped up sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear test earlier this month, imposing a ban on the country's textile exports and capping imports of crude oil.

    Malaysian shares rose 0.4% to close at their highest since June 16, supported by a 3.5% rise in natural gas company Petronas Gas Bhd.

    Singapore shares ended 0.2% higher after data showed the city-state's retail sales in July rose 1.8% from a year earlier, helped by growth in sales at petrol service stations.

    Top bank Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp led the gains on the index with a 0.9% rise, while Singapore Airlines Ltd climbed 2.2%.

    Vietnam shares finished 0.3% higher, while the Philippine market was closed as authorities suspended financial trading on account of floods.
