Thai stocks (THD) rise 1.66% ahead of tomorrow's central bank meeting — investors (and the country's finance minister) are hoping for a rate cut as a strong baht has recently led some to begin throwing around the idea of capital controls.

Around the region: Malaysian (EWM) and Philippine (EPHE) markets rise 0.51% and 0.22% respectively, shares in Singapore (EWS, EWSS) tick 0.44% higher, and Vietnamese equities (VNM) add 0.77% to Monday's strong gains, bringing their two-day rally to 3.2%.
