TAKE A LOOK-Asia c.banks: Indonesia rates hold, sees more easing room ahead

Indonesia's central bank held its benchmark interest rate
unchanged on Thursday, as expected, but raised the possibility
of a cut in January after the country's markets took in their
stride the Federal Reserve's first rate hike in nearly a decade.
    Taiwan's central bank cut its policy rate for the second
time this year on Thursday to shore up growth in the island's
trade-dependent economy as the outlook for global demand
continued to weaken.
    The Philippine central bank left its monetary policy
settings unchanged for a 10th straight meeting on Thursday, as
economic growth picks up and inflation is set to remain low.
