SE Asia Stocks-Lower as risky assets fall out of favour

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Wednesday as investors fled to safer assets ahead of the French presidential election.
France's presidential election is closely watched as the stakes for investors are high, with two anti-EU, anti-euro candidates among the four seen still in contention to make it to a second round two weeks after Sunday's ballot.  
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May calling for early general elections ahead of negotiations to leave the EU added to the general sense of wariness.
"I think there is risk-off sentiment in the markets right now following last night's surprise announcement regarding the snap elections in the UK," said Victor Felix, an equity analyst with AB Capital Securities.
"There is also a lot of uncertainty ahead of the first round of French elections."
Asian stocks excluding Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  hit their lowest since mid-March.
Philippine shares  .PSI  lost 0.9 percent as telecom, consumer and energy stocks declines, with telecom giant PLDT Inc
 TEL.PS  the biggest loser on the benchmark.
Singapore shares  .STI  trimmed some earlier losses to end 0.4 percent lower as weakness in oil continued to plague energy stocks.
Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  and Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  were among the index's biggest losers, down 2.6 percent and about 2
percent, respectively.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  were largely unaffected by inflation data released earlier showing consumer price inflation hit an eight-year high in March, albeit slightly below a forecast in a Reuters poll.  

As an exception, Vietnam shares  .VNI  gained.
Indonesian stock markets  .JKSE  were closed as Jakarta holds the second round of gubernatorial elections with the incumbent Christian governor, Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, and his Muslim opponent neck and neck in the race to lead
Indonesia's capital.
A quick sample count of over half the vote by Indikator Politik showed Anies Baswedan was ahead with 58 percent of the
votes versus 42 percent for Purnama.  
The election campaign - which has been among the most divisive in the city's history - has been marred by religious
and ethnic tension over the blasphemy trial of Purnama, who is accused of insulting Islam.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
