SE Asia Stocks-Flat to higher on global cues; Indonesia closes at record high

Southeast Asian stock markets ended flat to higher on Tuesday, tracking a global relief rally as risk appetite revived following the centrist win in the first round of French presidential election.
While markets globally got a lift from the expected win of anti-Frexit candidate Emmanuel Macron, they now await the
results of the final round of election on May 7 between Macron and far-left leader Marine Le Pen. Macron is widely expected to
win the election.   
"Asian markets appear to be still lingering in the glow of relief after the French election. The jubilance in markets overnight has also added to the optimism," said Jingyi Pan, a market strategist with IG in Singapore.
Investors were worried that North Korea would conduct another nuclear test or long-range missile launch, perhaps on the Tuesday anniversary of the founding of its military. But instead of a nuclear test or big missile launch, it deployed a large number of long-range artillery units in the region of Wonsan on its east coast for a live-fire drill.  
Investors are also looking ahead to U.S. President Donald Trump's promise to announce on Wednesday "a big tax reform and
tax reduction".  
"For Asian markets, event risks lie ahead, though the imminent event in the form of Trump's tax announcement provides an upside bias for markets," said Pan.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  hit an all-time closing high with telecom stock Sarana Menara Nusantara  TOWR.JK  rising 5.3 percent and Bank Rakyat Indonesia  BBRI.JK  gaining 1.6 percent.
Philippine shares  .PSI  rose 1.5 percent to close at their highest in six months, with gains being led by Aboitiz Power
 AP.PS  and DMCI Holdings  DMC.PS .
Singapore stocks  .STI  rose for the fourth straight session, while Malaysian shares  .KLSE  posted their highest
close since May 2015.  
"With the ringgit  MYR=  at an attractive level, foreign funds are slowly putting Malaysia back into their radar," said
Danny Wong, chief executive officer of Areca Capital.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed at their lowest in more than a month, while Vietnam  .VNI  fell for the fourth straight session, posting their lowest close since March 2.

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
