SE Asia Stocks-Mostly subdued ahead of Fed, BOJ policy decisions

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed weaker on Wednesday as investors remained cautious ahead of central bank policy decisions in the United States and Japan.
The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to hold interest rates steady later in the day when the two-day Federal Open Market
Committee (FOMC) meeting ends. It could also take a more upbeat view on the economy, keeping the way open for future rate hikes.
"Everybody is on a wait-and-see mood. They want to see the Fed views on the U.S. economy and Bank of Japan's stimulus
measures," said Teerada Charnyingyong, an analyst with Phillip Capital in Bangkok.
The Bank of Japan will make its policy decision on Thursday amid speculation it could ramp up its already extensive monetary
stimulus scheme, which includes negative interest rates on some deposits at the BOJ.
Thailand's SET index  .SETI  closed 0.5 percent down, led by financial stocks while Singapore's Strait Times Index  .STI  
fell 0.7 percent to its lowest close since April 12.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  recovered from early falls to finish steady at a six-week closing low hit on Tuesday, despite
$25.62 million of foreign outflows.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  fell 0.4 percent, led by industrial and financial shares, while Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  
ended 0.8 percent down as losses in several blue chips offset gains in energy stocks.
Bucking the trend, the Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  ended 0.7 percent higher, its first gain in three sessions.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
