CORRECTED-SE Asia Stocks-Fall over capital outflow fears; Indonesia posts record closing high

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Thursday on fears of capital outflows from the
region after minutes of the U.S. Federal Reserve's last meeting showed that most policymakers think it should start trimming its
massive stimulus.
The U.S central bank's stimulus since the global financial crisis has driven capital inflows into Asia's emerging markets, and a reduction in it could prompt outflows from the region.
The minutes released on Wednesday of the March 14-15 policy discussion showed that most Federal Reserve policymakers think the central bank should take steps to begin trimming its $4.5 trillion balance sheet later this year as long as the economic data holds up.   
"Southeast Asian markets are basically following the performance of U.S. stocks last night after the minutes of the
FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting," said Lexter Azurin, an equity analyst with AB Capital Securities.
Wall Street ended lower on Wednesday after a late-afternoon reversal following signals from the Fed.  .N  
"Investors are taking a cautious stance as there is a bit of uncertainty over the next rate hike."
Investors were also wary ahead of the much anticipated meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, the first between the world's two most powerful leaders.  MKTS/GLOB  
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was down about 0.6 percent at 0833 GMT.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  recovered from early falls to close at a record high, rising for a fourth straight session.  
The index of the region's 45 most liquid stocks  .JKLQ45  was up about 0.1 percent.  
Financials were the main gainers with Bank Mandiri (Persero)  BMRI.JK  posting a two-year closing high while Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  ended at an all-time high.
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.3 percent lower after touching a five-month high earlier, with financial and real
estate stocks leading the decline.
"I think the Philippine market is just taking a breather. There has been a renewed interest in the market over the past
few days which pushed it up," said Azurin.
Business process outsourcing services provider Ayala Corp  AC.PS  closed 2.8 percent lower, while property developer Ayala Land  ALI.PS  ended down 2.6 percent.
Vietnam  .VNI  and Thailand  .SETI  were closed for Hung King's Day and Chakri Day, respectively.

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.

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
