SE Asia Stocks-Cautious on subdued risk sentiment; Vietnam up

Southeast Asian stock markets were cautious on Wednesday on subdued risk sentiment, as Chinese policymakers appeared to have disparate opinions regarding their monetary policy, while fading optimism regarding oil also added to the negative sentiment.
Last week, a research office at China's top economic planner called for the central bank to cut interest rates and bank reserve requirements, but later removed the remarks in an updated statement posted on its website.  
Investors have been closely watching the country's bureaucracy for signs of policy dissent since May, when the People's Daily quoted an "authoritative person" warning of a financial crisis if the government relied too much on debt-fuelled stimulus to spur the economy.
"Risk sentiments are not particularly strong. Further, China data is expected to be on the softer side and there isn't much of a policy relief story going on in China," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Bank. "PBOC (People's Bank of China) is quite coy to put in extra stimulus."  
China's industrial output, retail sales and urban investment figures for July will be announced on Friday.  
Meanwhile, global oil prices dropped on improved prospects for U.S. output and a glut in refined products.  
"Oil prices are struggling to find traction. Markets are not going to chase commodity stocks in the near term," Varathan said.
Vietnam  .VNI  outperformed other markets in the region with a gain of 1.7 percent, led by financials.
"Gains in Vingroup and Hoa Phat created positive sentiment.

Money flowed mostly into blue chips, which in the short term could continue attracting more inflows," said Nguyen The Minh,
associate director at Saigon Securities Inc.
Singapore shares  .STI  gained 0.2 percent, driven by financials and industrials, ahead of the release of GDP data on Thursday.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  edged lower, dragged down by financials and telecommunication services, while Philippine stocks  .PSI  closed relatively flat, shrugging off a drop in June exports.

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


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
