SE Asia Stocks-Sluggish; Thailand hits 1-wk low

Southeast Asian stock markets were sluggish on Tuesday, with Thailand shedding nearly 1 percent to a one-week low, amid expectations of an extended phase of monetary easing after downbeat economic data from major economies.
Most countries are easing their monetary policies, with Britain, Australia and New Zealand cutting rates in recent weeks and Japan stepping up purchases of exchange-traded funds.
The expected easing posture of central banks globally suggests the Fed may be slower to raise short-term interest rates and that could be reflected in the minutes, analysts said.
"We recommend taking profit on outperforming trades when sentiment levels have moderated or Fed pricing has normalised,"
Nomura strategist Mixo Das said in a note.
Investor sentiment got a boost as oil prices remained near five-week highs on Tuesday, gaining 16 percent in a rally since early August as speculation intensified over potential producer action to support prices amid a glut.  
Thailand's SET index  .SETI  fell for a second day in row, dragged down by financial stocks such as Siam Commercial Bank Pcl  SCB.BK  and Kasikornbank Pcl  KBANK.BK .
A rapid rise in the baht  THB=TH  could impede business and the economy and the central bank will closely monitor the
currency, an assistant central bank governor said.  

Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose for a fifth straight session, led by telecom services and industrials, while Philippine stocks  .PSI  extended gains into a second straight day, with consumer cyclicals driving the rise.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed nearly 1 percent higher, driven by consumer staples, with PT Unilever Indonesia Tbk
 UNVR.JK  and PT Charoen Pokphand Indonesia Tbk  CPIN.JK  among the biggest gainers.
Automobile sales in Indonesia rose 12.5 percent in July from a year earlier, according to data released by industry
association Gaikindo.  
Indonesia's financial markets will be closed on Wednesday for a public holiday.

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.
