SE Asia Stocks-Subdued as investors await Fed rate hike signal

Southeast Asian stock markets were sluggish on Tuesday, ahead of a speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Friday that could offer clues about a U.S. interest rate hike this year.
Dampening market sentiment further, oil fell below $49 a barrel, giving up part of August's strong rally, as signs of rising supply outweighed hopes that producing nations will agree on steps to support prices.  
Goldman Sachs said in a report that talk of an output freeze by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and a weak dollar had helped drive prices up this month but neither was enough to sustain current levels.   
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed down 0.2 percent after falling as much as 1.4 percent earlier in the day. Consumer cyclicals led the losses, with Astra International Tbk PT  ASII.JK  falling 2.4 percent.
Markets were jittery as comments by Fed officials on improving economic conditions could mean another rate hike, said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo Securities Indonesia.
Concerns over Yellen's speech and the "series of hawkish comments (from Fed officials) gave investors the right excuse for profit-taking", Shim said, adding that "this week is going
to be extremely volatile."
Philippine shares  .PSI  ended 0.6 percent lower, dragged down by telecom stocks, with PLDT Inc  TEL.PS , the country's biggest telecom company by market capitalisation, losing 2.4 percent.
The market fell due to a mixture of profit-taking from Monday's short gain and the "risk-off mood" ahead of Yellen's speech, said Victor Felix, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
If the speech is "dovish in tone", the market will spike next week, he added.
Singapore shares  .STI  closed marginally up, with telecoms leading the gains. StarHub Ltd  STAR.SI  rose 1.1 percent.
Asian shares edged up with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up 0.4 percent at 0930 GMT.

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.
