SE Asia Stocks-Tepid as investors await US data for hints on Fed rate hike

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Tuesday as investors continued to digest hawkish comments from U.S. Federal Reserve officials last week.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen said on Friday the case for a rate hike was strengthening, but provided little detail on when it would next move.       
Traders now await the August payrolls report due on Friday, which is likely to miss expectations, for further clues on the U.S. economy. 
"There is a good chance that the rate hike will happen in December, rather than in September," said Mikey Macainag, an analyst with Philippines-based Sunsecurities Inc.
But if the U.S. payrolls data is good, we can expect the rate hike in September... There is going to be a continuation of
this bull market."
Philippine shares  .PSI  fell for a fifth consecutive session, led by telcos including sector heavyweight PLDT Inc  TEL.PS .
With most of the catalysts like earnings and GDP numbers already out and the absence of any market-stealing development, stocks are in a correction phase, said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  extended gains into a third straight session, helped by energy stocks including Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  as global crude prices rose on production suspensions in the U.S. Gulf due to an expected tropical storm and speculation that producers meeting in Algeria next month will act to prop up prices.   
Thai shares  .SETI  eked out marginal gains, shrugging off disappointing July manufacturing output data.  
Asian shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  gained 0.6 percent, recovering around half of Monday's loss.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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.
