SE Asia Stocks-Buoyed by BoE stimulus; Jakarta hits 15-month high

Southeast Asian stock markets inched up on Friday, in line with Asian peers, after the Bank of England cut interest rates on Thursday, and announced billions of pounds of stimulus to soften the economic shock from the Brexit vote.  

Acting on its chief economist's wish to use "a sledgehammer to crack a nut", the BoE reduced interest rates by 25 basis
points to a record-low 0.25 percent.  

BoE's first cut since 2009 was accompanied by a pledge to buy 60 billion pounds ($79 billion) of government bonds with
newly created money over the next six months, and two new stimulus schemes.

"I do not think we will hit any new highs. Rallies (in Southeast Asian markets) are not big. Most of the rate cut was really priced in. I think if they did not cut the rates, it would be down much, much more," said Joseph Roxas, an analyst with Manila-based Eagle Equities.

An overnight rally in crude oil prices also sharpened risk appetite, while sterling nursed deep losses after sliding on news of the BoE stimulus plan.  

The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  rose 0.86 percent to its highest since April 24, 2015, as data showed Indonesia's annual
economic growth accelerated more than expected to 5.18 percent in the second quarter. 

In April-June, Indonesia went on to post its strongest growth in 10 quarters, prompting some economists to predict that
the country will outperform most Southeast Asian nations this year.

Thai shares  .SETI  closed up to mark their third straight session of gains, aided by financial and telecom stocks.

Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK , Thailand's largest mobile phone operator, on Thursday forecast 2016 revenue would be
slightly better than in 2015, saying service revenue growth in the second half was expected to improve from the first half.

Malaysia  .KLSE  extended gains to close higher, driven by gains in financial and consumer stocks.

Malaysia's exports rose unexpectedly in June, driven by higher demand for manufactured goods from the United States,
which offset the hit to the oil-producing country's commodities shipments. 

Vietnam  .VNI  closed lower, dragged down by financial stocks, which accounted for more than three-fourths of the
losses on the index.

Vingroup  VIC.HM , Vietnam's top property firm, dipped 5.9 percent. Earlier in the session, it hit its lowest since April 11.

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
