SE Asia Stocks-Rise after OPEC cuts output

Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday on upbeat sentiment after producer club OPEC and Russia
struck a deal to slash oil output, easing worries about a global supply glut.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)agreed to its first output limiting deal in eight years
after Saudi Arabia dropped a demand that arch-rival Iran also slash output. Non-OPEC member Russia also gave consent, making the deal its first coordinated action with OPEC in 15 years.
After the OPEC announced the cut of 1.2 million barrels per day to its output, Brent crude futures  LCOc1  shot up as much as 13 percent.  
"This is one of those times where investor confidence is reinforced along with a recovery in fundamentals, thus making it a technical rebound and a fundamental recovery," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo Securities.
Despite the jump, Brent prices reached only September-October levels which are less than half their mid-2014
levels, when the global glut started.   
"Markets will remain jittery as big events like the Italian constitutional referendum and the ECB meeting are yet to unfold this year, but for a very short term investor sentiment on risk assets is likely to improve."
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed almost 1 percent higher, posting their third straight session of gains.
Mining-related trade services provider Sumber Energi Andalan Tbk  ITMA.JK  surged 24.6 percent, followed by PT Jakarta Kyoei Steel Works Tbk  JKSW.JK , which jumped 21.9 percent.  
Indonesia's annual inflation rate in November accelerated to 3.58 percent, the highest in seven months.  

Singapore shares  .STI  ended 0.8 percent firmer, hitting a four-month high, and posting their eighth straight session of
gains, the longest winning streak since December 2014.
Rig builders Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  climbed 8.1 percent and Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  soared 7 percent.
Philippine shares  .PSI  snapped two sessions of declines, ending 1.2 percent higher after rising as much as 2.4 percent.
Petroleum refiner Petron Corp  PCOR.PS  gained 5.9 percent while Metro Pacific Investments Corp  MPI.PS  rose 3.5 percent.

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.

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
