SE Asia Stocks-Most fall as risk sentiment sours; Indonesia rises

Most Southeast Asian stock markets declined on Wednesday as overnight losses on Wall Street coupled
with monetary policy concerns in China hurt investor sentiment.
A senior researcher at the People's Bank of China has urged central banks to adopt monetary policies that do not encourage markets to expect lower interest rates indefinitely that encourage excessive risk-taking by lenders, the Securities Times reported.  
"China has been clamping down on risky practices such as in the cash loans sector," said Liu Jinshu, director of research at NRA Capital in Singapore.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  hit a near two-month low and was last down 1.5 percent.   
Japan's Nikkei  .N225  posted its worst fall in eight-and-a-half months, shares in Seoul  .KS11  dropped 1.5
percent, and the Shanghai Composite index  .SSEC  declined 0.29 percent.  .SS   .T  
U.S. technology stocks stuttered yet again on Tuesday after a brief pickup, with investors shifting money to banks,
retailers and other stocks seen as likely to benefit the most from tax cuts promised by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Singapore shares  .STI  fell 1.2 percent on Wednesday to their lowest close in two weeks, with top lenders DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI , United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  declining in a range of 2 percent to 3 percent.
"A look at the gains and losses within the STI constituents suggests a flight to safety with telcos and REITs performing better than banks, developers and offshore and marine names," said Liu.
Philippine shares  .PSI  erased early gains to close marginally lower, dragged by real estate and industrial stocks.  
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  closed 0.4 percent lower, shrugging off better-than-expected export growth.

Financials were the top losers with Hong Leong Bank  HLBB.KL  shedding 4.8 percent, while Malayan Banking  MBBM.KL   fell 1.3 percent.
Meanwhile, Indonesian shares  .JKSE  rose 0.6 percent, aided by gains in financial and consumer discretionary stocks.
Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  and Astra International Tbk PT  ASII.JK  rose 1.4 percent and 1.8 percent, respectively.
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks  climbed 0.7 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. 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
