SE Asia Stocks-Most rebound; gains capped as U.S futures slide

Southeast Asian share markets except Singapore rebounded on Wednesday after two days of hefty losses, but gains were largely capped as U.S stock futures dipped during late Asian trading hours.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  edged higher as a late rebound on Wall Street overnight helped soothe frayed nerves, though many kept a wary eye on S&P E-Mini futures  ESc1  which slipped about a percent, signalling the likelihood of more volatility ahead.  
"The low volatility regime is likely dead - 2017 and early 2018 were a crazy anomaly. So far, the blow-up is scary but has been relatively contained," said Peter Garny, Head of Equity Strategy at Saxo Bank, in a note.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 1.4 percent higher at 8,667.56 points with financials leading the gains.  
"There is a strong resistance at around 8,700 points. That will be barrier for the market in the near-term," said Manny
Cruz, an analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.  
Although inflation sharply picked up in January, the Philippine central bank is seen edging closer to its first rate
hike in over three years.  
Ayala Land Inc  ALI.PS , up 2.7 percent, was the top gainer while lenders Ayala Corp  AC.PS  and BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  
were up between 2 percent and 3 percent.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  ended 0.9 percent higher after the International Monetary Fund said the country's annual economic growth will gradually rise to about 5.6 percent.  
Bank Negara Indonesia (Persero) Tbk PT  BBNI.JK , up 5.2 percent, and Unilever Indonesia Tbk PT  UNVR.JK , up 1.4 percent, were the top gainers.
An index of the country's most liquid stocks climbed a percent.  
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose 1.3 percent, as investors brushed aside data which showed December exports rose at a much slower pace for a second straight month.
Singapore shares  .STI  closed 0.7 percent lower as financial weighed.  
"Investors are reacting to the prospect of high interest rates in light of the fact that rates are reaching levels that
investors are uncomfortable with and they are taking money off the table from companies that are more sensitive," said Liu Jinshu, director of research at NRA Capital in Singapore.
Top lenders DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  and United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  fell around 1.4 percent while Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation  OCBC.SI  dropped 0.7 percent.
Vietnamese shares  .VNI  jumped 2.9 percent after shedding 8.5 percent in the previous two sessions.

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
