SE Asia Stocks-End lower as global turmoil continues     

    * Singapore down 4.3 pct on week
    * Malaysia ends 10 weeks of gains
    * Asian shares Ex-Japan down 1.9 pct
By Nikhil Nainan
Feb 9 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian shares fell on Friday and ended the week lower as bouts of heavy volatility continued to erode investor confidence across the globe.
U.S. markets remained the epicentre of the global sell-off, with the Dow  .DJI  plunging 4.1 percent and the S&P 500  .SPX   sinking 3.7 percent overnight.   
Thursday's declines pushed markets into correction territory. However, S&P mini futures  .ESc1  were up 0.6 percent in late Asian trading hours.   
The past week has reinforced yet again the uncertainty inherent in today's highly correlated markets that can wipe out trillions of dollars in investor wealth in a flash.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan   slid 1.9 percent.
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed Friday 1.6 percent lower, recording a weekly loss of 3.5 percent.
"The fall in the U.S. markets precipitated the decline in the Philippine market as well as the regional market," said   Manny Cruz, an analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.
Even though the Philippine central bank kept its benchmark interest rate steady on Thursday, real estate stocks were hit as investors anticipated that the apex bank will raise rates in the near future.
"Given the increase in January inflation, there is some worry that Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) will be compelled to hike rates, and this is the reason why you are seeing some selling in real estate stocks, especially blue-chip Ayala Land," added Cruz.
Heavyweights Ayala Land  ALI.PS  and SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  closed down 2.8 percent each.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  dropped 1.1 percent, snapping ten weeks of gains, to close 2.7 percent lower for the week.  
The country's industrial production rose 2.9 percent in December from a year earlier.  
Financials led the losses with CIMB Group Holdings Bhd  CIMB.KL  closing 3.4 percent lower.
Singapore shares  .STI  reversed Thursday's gains to fall 1.1 percent, recording a fifth session of losses in six.
United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  and Keppel Corporation Ltd  KPLM.SI  were among the top losers on the index, falling 1.1 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively.
For the week, the city-state's equity markets shed 4.3 percent.
Indonesian shares slid 0.6 percent and ended the week 1.9 percent lower.

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
