SE Asia Stocks-Upbeat U.S. jobs data fuels risk appetite; Indonesia up 2 pct

Most Southeast Asian stocks closed higher on Monday, in line with Asian peers, as upbeat U.S. jobs
data eased concerns over the health of the world's largest economy, with Indonesia hitting a 13-month high and Philippines
up more than 1 percent.
The U.S. employment report on Friday, which showed the economy added 287,000 jobs last month, was more than forecast
and acted as an immediate impetus for investors starting the week with a greater appetite for risk.  
"A stronger jobs report more or less eschews heightened concerns about the U.S. economy coming to a screeching halt,"
said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Mizuho Corporate Bank in Singapore.
"For the rest of the week, markets are going to be on toes ahead of the Bank of England meeting."  
The Bank of England meets on Thursday and might cut its 0.5 percent interest rate to offset the economic drag from Britain's
vote to leave the European Union.  
"The main bet is whether the BOE is going to ease this week or August when they release their updated inflation forecast. We
think they'd move ahead of time than wait and watch," Varathan said.
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  gained 2 percent, led by financials and consumer staples, closing at its highest since
June 2015.
Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  and Bank Rakyat Indonesia (Persero) Tbk PT  BBRI.JK  gained 2.1 percent and 5.6 percent,
Philippine shares  .PSI  finished 1.2 percent higher, led by property developers and consumer cyclicals.
SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  and Ayala Land  ALI.PS  gained 2.9 percent and 2.4 percent, respectively.
"The local markets may re-test the psychological resistance level of 8,000 this week, with support continuing to stay at
7,600," Manila-based SB Securities said in a note.  
Singapore's Straits Times index  .STI  closed at its highest in more than two months, with consumer services and financials
leading the gainers.
Thailand  .SETI  and Malaysia  .KLSE  gained 0.9 percent and 0.6 percent, respectively.
However, Vietnam  .VNI  closed 1 percent lower, dragged down
by energy stocks.
Asian shares rose, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  jumping 1.8

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
