SE Asia Stocks-Most down ahead of BOJ policy decisions, weak Wall Street

Most Southeast Asian stocks markets ended lower on Friday after weak U.S. corporate results, and as
statements from the Bank of Japan governor hinting at no plans to expand stimulus programmes hurt investor sentiment.
In a BBC interview broadcast on Thursday, BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda ruled out the idea of using "helicopter money"
to combat deflation, as policymakers in Tokyo gear up to expand existing stimulus programmes.  

"Regional markets are taking cues from the decline in Wall Street. Corporate earnings have failed to impress investors, and
that has led to a downdip on sentiment in Asian markets," said Manny Cruz, an analyst with Asiasec Equities Inc in Manila.
"It seems that plans for further stimulus in Japan have started waning and monetary easing cannot be supported at this
time, which resulted in the weakness in our markets. Japan may wait for further cues before engaging in monetary easing," he
Analysts said investor confidence also took a beating on expectations of a hawkish stance from Federal Reserve chair
Janet Yellen at the FOMC meeting on July 27.
"While the probability of a hike remains below 10 percent on July 27, Fed is gaining confidence that it can raise rates as
early as September," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Jakarta-based Daewoo Securities, in a note.
Vietnam  .VNI  fell on profit-taking, falling as much as 2.9 percent intraday. It lost 2.2 percent over the week.
Indonesia  .JKSE  eased 0.38 percent after its central bank left key rates unchanged on Thursday, against market
expectations for another cut.
The index gained 1.70 percent on the week.
The Philippines  .PSI  fell 0.9 percent, its worst intraday movement in nearly a month. The index posted marginal losses for
the week.

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
