SE Asia Stocks-Jittery ahead of Fed meeting, Brexit referendum

Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Friday ahead of a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting next
week that is likely to take a call on an interest rate increase, and the UK referendum later this month on Britain's exit from the European Union.  
The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, pointing to sustained strength in the labour market despite a sharp slowdown in hiring last month.
The health of the labour market will likely determine the timing of the next Federal Reserve interest rate increase.
Fed watchers surveyed by Reuters this week saw a median 40 percent chance of a hike in July and a roughly two-in-three chance of a September move.
Britons will vote on June 23 on whether to remain part of the EU, a choice with far-reaching consequences for politics, the economy, defence and diplomacy but divergent polls have made it difficult to predict the outcome.  

"The markets are on tenterhooks ahead of next week's FOMC meeting. Rates may go up in July or September and markets do not like such uncertainty," said an analyst from Singapore.
"We also think Britain wouldn't want to exit the EU, but if it swings otherwise, the effects could be detrimental."  
Lower oil prices also dampened sentiment.  
The Singapore index  .STI  led the losers, dragged down by oil and gas, and consumer services stocks, but managed to gain 0.5 percent on the week.
The oil index  .FTFSTAS0001  lost 2 percent as a stronger dollar pulled crude off the 2016 highs hit this week.  
Oil-rig firms Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  and Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  closed 2.4 percent and 2.1 percent lower,
Indondesian stocks  .JKSE  lost 0.6 percent, dragged down by energy and consumer cyclicals.
It fell marginally on the week.
Auto-distributor Astra International Tbk PT  ASII.JK  lost 3.6 percent.     
Thai  .SETI  and Vietnam  .VNI  stocks fell. On a weekly basis, Thailand lost 0.5 percent, while Vietnam gained about 1.3 percent.
The Philippine index  .PSI  reversed gains from early trade, losing 0.4 percent.  
Earlier, Asian shares pulled back, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  
dipping 0.8 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
