SE Asia Stocks-Brexit fears, weak Chinese data pull markets down

Most Southeast Asian stocks closed lower on Monday, as risk appetite took a hit on concerns over Britain's likely exit from the European Union and on disappointing Chinese data, prompting investors to flock to safe havens such as gold and the yen.
The safe-haven yen strengthened across the board, hitting a three-year high against both the euro and sterling, while gold hit 4-week highs on Monday.
Investors were also wary ahead of meetings by the U.S. Federal Reserve, Bank of England, Swiss National Bank and the Bank of Japan later this week.  
All are expected to hold monetary policy steady against a backdrop of caution heightened by the global impact of a
possible Brexit.  
Fears Britain is on the verge of voting to leave the European Union next week spread through global financial
markets, sending Asian and European shares sharply lower and the pound to an eight-week low.  
"The cross-Atlantic equity bear markets have somehow translated into wider Asia as well, and have dampened the
overall global risk appetite," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist with Singapore-based Mizuho Bank Ltd, adding markets will now focus on the number of Fed rate increases this year.  
"Currently, it is about 2 more rate hikes for this year.

Whether or not it comes through will determine the risk appetite going forward. For now, I think markets would be rather safe than sorry."
Nirgunan Tiruchelvam, an analyst with Religare Capital Markets, however said weak Chinese data led Southeast Asian shares lower.
"I don't think it is linked to the Brexit, there is a possibility that people are worried about Chinese situation impinging on Southeast Asian growth, that slowdown in China will affect Southeast Asia."
Growth in China's fixed-asset investment slipped below 10 percent for the first time since 2000 in January-May as a boost from record credit growth seems to be quickly fading, putting expectations of further stimulus back on the table. 
Singapore shares  .STI  closed more than 1 percent lower,  dragged down by energy stocks, as global oil prices fell on  Monday. 
Keppel Corp  KPLM.SI  fell 3.4 percent, while Sembcorp Industries  SCIL.SI  lost 1.7 percent.
Vietnam  .VNI  closed down nearly 1 percent, while Thai stocks  .SETI  fell half a percent.
Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  also ended in negative territory, while the Philippine index  .PSI  snapped two days of losses to close up 0.6 pct.

  Market             Current         Previous Close      Pct Move

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
