SE Asia Stocks-Largely up ahead of Fed meet; Vietnam at 9-year high

Most Southeast Asian markets ended higher on Tuesday, as investors took a cautiously optimistic stance ahead of a U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting that could provide cues on the pace of rate hikes in the months to come.
A poll of 100 economists conducted last week showed the Fed was certain to push interest rates up by 25 basis points to 1.00 percent-1.25 percent at its June 13-14 meeting.  
However, the conviction for a move beyond a widely expected rise this month has faded for many forecasters along with the outlook for inflation for most.
"(We) expect Asian bourses to continue to tread water with a topping of caution ahead of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)," OCBC Bank said in a note.
The positive sentiment across the region was also supported by oil prices, which edged up following statements that OPEC leader Saudi Arabia was making significant supply cuts to customers.  
Vietnam  .VNI  extended gains to post its highest close in over nine years, underpinned by financial and industrial stocks.
Gains on the benchmark index were broad-based with eight of nine sectors in positive territory.
Singapore shares  .STI  shed the previous day's losses, boosted by gains in the city-state's "big three" banks.
The final first-quarter jobless rate was revised down from the preliminary estimate of 2.3 percent.  

Indonesia  .JKSE  edged higher, led by gains in consumer staples.
Indonesia's central bank is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged on Thursday, just hours after the Fed
decides on interest rates, a Reuters poll showed.  
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed lower with real-estate stocks accounting for nearly half of the losses.
The country has been seeing a violent conflict in the southern town of Marawai, where a siege by fighters allied to
Islamic State, has stoked concerns of instability among Southeast Asian nations.

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
