SE Asia Stocks-Rally as Brexit concerns wane

Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on  Monday, in line with Asian peers, as increased possibility of  Britain remaining in the European Union lifted risk appetite across the board.

Britons will cast their votes this Thursday in a referendum on whether to quit the EU.  
The implied probability of a British vote to remain in the  European Union rose to 72 percent on Monday, up from a range
between 60 and 67 percent on Friday, according to Betfair betting odds.*:nU8N16U02K
Three opinion polls ahead of Thursday's vote also showed the 'Remain' camp recovering some momentum, although the overall
picture remained one of an evenly split electorate. 
"Perception is that the British public is likely to vote in  favour of remaining in the EU. If that is the case, it would remove the overhang of risk in the markets," said Nirgunan  Tiruchelvam, an analyst with Religare Capital Markets in Singapore.  
There were fears that a "no" vote would be disruptive to the markets and that seems to have dissipated, he added.
Safe-haven assets and currencies like gold, government bonds and the yen retreated, while higher oil prices bolstered
investor sentiment.  
Singapore stocks  .STI  closed more than 1 percent higher, led by oil and gas stocks, as a weaker dollar and easing worries
over Britain's possible exit from the EU helped support crude prices. 
Keppel Corp Ltd  KPLM.SI  rose 2.2 percent, while Sembcorp Indu stries Ltd  SCIL.SI  gained 3.3 percent.
The Philippine market  .PSI  closed 0.6 percent higher, with consumer cyclicals such as SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  and
Bloomberry Resorts Corp  BLOOM.PS  leading the gainers.
"We are nearing our presidential inauguration. Things are looking more positive for the Philippines," said Joseph Roxas,
an a nalyst with Eagle Equities.

"There is a lot of hope in the incoming president."
Philippines President-elect Rodrigo Duterte is to begin a six-year term on June 30.  
The new economic team under Duterte on Monday promised changes to boost infrastructure, fix traffic woes, improve
investment frameworks and maintain the country's robust economic grow th.   
Vietnam  .VNI  was up more than 1 percent, as oil and gasstocks such as Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  rose,
while Indonesia  .JKSE  ended higher, helped by energy shares.   
Earlier, Asian stocks gained, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up 1.3

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
