SE Asia Stocks-Slump as Britain votes to exit EU

Southeast Asian stocks were rattled on Friday after Britons voted to leave the European Union in a historic divorce, sparking a panic selloff in risky assets worldwide as investors bet on safe-havens such as gold.  
World financial markets plunged after nearly 52 percent of Britons turned their back on the 28-nation bloc, forcing the resignation of U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and creating the biggest global financial shock since the 2008 economic crisis.  
Brexit rocked commodity markets as well, as oil and copper prices slumped, while safer assets such as gold raced to hit
more than two-year highs.  
"Certainly, the uncertainty quotient is going to shoot up over the next few days, as markets digest the ramifications of
Brexit," said Vishnu Varathan, a senior economist at Mizuho Bank Ltd in Singapore.  
Investors could continue to be risk-averse in the short term while the dollar and gold could strengthen further, he added.
The sterling sank 10 percent in value to its weakest since before the 1985 Plaza Accord on Friday, triggering a global rush
of capital into the traditional security of the yen and the Swiss franc.  
"The effect of this exit is pretty much still a question mark," said Alex Tiu of AB Capital Securities Inc in Manila,
adding investors would be on a wait-and-watch mode.
"This is going to be an isolated case," said Manny Cruz of Asiasec Equities Inc. The Brexit effects won't be long term,
unless other members of the bloc decide to leave the EU, he said.
Singapore  .STI  ended down 2.1 percent, its lowest close since May 13, as banking stocks took a hit. The index lost 1
percent on the week.  
DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  fell 2.7 percent, while United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  shed 2.3 percent.  
Philippines  .PSI  finished down nearly 2 percent after hitting a 13-month high in early trade.  
In a reaction to the Brexit vote, the country's central bank said more volatility can be expected in domestic markets in the
near term, but it was ready to provide liquidity as needed.
Vietnam  .VNI  also closed nearly 2 percent lower, with trading volumes on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange surging to its
highest since June 2014 at 270 million shares.
Jakarta  .JKSE  closed down nearly 1 percent, led by consumer cyclicals.  
"The current reaction of the market is flight to safety," said Taye Shim, a strategist with Daewoo Securities in Indonesia. "The long term impact would depend on how the value of the dollar would unfold."
The Brexit impact would be much lesser for Southeast Asian regions, particularly Indonesia, which has low trade ties with Europe, Shim said.

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
