SE Asia Stocks-Gain in line with Asia as U.S. jobs data disappoints

Southeast Asian stocks closed higher on Monday, in line with Asian peers, as discouraging U.S. jobs data
diminished the possibility of a rate rise by the Federal Reserve in June. The Philippine index led the gains, rising to its
highest in 10 months.
U.S. nonfarm payrolls rose by just 38,000 last month, the smallest increase since September 2010 and well below the
expected 164,000 jobs.  
Fed funds futures rates indicated that traders see only a 6 percent chance of a Fed hike this month, down from 21 percent as recently as Thursday, according to CME Group's FedWatch tool.
A Reuters poll of Wall Street's top banks taken after the jobs figures showed that all of them expect the U.S. Federal
Reserve to leave interest rates unchanged at its June 14-15 policy meeting.   
"I guess the consensus now, in the light of Friday's data, is that the Fed will not raise interest rates," said Joseph
Roxas, an analyst with Manila-based Eagle Securities.   
"So, let the good times roll."   
Investors are also awaiting Fed chair Janet Yellen's speech at an event in Philadelphia later on Monday, her last official
remarks ahead of the pre-meeting media blackout.  
Philippine stocks  .PSI  finished over 1 percent higher, led by financials and consumer cyclicals.
Bank of the Philippine Islands  BPI.PS  and BDO Unibank  BDO.PS  were among the biggest gainers.
Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  rose 0.8 percent led by telecom and consumer staples shares.
Telecommunications firm Axiata Group  AXIA.KL  and broadcaster Astro Malaysia  ASTR.KL  were the biggest gainers on the index.
Thai shares  .SETI  edged up to a near 1-year high, led by telecom and financial stocks.
The banking index  .SETB  rose 0.6 percent with Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK  and Kasikornbank PCL  KBANK.BK  among the top gainers.    
Singapore  .STI  and Indonesia  .JKSE  rose, while Vietnam  .VNI  bucked the trend, to finish 0.3 percent lower.
Asian shares rose on Monday, with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  rising 1.02 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.
