ASEAN STOCK WATCH 20 March 2010

Thai stocks broke a 20-month record on Friday as investors bought banks and energy shares as confidence returned in its economy.Most other ASEAN stock markets flat lined or struggled to small gains.

Singapore and Indonesia each posted modest rises while Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam closed the day in a negative territory. The ASEAN markets rested today after a week of good gains that followed a pledge by the U.S. Federal Reserve to keep rates near zero, which bolstered equities returns and fueled expectations of a domestic consumption recovery that attracted foreign funds.

In Bangkok, the SET sky-rocketed 2.1 percent to its best intraday peak since June 30, 2008, with bank shares surging a staggering 3.9 percent to the highest since October, 2007.

PTT rose 1.6 percent and its energy unit PTT Exploration gained 1.4 percent. Thailand
rose 5.6 percent for the week, ASEAN’s best performer.

Indonesia’s posted a 2.87 percent gain for the week.

Monday will test the exchanges after India announced a rate rise that flattened the New York markets.
