SE Asia Stocks-Firmer after Yellen's comment; Singapore outperforms

All Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday as risk appetite improved after Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's comment hosed down expectations of any imminent hike in U.S. interest rates.
Yellen on Tuesday emphasised global dangers to growth and inflation, and thus the need to proceed "cautiously" on
tightening policy.  
Singapore's Straits Time Index  .STI  jumped 1.9 percent to a one-week closing high, led by financials, while the Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  added 0.7 percent.  
Thailand  .SETI  rose 1.3 percent to its highest close in nearly five months, led by financials, amid a net foreign inflow
of $242.74 million, while Malaysia  .KLSE  closed 0.2 percent higher with a $101.92 million net foreign inflow.
"Yellen's cautious tone on Fed fund rate rising pace helped to spur the regional market sentiment," said Teerada
Charnyingyong, an analyst with Phillip Capital in Bangkok.
The Fei Ming, a broker with Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities, said Yellen expressed strong doubt and concern over negative externalities that could harm the U.S. recovery.
"Domestic economy, indeed, signals positive development.

But, external headwinds and 'still' low oil prices are unfavourable to the global economy which could later potentially backfire the U.S. economy," he said.
Analysts said investors are also waiting for other economic data due out this week, including China's manufacturing PMI data on Thursday and the U.S. non-farm payrolls and unemployment data on Friday.  
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  rebounded 0.3 percent from a four-week closing low in the previous session after the
Asian Development Bank raised its forecast for the country's economic growth.*:nL3N17124Z

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
