SE Asia Stocks-Most markets fall on strong dollar; Vietnam down 2.9 pct

    * Philippines falls for fifth straight session
    * Vietnam marks near five-month closing low
    * Indonesia snaps three straight sessions of fall

    By Karthika Suresh Namboothiri

    May 22 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fellon Tuesday, with Vietnam shedding 2.9 percent, as a strong dollar crimped demand for emerging-market assets.

    The dollar hovered near a five-month high against a basket of currencies, boosted by easing U.S.-China trade tensions.
    "As with the running trend over the past weeks, investors found themselves leaning towards DM (developed-market) assets more so than their EM (emerging-market) counterparts," OCBC Treasury Research said in a note.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  fell 0.5 percent with Telekom Malaysia  TLMM.KL  closing more than 11 percent lower on weak quarterly earnings, while electricity producer and distributor Tenaga Nasional  TENA.KL  dropped 2 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  declined 0.4 percent, dragged by energy stocks. Gas supplier PTT PCL  PTT.BK  was the biggest drag with a fall of 2.6 percent.  
Philippine stocks  .PSI  extended their fall into a fifth session and closed 0.2 percent lower, while Singapore shares
 .STI  erased early gains to end marginally lower.
The city-state's annual headline inflation rate likely rose in April from last month, a Reuters poll showed. The data is
expected on Wednesday.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  fell 3.8 percent in intraday trading, the sharpest since Feb. 9, before recovering slightly to close near a five-month low.
Vietnam shares have shed over 16 percent in the second quarter of the year, after gaining 19.3 percent in the first
three months.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  snapped three straight sessions of decline and closed 0.3 percent higher.
Automotive distributor Astra International  ASII.JK  ended 6.5 percent higher, while Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  rose 1.6 percent.
"The investment landscape for Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia, has been very weak, evident by the depreciating local currency," said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
However, the positive news flow from U.S.-China trade tensions, served as a catalyst for (Indonesian) equity markets, and is what the market needed most at this point of time, Shim added.
China and the United States stepped back from the brink of a global trade war and agreed to hold further talks.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
