The index, Southeast Asia's best performer in 2015, lost a combined 1.1 percent this week, snapping the seven-week winning

Analysts expect the market to drop in the next few sessions due to an absence of supportive news.

SE Asia Stocks-Gain on positive U.S. econ data

Southeast Asian stocks rose on Friday,taking a cue from broader Asian shares, as positive U.S. economic data boosted risk appetite and raised expectations of an interest rate increase as early as June.  
Data out of the U.S. on Thursday showed durable goods orders, pending home sales and initial jobless claims coming in
strong, sending the dollar on track for its best monthly performance since November.   
Sentiment also improved after Group of Seven leaders said in a summit declaration that a British exit from the European Union
would be a serious risk to global economic growth, comments that found support from British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Financial markets are now looking to the revisions of U.S. first-quarter GDP data and comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen
at a Harvard University-sponsored event later on Friday.    
"Asian shares today are basically taking cues from the Western markets. The broader markets are reacting to impending
Yellen's speech, but news from the G7 meeting is a more positive stimulus for stocks in general," said Alex Tiu, senior analyst
at AB Capital Securities Inc in Manila.
"Markets will remain volatile ahead of the June Fed meeting in coming weeks. Investors are cautious, and are on 'wait and
see' mode because of the increasing odds of a rate hike.

Investors are also keeping a keen eye out for more data from the U.S."
Asian shares climbed, with the MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  up 0.9 percent
to a more than three-week high.    
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  closed 1 percent higher, led by financials. The index rose 1.4 percent this week.
"The gains in Singapore are coming from financial stocks which tend to gain from rate hikes," a Singapore-based analyst said.
DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  closed up 1.4 percent, while UOB Holdings  UOBH.SI  gained 0.9 percent.
Indonesia  .JKSE  ended in positive territory on Friday and was up 2.2 percent on the week, the biggest weekly percentage
gainer in the region.
Thai shares  .SETI  rose 0.8 percent, led by financials and energy stocks.
The index was up 1.9 percent this week, the second biggest weekly gainer.
The Philippine index  .PSI  recovered from losses earlier in the day to end higher, led by telecommunication services. The
index rose 1.5 percent this week.
Vietnam  .VNI  ended 0.6 percent higher on Friday, but fell 1.1 percent on the week.

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
