SE Asia Stocks-Most fall on Fed rate hike chances; Indonesia down 2 pct

Southeast Asian stock markets were flat to lower as investors turned risk-averse after positive U.S. economic data and minutes from a Federal Reserve meeting increased the likelihood of an  interest rate hike next month.
New orders for U.S. manufactured capital goods rebounded in October, the latest indication of an acceleration in economic
growth early in the fourth quarter. Consumer sentiment also jumped in November in the wake of Trump's election.  

Minutes from the U.S. Fed's Nov.1-2 meeting, released on Wednesday, showed policymakers were confident that a
strengthening economy was enough to warrant interest rate increases soon.*:nTLANMEC75
The Fed meeting shows a 100 percent chance of a rate hike next month, said Joseph Roxas, an analyst at Manila-based Eagle Equities.
The rate increase and a better economy are starting to bring money back to the U.S. market and that money is probably coming
from emerging markets such as the Philippines and the rest of Asia, he said.
Indonesia  .JKSE  fell more than 1 percent to 5,148.60 as of 0500 GMT, dragged down by financials, with index heavyweight PT
Bank Mandiri (Persero) Tbk  BMRI.JK  shedding 3.4 percent.
"We expect the JCI (Jakarta Composite Index) to experience profit-taking within the range of 5,185-5,230," Trimegah
Securities said in a note.
Malaysia  .KLSE  fell 0.4 percent after rising for three straight sessions, led lower by consumer cyclicals and
Entertainment firm Genting Bhd  GENT.KL  slid 0.9 percent, while IHH Healthcare Berhad  IHHH.KL  fell 0.6 percent.
Vietnam  .VNI  lost 0.6 percent, snapping three sessions of gains, with industrials leading the losses. Faros Construction
Corporation  ROS.HM  fell 5.8 percent, while electric lighting fixtures manufacturer CII Bridges and Roads Investment  LGC.HM  
dropped 6.5 percent.
Thailand  .SETI  was down slightly, while the Philippine  .PSI  index was flat.
Singapore  .STI  cut losses after falling as much as 0.9 percent in early trade as the government slashed its economic
growth outlook and exports forecasts for 2016 after the economy contracted in the third quarter.  
In Asia, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  pulled back from a 12-day high
scaled the previous day to lose 0.5 percent.

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
