SE Asia Stocks-Most rise on local buying; foreign investors away

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Friday, in line with Asian peers as a U.S. holiday helped slow a rally in the dollar that has absorbed capital out of most emerging markets.
Foreign investors, who have been selling emerging-market assets on expectations that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's
policies would lead to a rise in interest rates and the dollar, were absent for the Thanksgiving holiday.
"It's mostly locals buying into the markets. I think it (Thanksgiving holiday) opened up trading opportunity for the
locals," said Grace Aller, an analyst with AP Securities.
The dollar rose to an eight-month high against the yen on Friday as U.S. bond yields resumed their rise in Asia after the
Thanksgiving break shut markets in the United States.   
Strong U.S. manufacturing and consumer data this week have also bolstered the surge in the dollar.
Recent robust data from the United States and China showed that the world's largest economies are doing well.  

This shows that the major economies are steadying, easing the flow of bad economic data into smaller markets by removing external headwinds, Aller said.  
Singapore shares  .STI  rose for a fourth straight session, helped by consumer and financial stocks, and added 0.7 percent this week in their third straight weekly gain.
Agribusiness group Wilmar International Ltd  WLIL.SI climbed 3.76 percent, while DBS Group Holdings Ltd  DBSM.SI  gained 1.5 percent.
Sentiment was also buoyed by the city-state's stronger-than-expected manufacturing growth in October.  urn:newsml:reuters.
Thai shares  .SETI  rose for the fourth session in five, led by consumer and healthcare stocks, and posted a weekly gain of 1.8 percent.  
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  rose marginally and logged a weekly gain of 0.2 percent, their first in four weeks.  
Government data out earlier in the day showed that Malaysia's consumer price index  MYCPI=ECI  increased 1.4 percent from a year earlier, slightly slower than the previous month's pace.  
Bucking the trend, Vietnam shares  .VNI  fell for a second session, but gained 0.4 percent for 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
