SE Asia Stocks-Most end higher; Singapore closes at 8-wk high Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose
on Thursday, in line with Asia, after the U.S. Federal Reserve showed a guarded view towards inflation.
Fed policymakers had a prolonged debate about the prospects of a pickup in inflation and the path of future interest rate rises if it did not, according to the minutes of the U.S. central bank's last policy meeting released on Wednesday.
Asia took cues from Wall Street, where major indexes rose to yet another set of record closing highs overnight following a report that a market-friendly candidate was being pushed as successor to Janet Yellen at the helm of the Fed.  

Singapore shares  .STI  climbed 0.7 percent to their highest close in more than eight weeks ahead of a central bank rate decision and third-quarter GDP data on Friday.  
"We (Singapore) are also looking forward to GDP numbers which will pretty much be positive, leading to stronger
expectations from upcoming quarterly results," said Liu Jinshu, director of research at NRA Capital.     
Financials accounted for nearly half the gains with Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  closing at its highest in 11 weeks and United Overseas Bank Ltd  UOBH.SI  ending the day 0.7 percent higher.
Philippine shares  .PSI  rose 0.5 percent to their highest ever close with index heavyweights SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  and Ayala Corp  AC.PS  posting record closing levels.
"Market sentiment is pretty bullish across the region. This is due to the global bullish sentiment and there is also some  risk on appetite," said Fio Dejesus, an equity research analyst with RCBC Securities.  
"There is some resistance to the once expected Fed rate hike in December and that is reflecting on our markets," he added.  
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  climbed 0.7 percent with gains across the broad.
Bank Central Asia Tbk PT  BBCA.JK  was the biggest boost, rising more than 2 percent to a record close.
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  declined for a third straight session even after data showed the country's industrial
production  MYIP=ECI  in August expanded at its fastest pace since March 2015.

  Market            Current               Previous close      Pct Move
  Singapore        3303.09                   3280.28               0.70
  Bangkok          1712.48                   1714.14              -0.1
  Manila             8402.81                   8358.47               0.53
  Jakarta             5926.204                 5882.787             0.74
  Kuala Lumpur 1754                        1757.21              -0.18
  Ho Chi Minh     815.87                     813.95               0.24

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
