SE Asia Stocks-Thailand snaps four-day losing streak

Thai stocks closed nearly half a percent higher on Thursday, snapping a four-day losing streak, while most other Southeast Asian markets declined on soft Chinese data.
The Thai stock index  .SETI  had fallen every day this week following a statement by the palace on Sunday that King Bhumibol Adulyadej was in an "unstable condition" after receiving haemodialysis treatment. 
The palace said late on Wednesday that the health of the 88-year-old King had "overall not yet stabilised".  
Thursday's gains were led by consumer staples and industrials, with Charoen Pokphand Foods Pcl  CPF.BK  and
Airports of Thailand Pcl  AOT.BK  rising 5.2 percent and 1.7 percent respectively.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  fell just over 1 percent, touching its lowest since Sept. 19, after Chinese data showed a sharp decline in exports, reviving concerns about the health of the world's second-biggest economy.
China's exports fell 10 percent in September from a year earlier, far worse than the expected 3 percent fall, while
imports unexpectedly shrank after picking up in August. That left the trade surplus for the month at $41.99 billion, compared with a $53 billion expected by analysts.   
Risk appetite also remained subdued by a report that the Bank of Japan was likely to trim its inflation forecast for the
next fiscal year in a quarterly review.  
"It is an amalgamation of uncertainty and unfavourable market conditions right now. The markets are reacting to a very
gloomy sentiment," said Victor Felix, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
The Manila market  .PSI  fell for the seventh consecutive session to post its lowest close since late May.  
Financial and real estate sectors led the fall, with property developer SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  and real
estate conglomerate Ayala Land Inc  ALI.PS  shedding over 5 and 4 percent respectively.
Singapore stocks  .STI  fell to their lowest in three months, pulled down by industrials and consumer services.
Indonesia  .JKSE  declined 0.5 percent, while Vietnam  .VNI  posted a 0.4 percent gain.

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
