SE Asia Stocks-Most down; Philippines extends fall


 * Philippine shares fall over 1 pct on rising oil prices
 * Indonesia ends lower after rupiah breaks 20-year low
 * Singapore manufacturing data awaited
      
Oct 2 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Tuesday as investors turned cautious after the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) said trade disputes and tariffs are starting to dim the outlook for global growth.
    
IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde on Monday said growth was at its highest level since 2011, but had plateaued, with fewer countries participating in the expansion.
     
Meanwhile, oil prices hit their highest level since November 2014 on Tuesday and Brent crude was near a 4-year peak.
    
The Manila index  .PSI  closed 1.2 percent lower as higher crude oil prices worsened inflationary and monetary policy concerns. The real estate sector, led by a 5.1 percent slide in SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  and a 3.2 percent fall in Ayala Land  ALI.PS , was the biggest drag on the index.
    
"The weakness today is due to the continued rise in global oil prices. Philippines being an importer of oil, higher global oil prices could accelerate inflation concerns even more," said Charles William Ang, associate analyst at COL Financial Group Inc.
    
"The (Philippine) central bank might be forced to raise interest rates to control inflation, and higher interest rates
would be bad for equities."
    
Last week, the Philippine central bank had raised interest rates for the fourth time in five months and had kept the door open for further tightening.
    
Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  erased early gains and ended 1.2 percent lower as investors looked to reduce their exposure amid a falling rupiah  IDR=  that broke a 20-year low. The currency lost nearly 1 percent to the dollar for the day.  
    
"I think it's more of a sentiment issue. It's beyond Indonesia's control ... all they can do is to counter these
internally," said Taye Shim, head of research at Mirae Asset Sekuritas in Indonesia, referring to global uncertainties and factors.
    
The materials and financial sectors were the biggest drags on the index. Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper Tbk  INKP.JK  and Bank Mandiri (Persero) Tbk  BMRI.JK  fell 6.3 percent and 3.7 percent, respectively.
    
Thai shares  .SETI  closed 0.7 percent lower while the Singapore index  .STI  ended 0.4 percent weaker.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

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
