SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia, Philippines rise over 2 pct


Indonesian stocks notched up their biggest single-day percentage gain in more than six weeks on Thursday, aided by upbeat monthly trade data, while Philippine shares rose the most in four months on bargain-hunting.
    
Other Southeast Asian markets remained sluggish as uncertainty about global central banks' next steps hurt risk appetite.
    
Both the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan are scheduled to hold policy meetings next Wednesday. Sources say BOJ board members could debate cutting the bank's rates further and changes to its already massive asset-buying programme.
     
The Bank of England at its policy meeting later in the day is expected to stand pat after last month's policy easing, and provide a signal for future moves. 
    
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  closed 2.3 percent higher, with consumer cyclicals and telecom services leading the gains. PT
Astra International Tbk  ASII.JK  rose 5.5 percent, while PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Persero) Tbk  TLKM.JK  gained 4.3 percent.     
Indonesia's exports and imports declined at a far slower pace than forecast in August, data released earlier in the day showed, with non-oil and gas exports rising for the first time in 16 months.

The better-than-expected export and import data helped move the market higher, said Harry Su, an analyst with Jakarta-based Bahana Securities.
    
Philippine stocks  .PSI  rose 2.2 percent, led by financials and consumer cyclicals. SM Prime Holdings Inc  SMPH.PS  and SM Investments Corp  SM.PS  rose over 3 percent each.
    
Local investors saw heavy net foreign selling as an opportunity to enter the market again, said Victor Felix, an analyst with AB Capital Securities in Manila, adding that if the market ended higher in the next session, we might see a reversal.
    
Singapore  .STI  fell for a fourth straight session, pulled down by consumer goods and oil and gas stocks.
    
Investors are on risk-off mode as the odds for a Fed rate hike next week are creeping up, though market participants still
believe it is going to be in December after the U.S. presidential elections, said Andrew Chow, associate director at UOB Kay Hian in Singapore.

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
