SE Asia Stocks-Mixed as investors await BOJ, Fed decisions

Southeast Asian markets ended mixed on Tuesday as uncertainty over policy moves by the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan kept investors on the sidelines.
The Federal Open Market Committee is expected to stand pat on interest rates, while the BOJ is expected to make crucial changes to its easing programme.
A Reuters poll of economists found on Tuesday that the BOJ is expected to further ease its ultra-loose policies at this
week's meeting, as it struggles to overcome chronic stagnation and quell speculation that it is running out of options.
Economists were largely split over whether the BOJ's next move would be to cut its negative interest rate even deeper, or
to ramp up or recalibrate its asset purchase programme, or even do both.  
Statements from the central bank's officials also suggested that there is room to cut interest rates further, despite
criticism that they are hurting financial institutions and even damaging economic sentiment, adding to the speculation that the
BOJ will in fact take easing measures.  
"Given monetary easing is the current consensus, no actions from BOJ might lead to further disappointment after the European
Central Bank's disappointing rate decision," Daewoo Securities analyst Taye Shim said in a note.
Investors will maintain a wait-and-see stance, and will follow Wall Street movements closely, said Grace Aller of AP
Securities in Manila.
Thai shares  .SETI  extended their morning losses to snap five sessions of gains, underperforming other markets in the region.
Financials led losses, with Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK  shedding 1.3 percent.
Energy stocks, Thailand's third largest sector by market value, also dropped on a decline in global oil prices after Venezuela said global supplies needed to fall by 10 percent in order to bring production down to consumption levels.  
Vietnam  .VNI  reversed its morning losses and ended 0.8 percent higher, extending yesterday's gain, with utilities supporting the uptrend.
Philippine shares  .PSI  extended morning session gains to end 1.3 percent higher, supported by financials.
SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  advanced 3.2 percent.
 A Reuters poll showed the Philippine central bank is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate steady on Thursday.
The poll also showed that if inflation picks up and the U.S. Fed tightens its policy, the Philippine central bank may turn hawkish next year.

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
