SE Asia Stocks-Higher tracking Asian shares after BOJ overhauls monetary policy

Most Southeast Asian stock markets recovered from losses earlier in the day to end higher, echoing a surge in wider Asian stocks after the Bank of Japan said it would overhaul monetary policy and steepen the yield curve.
At a two-day rate review that ended on Wednesday, the BOJ abandoned its base money target and adopted "yield curve control" under which it will buy long-term government bonds to keep 10-year bond yields at current levels of around zero percent.   
Earlier, Japanese stocks rallied, with the Nikkei  .N225 and the Topix  .TOPX  indexes rising 1.9 percent and 2.7 percent, respectively, after the BOJ said 2.7 trillion yen ($26.60 billion) of its exchange traded fund purchases would be linked to the bank-heavy Topix index.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was up 0.7 percent.
We expect most Asian shares to keep climbing in the short-term, and the yen to continue falling after today's announcement, said Victor Felix, an analyst with AB Capital Securities Inc.
The yen recovered from lows on Wednesday, with investors sceptical about whether the Bank of Japan's latest measures will be enough to generate inflation.  FRX/  
Thai shares  .SETI  led the region, their sixth gain in seven sessions, with financials rising the most.
Siam Commercial Bank  SCB.BK  was up 1 percent.
 Energy companies also rose after global oil prices jumped more than 1 percent, helped by a reported draw in U.S. crude inventories and a strike by oil services workers in Norway that threatened to impact output.
PTT PCL  PTT.BK , Thailand's largest energy firm, climbed .2 percent.
Indonesia  .JKSE  closed 0.8 percent higher, buoyed by consumer discretionary and financial stocks.
Indonesia's central bank will likely cut its benchmark interest rate for the fifth time this year on Thursday to try to spur economic growth, a Reuters poll showed.*:nL3N1BV1OX
Malaysia  .KLSE  was up slightly, with data on Wednesday showing inflation rose faster than expected in August and above the previous month's pace.*:nL3N1BX18S
Vietnam  .VNI  rose 0.8 percent on gains in financial stocks.
Singapore  .STI  was down marginally, while Philippine shares  .PSI  ended flat.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
