SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia hits over 4-wk high on rupiah surge

Indonesian stocks recouped early losses to hit their highest in more than four weeks on Tuesday after the rupiah  IDR=ID  surged to a 17-month peak on likely inflows from a tax amnesty programme.  
The Indonesian currency hits its highest level since April 2015 on suspected inflows into the first phase of the country's
tax amnesty programme, where participants will be charged with the lowest fee and which ends on Sept. 30.  
Risk appetite also improved after investors judged U.S. Democrat presidential runner Hillary Clinton the winner of the first debate with Republican opponent Donald Trump.  
In signs that investors awarded the debate to Clinton, Asian shares recovered from an early bout of nerves, while most
regional currencies strengthened including the Philippine peso, which rebounded after hitting a 7-year low early in the day.
Basic materials and energy stocks led gains in Indonesia  .JKSE  with Vale Indonesia Tbk PT  INCO.JK  and J Resources Asia Pasifik Tbk PT  PSAB.JK  among the best performers.
"Trump is not very foreign-friendly," said Harry Su, an analyst with Jakarta-based Bahana Securities. A win for Hillary would benefit Southeast Asian countries, particularly Indonesia
because "we are basically Islamic-based," he added.
Trump is seen as negative for emerging Asian countries as he is perceived to be more protectionist on international trade, vowing to renegotiate some trade agreements.  
Singapore shares  .STI  closed higher with blue-chips such as Singapore Airlines  SIAL.SI  and Singapore Telecommunications Ltd  STEL.SI  among the top gainers.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  fell for the third straight session, dragged down by consumer non-cyclicals and financial stocks. JG Summit Holdings Inc  JGS.PS  and BDO Unibank Inc  BDO.PS  were among the top losers.
Vietnam stocks  .VNI  closed up over 1 percent, driven by gains in financials and energy sector.

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.
