SE Asia Stocks-Decline as Trump tax plan hits sentiment

Southeast Asian stock markets, except Vietnam, slipped on Thursday, in line with regional currencies
and equities that lost their appeal after U.S. President Donald Trump's proposal for a tax overhaul lifted the dollar and bond yields.
Trump proposed on Wednesday the biggest tax reform in three decades, a plan that would also lower corporate and
small-business income tax rates, but could add trillions of dollars to the deficit.  

"Basically, today's story is depreciation in currencies - the Asian forex, due to a strong rise in the U.S. dollar," said
Rakpong Chaisuparakul, an analyst with Bangkok-based KGI Thailand.  
"Equity flow is slowing alongside the currencies, net foreign buying in most countries in Asia is slowing since
The dollar index  .DXY , which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, climbed to a one-month high, while the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield  US10YT=RR  rose to its highest since July 13.  
The dollar's strength also helped pull down Asian shares  .MIAPJ0000PUS  to one-month lows.
Asian currencies took a beating after Trump's tax proposal, with the Thai baht  THB=TH  and the Indonesian rupiah  IDR=   declining about half a percent on Thursday.
As well, foreign investors have sold shares worth about $700 million in Indonesia this month, and about $1 billion each in India and South Korea.  
In Southeast Asia, Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.8 percent lower on profit-booking, hit by industrials and
financials. The index touched a record high last week.
JG Summit Holdings  JGS.PS , the top loser, shed as much as 3.3 percent.
"It is still some profit-taking but I think this is a healthy correction and looking forward, a further advance in the
index could still be justified, particularly with our forecasted earnings growth for the year," said Jeffrey Lucero,
an equity research analyst with Manila-based RCBC Securities.  
Singapore  .STI  dropped 0.3 percent, dragged down by financials and telecom stocks.
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  snapped six straight sessions of gains to close 0.5 percent lower.  
The Thai index  .SETI  fell 0.2 percent, reversing early gains, as energy stocks and financials dropped.  
Oil and gas company PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  fell about 1 percent.  
Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  lost 0.4 percent each, while Vietnam  .VNI  rose slightly as consumer staples
gained, with beer maker Sabeco  SAB.HM  up 4.4 percent.

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
