SE Asia Stocks-Cautious ahead of ECB meet; Thailand falls more than 2 pct

Most Southeast Asian stock markets were sluggish on Thursday, with Thailand falling more than 2 percent, as investors waited for a crucial European Central Bank meeting later in the day for clues regarding its monetary policy.
Nearly all analysts polled by Reuters expect ECB rates to remain unchanged, though there is speculation that President Mario Draghi will announce an extension of its 80 billion euro of monthly asset buys.    
Investors also shrugged off data showing China's August exports fell less than markets had expected, while imports unexpectedly expanded for the first time in nearly two years.
Thai shares  .SETI  ended down 2.1 percent, their lowest close in two months. Siam Commercial Bank Pcl  SCB.BK  lost 1.3 percent, while Siam Cement Pcl  SCC.BK  was down 1.5 percent.
Boost from ECB (meet) and Chinese data may not be that beneficial for the Thai market in the near term as local factors might trigger a correction, said Rakpong Chaisuparakul, an analyst with KGI Securities Thailand.
"Thailand may continue to underperform in the near term," he said.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  closed 0.7 percent higher, snapping four sessions of losses. Utilities and healthcare stocks led the index with Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  rising 2.4 percent and Dhg Pharmaceutical Joint-Stock Co  DHG.HM  gaining 3
The Vietnamese market has not been following the regional trend over the last few days with some buying opportunities emerging during the day, said Fiachra MacCana, head of research at Ho Chi Minh Securities.
"The underlying trend is unclear with the market bumping into stiff resistance at higher price points," MacCana said.
Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.6 percent higher, after falling to its lowest in more than 2 months in early trade.
Financials and telecom stocks led the gainers with Ayala Land Inc  ALI.PS  rising 0.7 percent, while PLDT Inc  TEL.PS  was up 3.2 percent.
Singapore  .STI  was flat, while Indonesian shares  .JKSE  fell marginally.
As of 0940 GMT, broader Asian shares were up marginally, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  gaining 0.2 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


Indonesia  to launch 13th economic package this month

Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said on Wednesday that the government would release its 13th economic policy package in August, adding that the draft had been completed.

Darmin said the 13th package was largely an extension of the previous one, but would expand its focus beyond industry. The 12th package focused on small and medium enterprises.

"We are just waiting to schedule a meeting with the president," Darmin told reporters at his office. He refused to give the exact date the new policy package would come into effect.

 The ministry team must meet with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo one more time to finalize the details, Darmin said.
