    Korn: SET plunge normal

    Korn: SET plunge normal

    The stock market's plummet on Monday was not out of the ordinary, Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij said after the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) composite index sank below the benchmark 1,000-point level.

    "Selling off shares is about decision making and fluctuations are normal in regional markets.

    "As for the plunge, I haven't seen any major factors affecting the market," Mr Korn said.

    The SET index dived 41.43 points, or 4.12 per cent, to stand at 965.14 points around 4pm today.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Thai Stocks Fall Most in 15 Months, Baht Declines on Rising Political Risk
    Yumi Teso
    Jan 24, 2011

    Thailand’s benchmark stock index dropped by the most in 15 months and the baht weakened as nationalist protesters said they will begin rallies to call for stronger action in a border dispute with Cambodia.

    The benchmark SET Index of shares slid 4.2 percent after the People’s Alliance for Democracy, which seized Bangkok’s airports for eight days in 2008, said it members will rally “indefinitely” starting tomorrow to pressure the government to revoke past border agreements with Cambodia. Stocks in other Southeast Asian markets also fell on concern inflation will accelerate and lead to increased borrowing costs.

    “Sentiment for the Asean stocks has been quite bearish on inflation and rate hike concerns,” said Masahiko Ejiri, a Tokyo-based senior fund manager at Mizuho Asset Management Co., which oversees the equivalent of $41 billion. “Amid already weak sentiment you have a story about a political rally in Thailand. That doesn’t help stocks at all.”

    The baht declined 0.7 percent to 30.91 per dollar as of 4:14 p.m. in Bangkok and earlier touched 30.92, the weakest level since Sept. 16, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The SET Index fell 4.2 percent to 964.50, poised for its biggest drop since October 2009.

    Global funds sold 7.7 billion baht ($250 million) more local shares than they bought on Jan. 21, the most since May, taking this month’s net sales to $823 million, according to stock exchange data.

    “The political concern led the stocks lower and that led the baht lower today,” said Nalin Chutchotitham, a Bangkok- based analyst at Kasikornbank Pcl.

    Cambodia Conflict

    The group is demanding that Thailand drop out of the United Nations’ World Heritage Committee, cancel a 2000 agreement with Cambodia on border negotiations and urge Cambodians to withdraw from disputed border areas, leader Chamlong Srimuang said today.

    Government bonds gained for a second day. The yield on the 3.125 percent debt due December 2015 fell two basis points, or 0.02 percentage point, to 3.21 percent, according to Bloomberg data. The one-year onshore interest-rate swap, the fixed cost needed to receive a floating payment, rose 2.5 basis points to 1.785 percent.

    Thai bourse loses more than 4 per cent on China jitters
    Jan 24, 2011

    Bangkok - The Thai stock market fell 4.26 per cent Monday on jitters over expectations that China will raise bank interest rates to cool inflation, brokers said.

    The Stock Exchange of Thailand index fell 42.89 points to 963.68, crashing through the 1,000-point psychological barrier for the first time this year.

    'The main concern among investors was that China is planning to raise interest rates to cool local inflation,' said Chaiyot Jirankul, an analyst at Country Group Securities.

    A massive outflow of foreign investments in shares weakened the baht currency which was trading at 30.92 to the dollar, the lowest rate in three months.

    Brokers and government officials downplayed Thailand's political instability as a leading factor for the plunge, the steepest in Asia on Monday.

    'Fluctuations are normal in regional markets,' Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij told reporters.

    Anti-government, ultra nationalist groups are planning a rally in Bangkok Tuesday to protest against the government's handling of a border conflict with neighbouring Cambodia.

    'If there is an impact from the protest, it will be seen tomorrow, not today,' Chaiyot said.

    Or you can ask people that have been right for the last 10 years on the long term direction of the world markets. Look at the archives.

    Austrian economists like Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Max kieser and Marc Faber. Austrians are not guessing, that is what sets them apart.

    Max Kieser made a documentary in 2007 predicting the collapse of Iceland before it happened, most people know of Peter Schiffs record of predicting the collapse of lehman bros, Fanny mae ect.

    Europe and the US are devaluing and inflating their way out of trouble. The Baht will continue to strengthen against the Dollar and the Euro accordingly.

    SET plunge stems from normal profit-taking, says BoT


    SET plunge stems from normal profit-taking, says BoT


    วันอังคาร ที่ 25 ม.ค. 2554



    BANGKOK, Jan 25 – A plunge in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) composite index in the past few days stemmed from normal profit-taking by investors, not by any fundamental change in the country’s economic basis, according to the Bank of Thailand.

    Mathee Supapongse, senior director of the BoT Domestic Economy Department, said risk factors to the economy at present are not different from what the central bank anticipated and many economic think tanks forecast earlier.

    He said the sharp fall in the index late last week and early this week had probably come from normal sell-offs for profit-taking by investors.

    Even so, the central bank will closely monitor the situation before the cause of the plunge is identified.

    “The current economic fundamentals should not be a key factor behind the share dumping by investors. We cannot identify the cause of the SET plunge now because we have to wait for clear information first,” he said.

    The BoT forecast the economy this year would grow 3-5 per cent on the assumption that the core and general inflation rates stay at 2-3 per cent and 2.5-4.5 per cent respectively, and the economic fundamentals remain strong.

    Somboon Chitphentom, director of the BoT Prudential Policy Department, said the Thai economy had not yet experienced additional risk factors to the extent the central bank expected earlier.

    Such factors include the slower-than-expected economic recovery of Thailand’s trade partners, international capital movement, and domestic political uncertainties.

    The SET index plummeted by 42.89 to 963.68 points on Monday’s trading with a daily trade value of Bt37.4 billion. Foreign investors had a net selling of Bt4.05 billion. (MCOT online news)

    Jim Rogers has been a constant media presence for many years, accurately predicted the current boom-bust. He uses every opportunity to explain his economic rationale by his investment outlook, which is solidly rooted Austrian theory, not only of business cycles but of the costs of the welfare-warfare state.

    He is an Austrian.

    I should have said "out of debt"

    Inflate asset values and the debt diminishes.

    So does all credibility.
