    Morning Markets: Skittish stocks boost safe havens
    The impact of disappointing China trade data was felt in Asia today as APAC bourses followed Wall Street into the red on a broad risk-off mood. Today sees the US out with a retail sales print and a speech from Fed chair Janet Yellen, both of which could move the dollar and equities if there are any surprises.

    USDTHB has moved decisively higher over the past couple of sessions. I usually don't follow emerging markets, but the King's health is not good.

    USDTHB was around 40-45 after the Asian crisis, before the dotcom bust and before the financial crisis (which first weakened BHT, then strengthened it as carry trades favored it). Then the Fed's tapering and first rate hike hurt all emerging market-currencies.

    The USDTHB has just broken higher from a flag-like pattern and seems ready to move higher.

    I was contemplating moving on this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see a possibility to short THB in my saxo account right?

    I am not sure, but USDTHB looks like a tradable pair - have you checked margin requirements?

    Morning Report APAC: Asian equities feel the boost
    With the US out of the picture last night, European stock markets showed little gains. By comparison, Asia is surging ahead. Most Asian equity markets were rising strongly this morning while the USD remains flat to weak on the back of Friday's ordinary US jobs data. Oil remains resilient in early trade.

    Thai economy to slow as foreign investment plummets

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Thailand saw a huge plunge in foreign investment in 2015, mostly due to changes to its foreign investment rules, implemented in January last year. This will likely slow the country's already sluggish economy, since investment accounts for about 50% of Thailand's total domestic investments. According to Thailand's Board of Investment, investment applications by foreign businesses tumbled by 98% in value to just 12.7bn baht in December last year from a year earlier, the lowest level in nine months. The drop is attributed to a rush of demand at the end of 2014 ahead of the new rules. While the Thai government aims to increase foreign investment applications by 320% this year, many foreign companies remain cautious about making new investments in the southeast Asian country.

    Daily Shot: Let's talk about FX
    Some emerging market currency declines against the dollar have been spectacular, with the Brazilian real the major causality. But the falls are not limited to emerging economies, with the likes of the Canadian, Australian and New Zealand dollars all suffering.

    Falling ruble sparks fears of another Asian crisis

    Nikkei Asian Review
    The tumbling ruble has triggered fears of another Asian currency crisis. Recent market moves invoke memories of the 1997 crisis, when a plunge in the Thai baht triggered an outflow of funds from Asia. Authorities tried to curb this by selling dollars and buying their own currencies, but to no avail. Thailand and Indonesia depleted their reserves in the process, and the IMF stepped in to help. Fortunately the region is now better prepared to deal with selling pressures on their currencies. Meanwhile views are mixed about the outlook for southeast Asia. Emerging economies, such as Indonesia and Thailand, seem to be slowing, while still showing more promise than Europe and Japan. Some observers believe equities and currencies in Indonesia and Thailand are being oversold. Others are more cautious, expecting market volatility to last for a few years.
