 MARKET SNAPSHOT
 * Jakarta composite index dropped 0.15 percent on
Thursday while most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher
after a rangebound session ahead of the European Central Bank's
policy decision, with Singapore led by gains in developers
supported by strong property demand.
 * Asian shares paused on Friday, pressured by falls
overnight in global shares as sentiment remained cautious
despite new stimulus steps taken by three major central banks,
with focus now pinned to the U.S. jobs data due later in the
day. 
 * U.S. stocks edged down on Thursday as economic stimulus
measures by major central banks failed to excite investors
before a U.S. jobs report expected to show tepid growth. 
 * Malaysian crude palm oil futures rose to the highest in
more than five weeks on Thursday, as investors anticipated a
dry-weather rally would continue after U.S. markets reopened
from a holiday. 
 * U.S. corn surged 5 percent on Thursday to its highest
price in over a year and soybeans jumped to within sight of
their record high as new forecasts offered no sign of rain
relief for withering crops. 
 * Brent crude oil futures rose on Thursday, ending at a
five-week high on worries about tighter supplies following a
lockout of striking oil workers in Norway and hopes that some
policy-easing steps by some central banks would improve oil
demand.
