The Finance Index increased 0.18% to 16895.97 points, the Properties Index up 0.94% to 1431.7 points and the Plantation Index down 0.27% to 8953.75 points. The market traded within a range of 6.52 points between an intra-day high of 1853.88 and a low of 1847.36 during the session.

Market breadth was negative with 406 gainers as compared to 413 losers.

The KLCI closed higher at 1853.88 points on last minutes buying interest. The KLCI stayed in the red for almost the whole session amid lack of fresh market catalyst. The overnight gains of Wall Street failed to lift local market sentiment as the renewed concern over crisis in Ukraine kept the market sentiment muted.

Vietnam index ends near 2-wk low; investors cut losses

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   marked its fourth straight session of losses on Tuesday, dropping 1.68 percent to close near a two-week low as investors sold shares on expectation of further declines.
"The index is likely to drop more and could fall straight to 560 points," said analyst Phan Dung Khanh at Maybank Kim Eng Securities.     

Vietnamese equities have been trending downward over the past weeks, but steep falls were prevented by gains in select blue-chips that reported good corporate results and positive annual targets, Khanh said.
Foreign investors were net sellers of 595 billion dong ($28.2 million) worth of Vietnamese shares in the previous five consecutive sessions, exchange data showed.
Over 70 percent of shares on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange lost ground on Tuesday, led by PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's largest listed firm, which fell 1.06 percent.  
Steel producer Hoa Phat Group  dropped 4.39 percent and Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   fell 2.28 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at close

SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Singapore hits 7-mth high on share deal

Most Southeast Asian stocks gained on Tuesday, led by the Singapore market which rose on news of a $2.45 billion share buying plan by the region's
biggest property developer, while Vietnam retreated as investors cut their losses.
Shares of CapitaMalls Asia   surged 21.33 percent to a 14-month closing high after Southeast Asia's biggest property developer CapitaLand Ltd   offered to buy out minority shareholders in the Singapore-listed shopping mall operator.
The deal is aimed at simplifying CapitaLand's corporate structure and taking advantage of a discount valuation at  CapitaMalls. CapitaLand shares also jumped 6.51 percent.
The Straits Times Index  climbed 0.98 percent to close at 3246.32, the highest since September last year.
Shares in other markets also rose, with Indonesia  up 0.11 percent, Malaysia  rising 0.13 percent and the Philippine benchmark  advancing 0.49 percent.
However, the Vietnamese market tumbled due to wide-ranging offloading of equities as investors cut losses on expectations of further declines. The VN Index  marked a fourth straight fall to close down 1.68 percent, near a two-week low.
The Thai market was closed for a public holiday and will reopen on Wednesday.

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
