Vietnam index falls near 4-wk low on strong sale

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  dipped 0.37 percent to close at the lowest level in nearly a month as investors extended selling to the third day.
The index ended at 581.67 points on Wednesday, the lowest since March 7, having fallen around 4 percent since the beginning of last week, Reuters data showed.
 Almost two thirds of shares fell, based on Reuters data, partly due to offloading from investors who wanted to reduce borrowing on margin, said deputy manager Nguyen Hoai Nam at Maybank Kim Eng Securities.

 "Investors who traded stocks on margin fear multiple losses as stocks fell," he said, referring to trading in stocks using funds borrowed from brokerage firms.
Food producer Masan Group  led the losses, with shares dropping 2.11 percent, followed by technology firm FPT Corp   that decreased 1.45 percent.
The next support level is at around 565 points, where stocks prices could become attractive to investors, analysts said.

SE Asia Stocks-Philippine outperforms amid inflows

Philippine shares scaled their five-month peaks on Wednesday after gains in large caps and foreign fund inflows while shares in political crisis-hit
Thailand eked out further gains to a near 1,400 mark helped by selective buying in banking stocks.
The Philippine main index  <.PSI>  closed up 1.1 percent at 6,587.72, the highest since Oct. 30. Shares of Megaworld Corp  , Ayala Corp   and Univeral Robina Corp  
were top three percentage gainers on the benchmark.
The exchange posted net inflows for a sixth consecutive session, with foreign investors buying a net 1.4 billion pesos ($31.26 million).  
The rally came ahead of March inflation data due out on Friday, which analysts said the annual inflation may have quickened slightly in the month and the central bank is expected
to take further policy tightening measures, perhaps as early as next month.  ID:nL4N0MT2O1  
Thai index   rose 0.7 percent, taking its gain in four sessions since March 28 to 3.0 percent. Siam Commercial Bank   and Kasikornbank  were among the
outperformers in part due to hopes about their quarterly earnings results.
Brokers said technical indicators were supportive to the market but political risks remained, denting the growth prospect on the domestic economy and corporate earnings.  
In Kuala Lumpur, investors bought battered plantation stocks such as PPB Group   as palm oil futures rebounded from recent falls.
Stocks in Indonesia   pared midsession gains while  Singapore  fell for the first time in six sessions amid selling in rallying telecoms firms Singapore Telecommunications
and Telkom Indonesia.

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
