The FBM KLCI index gained 5.20 points or 0.29% on Thursday. The Finance Index increased 0.59% to 16847.52 points, the Properties Index up 0.63% to 1361.17 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.09% to 8326.13 points. The market traded within a range of 16.02 points between an intra-day high of 1782.72 and a low of 1766.70 during the session.
Actively traded stocks include DAYA, SONA-WA, SONA, FLONIC, CIMB, THHEAVY, UEMS, SUMATEC, MAS and CLIQ-WA. Trading volume decreased to 1458.61 mil shares worth RM2129.82 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 1918.65 mil shares worth RM3056.51 mil.
Leading Movers were BAT (+88 sen to RM62.18), GENM (+14 sen to RM4.30), UMW (+14 sen to RM14.00), MAYBANK (+14 sen to RM10.40) and HLBANK (+12 sen to RM13.92). Lagging Movers were PETGAS (-36 sen to RM20.48), PPB (-20 sen to RM14.70), MISC (-7 sen to RM5.37), PETDAG (-6 sen to RM26.74) and AMMB (-4 sen to RM7.79). Market breadth was positive with 537 gainers as compared to 233 losers.
The FBM KLCI index edged marginally higher than yesterday to close at 1,777.82 level albeit on a thin volume, down 24%. We foresee the local bourse would continue to trade sideway as the external and internal negatives still worried investors. While across the region, most markets pare down yesterday’s losses following the better-than-expected reading in China's manufacturing index.

Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, led by regional large caps, as positive  Chinese data lifted broader Asia, but Indonesia's high inflation  trimmed earlier gains in the benchmark index.  
The Jakarta's Composite Index   ended up 0.3 percent  at 4,624.34 amid weaknesses in interest rate-sensitive stocks  such as banks   and property  , with high  inflation in July raising expectations of an increase in 
interest rates.   
 Shares in PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk    led among  bottom performers, tumbling 14.4 percent after Singapore's DBS  Group Holdings Ltd    pulled the plug on a $7.2 billion  takeover of the Indonesian lender.    
Singapore-listed DBS Group shares gained 3.2 percent, outperforming the benchmark Straits Times Index  which  was up 0.7 percent.

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
