The Finance Index fell 1.05% to 16030.4 points, the Properties Index dropped 4.32% to 1249.66 points and the Plantation Index down 0.53% to 8142.62 points.

The FBM KLCI continued in a jittery mode spiralling further down by losing another 21.25 points to end at 1,701.24.

This negative performance was in tandem with the regional peers. We concurred that most investors had expected a weaker market going forward due to both internal and external factors which are unfavourable with the local bourse.

Vietnam's VN Index closed down 1 percent at 485.57 points on Tuesday in low volume, with net foreign selling for a seventh straight session prompting most local investors to opt out.

PetroVietnam Gas led the fall, dropping 2.2 percent to 67,000 dong ($3.17) per share. Real estate firms also took a slump, with VinGroup  down 1.5 percent to 64,000 dong each and HAGL dipping 1.4 percent to 20,600 dong.
Top insurer BaoViet Holdings eased 2.6 percent and Pha Lai Thermal Power    was down 4 percent.

The 27.8 million shares traded was the lowest volume since Aug. 2, data on the exchange shows. Brokers have recommended investors await better news on the economy, according to traders.

Stocks in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand extended their slides on Tuesday as concern about possible U.S.-led intervention in Syria dented global sentiment and further losses in currencies spurred a fresh round of selling.
Sell-offs accelerated in late trade, sending Jakarta's Composite Index 3.7 percent lower to 3,967.84, the lowest since June 29, 2012 and extending losses for a fourth session. The index has lost 8.1 percent year-to-date, making it Asia's worst performer.

The Philippine index  dropped 4 percent, the top loser on the day, erasing most its gains this year. The Thai SET index slid 2.7 percent to a nine-month closing low of 1,293.97, losing 7 percent on the year.

Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines each saw a drop of around 20 percent from their highs in May, taking them into the
bear market territory.

A weakness in Thai baht against the dollar suggested further market loss, said Bangkok-based Prapas Tonpibulsak, the chief investment officer at Krungsri Asset Management.   

"Foreign outflows are likely to continue in the coming one-two months... gains in terms of FX may not be that compelling and could put funds under pressure," he said.

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
