The Finance Index fell 0.85% to 15295.62 points, the Properties Index dropped 1.14% to 1188.89 points and the Plantation Index down 1.68% to 7258.81 points. The market traded within a range of 27.66 points between an intra-day high of 1722.30 and a low of 1694.64 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include TMS, VSOLAR, IDMENSN, FRONTKN, IDMENSN-WA, APFT, RGB, FBMKLCI-HL, DIGI and XDL. Trading volume increased to 1652.65 mil shares worth RM2021.22 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 1223.31 mil shares worth RM1394.75 mil.

Leading Movers were KLCC (+14 sen to RM7.14), WPRTS (+5 sen to RM4.24), PETDAG (+8 sen to RM21.44) and PPB (+2 sen to RM15.20).

Market breadth was negative with 187 gainers as compared to 686 losers.

The KLCI extended its midday losses by ending lower at 1694.64 points as lack of fresh catalysts and the weakening ringgit dampened the local sentiment. The performance of our local bourse was bogged down by selling in heavy weight counters such as Axiata, Digi and IOI Corp.

Vietnam stock index falls 1 pct; Military Bank outperforms

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed almost 1 percent lower on Thursday, with most shares losing ground after a swift rebound in the previous session, but Military Commercial Bank  MBB.HM  advanced in solid volume.
Losers outnumbered winners by nearly two to one, with Vietcombank  VCB.HM , the nation's biggest firm by market value, down 2.17 percent and BIDV  BID.HM , the country's top partly private lender by assets, lower 2.9 percent.
Military Bank bucked the trend and ended up 0.63 percent in the highest volume traded in nearly five weeks, after the firm said on Wednesday it would pay shareholders three shares for every 100 owned.
Analysts said the share dividend payment by the bank would open room for more purchases by foreign investors whose ownership has always been at the 10 percent limit allowed for trading.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Malaysia's index posts worst drop since December

Malaysian shares posted their worst drop in nearly eight months on Thursday due to a fall in the ringgit and foreign-led selling, while most other markets in Southeast Asia fell as investors weighed in the risk of a possible U.S. interest rate hike.
The Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  dropped 1.8 percent, the biggest single-day loss since December 2014. The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors unloaded a net 261 million ringgit ($67 million) on the day.
The ringgit weakened past 3.9000 per dollar on Thursday for the first time since the Asian financial crisis 17 years ago as concern grew over a corruption scandal embroiling the prime minister and weakness in commodity prices.   
Indexes in Thailand  .SETI  and Indonesia  .JKSE  reversed their previous day's gains, while the Philippines  .PSI  snapped
a six-day winning streak, reflecting the heightened expectations of a possible interest rate hike in the United States.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed almost 1 percent lower, with most shares losing ground after a swift rebound in the previous session.
Singapore  .FTSTI  finished up 0.17 percent in a range-bound session. The city-state's stock market will be closed from Friday through Monday.     


 Market                   Current       Prev Close     Pct Move
 Singapore              3196.66          3191.39           +0.17

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
