ASEAN STOCK WATCH Asean Affairs  9 August  2013 

Vietnam's VN Index  rebounded from Thursday's fall to end up 0.48 percent at 500.62 points on Friday, supported by buying demand for several blue chips even as volume was low.

Shares in confectionary firm Kinh Do Corp gained 1.92 percent to end at 53,000 dong ($2.5), while PetroVietnam Gas , Vietnam's biggest listed firm by market value, closed up 1.48 percent at 68,500 dong.

"Volume, however, has been falling and investors are still waiting for better news that could help boost liquidity," said a Vietnamese trader in Hanoi.

Volume edged down to 27.86 million shares on Friday, down by a nearly a third from an average volume of 42 million shares per day in July, Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange data show.

Thai stocks retreated 1 percent on Friday, trimming some of its gains on the week, as cautions about political development at home spurred late selling ahead of a three-day weekend while Vietnam extended gains for a second week led by blue chips.
The Thai benchmark SET index  closed at 1,432.25, ending four sessions of gains, with local brokers attributing the market fall to a "follow-through selling" after the index broke below a key technical support level of 1,440.
It was still up 0.8 percent on the week, the second-best performer after Vietnam's VN index , which rose 1.2 percent on the week.  

The Thai exchange posted $289 million worth of net foreign selling over six sessions to Thursday amid domestic political tensions.

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.

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
