 HANOI, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  edged up 0.07 percent to close at 511.6 points on  Tuesday, with gains in a few blue chips lifting the market despite selling in most stocks.

Shares of PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's largest listed firm, rose 0.78 percent, dairy product maker Vinamilk  increased 0.7 percent and real estate firm Vingroup   was up 0.7 percent.

But most shares lost ground as the db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam exchange-traded fund   sold shares in its portfolio during the fourth-quarter restructuring, analyst Pham Van Khoa at Bao Viet Securities said.

 Investors were cautious on the ETF's selling, so they sold stocks which have strong gains recently, Khoa added.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

Southeast Asian markets were range-bound on Tuesday with Malaysia at an all-time high while the Philippines ended at a three-month low as investors awaited cues from a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting next week over its stimulus tapering timeline.

 Malaysia's main index   hit a record high for a second day, rising to 1,846.92 before closing at 1,843.85 with a 0.1 percent rise. The index was led by a 1.5 percent gain in Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd   despite foreign outflows of $77.8 million.  

 Jakarta's Composite Index   ended 1.5 percent firmer at a one-week closing high, helped by financials, while Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  <.VNI>  edged up 0.1 percent to end at a one-week closing high.      

 Investors were cautious about buying ahead of a U.S. Fed meeting on Dec. 17-18.

The Fed is expected to begin tapering its asset purchases by March, a Reuters poll showed on Monday, but some economists say it might start as early as this month.  
Other regional stock markets fell, with the Philippine index   dropping 2 percent to its lowest close since Aug. 28 on sluggish economic growth outlook in the fourth quarter, due to a major typhoon in November.

Singapore stocks  fell over 1 percent to a three-month closing low. The Thai stock market, which saw an outflow of more than $880 million in eight straight sessions through Monday, was closed for a holiday.

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
