Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   fell 1.23 percent to close at 505.31 points on Wednesday due to fading hopes of a higher foreign ownership while a major trade deal has not been concluded, an analyst said.

 No government decision yet on raising the foreign holding ratio in listed firms, and countries around the Pacific Rim failing to end the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact this year have prompted investors to sell stocks, said analyst Nguyen Hoai Nam at Maybank Kim Eng Securities.

Ministers in Trans-Pacific trade talks said on Tuesday they had made 'substantial progress' during a meeting in Singapore but have not reached a final agreement.
Falling shares outnumbered the gainers on Wednesday, and there was no strong gain by large-cap shares to pull the index back up as it happened in the past week, Nam said.
 A total of 201 shares lost ground out of 289 stocks listed on the exchange, Reuters data showed.

 Shares of PetroVietNam Gas , the country's largest listed firm, led the fall, losing 1.54 percent, followed by Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   that dropped 1.8 percent.

 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

Southeast Asian stocks ended mostly weaker on Wednesday as players booked profits amid uncertainty about U.S. stimulus, pulling Malaysia off a record close set in the previous session while Thai stocks posted modest gains on commodities stocks.

 Malaysia's composite index  eased 0.06 percent, coming off Tuesday's record close of 1,843.85. The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors sold a net 162.46 million ringgit ($50.64 million) worth of stocks.

The Thai SET index  edged up 0.1 percent in choppy  trade, with shares of coal miner Banpu   and PTT Exploration and Production   among the top gainers, each climbing more than 3 percent.
The looming political impact on the domestic economy weighed on consumer and tourism-related stocks, sending food firm Charoen Pokphand Foods   and carrier Thai Airways International   each down more than 2 percent.

The Bank of Thailand's monetary policy committee (MPC) felt that political tensions could keep hurting sentiment about the country when it surprisingly cut the policy interest rate at its Nov. 27 meeting.

Foreign investors offloaded a net 3.52 billion baht ($109.54 million) of Thai shares on Wednesday, adding to their net $1.49 billion selling over the past 13 straight sessions.

Supporters of Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said they could take to the streets to protect the government from protesters who have forced her to call a snap election, setting the scene for a possible confrontation.

Stocks in Singapore  extended losses for a seventh session, down 0.7 percent at their lowest close since Sept. 6 while most Asian share markets lurched lower as investors booked profits on a range of once-crowded positions, largely to the benefit of bonds and the detriment of the U.S. dollar.

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
