Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  edged up 0.32 percent to close at 506.92 points on Thursday, led by gains in most blue chips while analysts expected the index could face a downward trend until the end of the month due in part to weak inflows.

 Food producer Ma San Group  led the gains, with shares climbing 1.75 percent, followed by the country's largest listed firm PetroVietNam Gas  which rose 0.78 percent.
But the index could fall within the next two weeks as technical indicators showed it would not be able to surpass the 513-point resistance level, said deputy manager Nguyen Tuan at An Binh Securities.

The index bounced back each of the three times it surpassed 513 points last month, while liquidity remained modest, suggesting money inflow was not strong enough to boost the index further, Tuan added.

A large amount of shares of dairy product maker Vinamilk  was traded on Thursday as two foreign funds sold part of the targeted 13.4 million VNM in their portfolio restructuring, Tuan said.  
Trading in the share helped lift the market value to 2.44 trillion dong ($115.7 million), a surge of 73 percent, the exchange data show.

Major Southeast Asian stocks fell on Thursday, led by Philippine and Indonesian shares on worries the U.S. monetary stimulus tapering would come sooner than previously thought, while Thai stocks retreated amid political uncertainty.
 The Philippine main index    finished down 2.14 percent, its biggest one-day loss in more than two months, with selling most active in shares of Metropolitan Bank & Trust , which fell 2 percent to their lowest since October 2012.
The sell-off erased all the gains of the benchmark of 30 large-cap stocks so far this year, turning them into a year-to-date loss of almost 1 percent.
The Philippine central bank announced after market close that it left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at a record low of 3.5 percent, in line with expectations.
 Indonesia  slid 1.4 percent with banking shares  among the losers after the central bank kept its benchmark reference rate  unchanged at 7.50 percent as expected.  

Bank Indonesia said it would strengthen its monetary policy response due to the Fed's planned scale back of monetary stimulus.    
Foreign investors were net sellers of shares in the Philippines and Indonesia worth 675.64 million peso ($15.31 million) and 390.5 billion rupiah ($32.57 million) respectively,

In Bangkok, the benchmark SET index   fell nearly 1 percent to the lowest in almost three weeks amid foreign selling and losses in large caps such as Advanced Info Service and PTT.
The Thai stock market suffered outflows for a fifteenth straight session on Thursday as the country has been in a state of political turmoil.  

Foreign selling of Thai shares was worth a combined $1.7 billion since Nov. 20, stock exchange data showed.
The Singapore index  eased 0.06 percent, hovering around its lowest in more than three months, while the Malaysian index  was down 0.5 percent, further off a record close of 1,843.85 hit on Tuesday, as broader Asia pulled lower.

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
