Vietnam index gains 2.8 pct on bargain hunting, global cues 
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  rose 2.8 percent on Monday as investors picked up battered blue chips and amid positive signs from global equity and energy markets. 
Asian shares took their cues from Wall Street and kicked off a holiday-shortened week on a strong footing as oil prices recovered, while the euro touched a fresh two-year low against the greenback on divergent monetary policy expectations. 
Vietnamese shares bounced back after net selling review sessions by two exchange-traded funds and following margin calls that had sent the index to its lowest in seven months on Dec. 17. 
 PetroVietNam Gas, the country's biggest firm by market value, led gains with a 5.9 percent rise, followed by Hanoi-based Vietcombank  <VCB.HM> , the nation's top lender by capitalisation, with a 5.3 percent increase. 
"This positive trend may last for a few sessions, but a strong rally like today is unlikely due to short-term profit  taking in stocks that gained strongly," said analyst Do Duy Hop of Saigon-Hanoi Securities.

SE Asia Stocks -Most higher; Malaysia posts best gain since May 2013 
Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on Monday as energy shares staged a strong rebound in line with a rise in crude oil prices, with the Malaysian index posting its best gain in more than 19 months and the Thai benchmark closing near a two-week high. 
Oil rose above $62 a barrel, mirroring gains in equities, as investors became confident there would be no further substantial price loss in the run-up to the new year.  
Kuala Lumpur's composite index, which measures moves of 30 large-cap stocks, rose 1.6 percent, its best daily gain since May 2013. Sapurakencana Petroleum  was the top percentage gainer with a rise of 6.7 percent. 
Bangkok's SET index   finished up 1.5 percent at 1,536.83, the highest closing level since Dec. 9. PTT and PTT exploration and Production   rallied more than 4 percent each. 
"The market performed better than expected today because of inflows from 'domestic trigger funds' and a rally in large-cap energy shares" said Chakkrit Charoenmetachai, a senior analyst with AEC Securities. 
Traders said the SET index could be capped at a key resistance of 1,555 towards the end of the year due to a lack of foreign investor participation in the holiday season. 
Singapore's Straits Times Index   climbed 1.6 percent, its best single-day rise since September 2013. The Philippine index   ended slightly higher and Vietnam  jumped 2.8 percent. 
Indonesia   bucked the trend. The index fell 0.4 percent, erasing earlier gains, led by large caps Astra International   and Bank Central Asia .

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
