Vietnam index drops, tracking Asian markets after China fall

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 0.92 percent on Thursday, snapping a five-day
winning streak in a technical correction, in line with regional markets after Chinese stocks slid.  MTKS/GLOB  
Dairy products maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM , the country's top firm by market value, led the decliners with a 1.53 percent fall, followed by PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  that dropped 2.34 percent on lower global oil prices.  
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer last year, has gained a combined 3.8 percent over the past five sessions,
helped partly by foreign buying of Vietnamese shares worth a net 369.3 billion dong ($16.55 million) since Feb. 18.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

          VN Index  562.82

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly weak as China stocks tumble

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Thursday as a plunge in Chinese stocks and weak global oil market spurred late selling, but the Thai benchmark eked out modest gains, helped by selective buying in dividend-yielding stocks.
The key SET index  .SETI  inched up 0.11 percent. It fell in early trading after data showed the country's exports contracted more than expected in January in the face of sluggish global demand and China's slowdown.  

Among winners, Bangkok Bank  BBL.BK  posted its eighth straight session of gains with a 1.5 percent jump, partly
reflecting an attractive dividend yield.  
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  ended flat after the central bank said it had room to cut its benchmark policy rate
Stocks in Singapore  .STI , Malaysia  .KLSE  and Vietnam  .VNI  all finished the day lower in line with Asia, with a fall in global oil prices keeping investors in the region edgy.   
Fund flows in the region were mixed amid expectations of a possible delay in interest rate hikes in the United States due to weak U.S. economic data.
Malaysia and Thailand saw net foreign buying worth 120 million ringgit ($28.46 million) and 115 million baht ($3.22
million), respectively, while Indonesia witnessed a net foreign selling of 23.8 billion rupiah ($1.78 million).
The Philippine stock market  .PSI  was closed for a public holiday, reopening on Friday.

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.
