Vietnam index drops 1 pct, volume low

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  dropped 0.99 percent to 570.37 points on Monday, with investors offloading shares in caution after a circular capping loans' for stock investment went into effect.
Appetite was weak on the first day after banks' loans for investment in shares are capped at 5 percent of a bank's registered capital as of Feb. 1 as per a central bank's directive, which experts said has been hurting inflows into equities despite its long-run benefit to the financial system.
Investors stayed on the sidelines, dragging volume down to 85 million shares, well below the five-day average of 114 million, while declining shares outnumbered risers by more than three to one, Reuters data showed.
Almost all blue chips lost ground, led by food producer Masan Group   that fell 1.79 percent and dairy product maker Vinamilk    with a 0.96-percent fall, and the banking sector also headed south after gains for most of January, Reuters data showed.
 "Risk-averse investors should step aside from the market to protect funds and reduce risks, while risk-lovers might add in stocks with surprising business results," said brokerage Vietcombank Securities in a note to clients.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close.

SE Asia Stocks - Thai index rebounds; tourism stocks weak after mall bombing

The Thai index snapped two days of falls on Monday, led by energy shares, but tourism stocks slipped after small bombs hit a central shopping mall late on Sunday. Indonesia trimmed some losses after January inflation came below expectations.
The Philippines' main index  retreated from Friday's record close of 7,689.91 while Vietnam   fell to a near two-week closing low as sentiment in Asia was dampened by the latest guage of China's factory sector activity.  
Selling in shares of hotel operators such as Minor International  and transporters including national carrier Thai Airways International  weighed on the broader sentiment.
The SET index   ended a tad higher helped by gains in top three energy stocks -- PTT , PTT Exploration and Production   and PTT Global Chemical   .
Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha ordered security to be tightened in Bangkok on Monday after two small bombs rattled a luxury shopping mall and stoked tension in a city under martial  law since a coup in May.
  Indonesia's index   eased 0.3 percent to 5,276.24, bouncing off the day's low of 5,257.21. Fund flows were mixed, with Bank Mandiri  <BMRI.JK>  up 2.3 percent on foreign inflows while Telkom Indonesia   fell 0.9 percent on outflows.

Indonesia's annual inflation in January eased to 6.96 percent from 8.36 percent in December after domestic fuel costs fell on sliding global oil prices, the statistics bureau said on Monday.  
Market sentiment improved after inflation data, said Harry Su, head of research at Bahana Securities in Jakarta.
"Lower inflation, helped by lower commodity prices, is good for the market, and is in line with our view that it should allow the BI (Bank Indonesia) rate to remain at the current 7.75 percent level," he said.
Bargain hunting emerged in regional oil-related shares, with top gainers including Philippine refiner Petron Corp. Singapore's Sembcorp Marine   jumped 2 percent, sending Singapore's index   1 percent higher.     
 Market                   Current     Prev Close     Pct Move
 Singapore             3423.35       3391.20            +0.95
 Bangkok               1582.70       1581.25            +0.09
 Jakarta                  5276.24       5289.40             -0.25

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
