Vietnam index posts biggest jump in nearly 4 years

 * Three quarters of shares climb
    * Banking and energy shares lead the rise
    * Market uncertain, depending on oil prices and congress
HANOI, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Vietnam's VN Index  .VNI  rose 3.85 percent on Monday, the strongest single-day jump since
March 2012, helped by a rise in oil prices earlier in the day and positive sentiment about the ongoing Communist Party
congress, analysts said.
Three quarters of the shares on the benchmark index climbed, led by banks with five of the country's six listed lenders
rising. Vietcombank  VCB.HM  advanced 5.56 percent and VietinBank  CTG.HM  soared 6.83 percent.
Vietnam's progressive prime minister was among preliminary nominations for the Communist Party's central committee on
Sunday, an official said, maintaining the possibility of him contesting the party leadership to be decided this week.*:nL3N15807Y
"The fact that congress is taking place smoothly boosted the positive sentiment of the market," said Ha Le, analyst at
Vietcombank Securities.
Energy stocks soared after crude oil futures extended gains on Monday on short-covering and fuel demand triggered by
freezing weather in parts of the northern hemisphere.

PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  jumped 6.88 percent.  
Shares in real-estate company Hoang Anh Gia Lai JSC  HAG.HM  also rose 6.33 percent, rebounding from Friday's record low of
7,900 dong, after the central bank rejected market rumour on investigation into HAGL.  
As many as 164.3 million shares changed hands, well above their 30-day average of 122.86 million.
The market is uncertain in the coming sessions, with movements heavily depending on global oil prices and developments at the ongoing congress, analysts expected.
The congress, which is conducted behind closed doors, will decide who will be Vietnam's key leaders for the next five years.  
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer last year, has lost a combined 6.3 percent so far this year, compared with a 6.1 percent gain a year earlier.

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly up; Vietnam posts strongest gain in about 4 years

Most Southeast Asian shares rose on Monday as a cold spell in parts of the northern hemisphere pushed oil prices higher, with Vietnam posting its strongest one-day jump in about four years.  
The bounce in oil prices lured investors back into the battered regional markets.
Vietnam's VN Index  .VNI  closed 3.9 percent higher, the biggest single-day jump since March 2012, helped by a rise in oil prices earlier in the day and positive sentiment about the ongoing Communist Party congress, analysts said.    
Energy stocks soared after crude oil futures extended gains on Monday on short-covering and fuel demand triggered by
freezing weather in parts of the northern hemisphere.

PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  jumped 6.9 percent.  
The major factor that helped the market was a surge in oil prices, while expected stimulus from China, Europe, and Japan
also helped boost sentiment, said Teerada Charnyingyong, an analyst at Phillip Capital in Bangkok.  
The Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan will hold policy meetings this week, with the Fed meeting being scheduled for
Jan. 26-27 and BOJ gathering on Jan. 28-29.
Investors will look for hints on when the Fed intends to make a second interest rate hike, while there is speculation
that the BOJ might opt for additional easing measures.
Philippines  .PSI  jumped 3.6 percent, while the Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  closed up 1.1 percent,  
The Thai share index  .SETI , which earlier gained as much as 1.2 percent to its highest since Jan. 4, retreated and ended
nearly flat as falls in telecommunications and banking shares were offset by gains in energy stocks.

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
