Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed nearly unchanged on Thursday as investors cut loss and took profit from stocks, but the volume hit the lowest in two months.  
A total of 57.72 million shares changed hands on Thursday, the lowest since Nov. 1, 2013, Reuters data showed. The low volume indicated investors' lack of interest in the stock market at the moment, analysts said.

Investors took profit from shares that gained strongly on the previous day, including Refrigeration Electrical Engineering Group  and Sai Gon Securities Incorp , said deputy manager Nguyen Tuan at An Binh Securities.

SSI rose 3.4 percent and REE climbed 2.1 percent on Tuesday, and they closed flat on Thursday after rising earlier in the morning session, Reuters data showed.
 Investors also cut losses from other stocks, including those of food producer Ma San Group    and property firm HAGL , after they fell over the past week, Tuan said.
Money inflow would not rise in the short term, keeping the index lingering between 500-513 points in coming weeks, analysts said.
 The VN Index this year could rise 15 percent from 2013, based on the economy's stability and good development outlook, Chairman Luu Trung Thai of the Military Bank Securities Co was quoted by the Securities Investment magazine as saying.  

In 2013 Vietnam's market was the best performer in Southeast Asia, with a gain of nearly 22

Thai stocks suffered their biggest loss since September 2011 on Thursday as escalating domestic protests against Feb. 2 election triggered heavy sell-offs in large caps while Philippine stocks rallied on their first trading day of 2014 due to fund inflows.

 Anti-government protesters have planned a mass rally to shut down Bangkok from Jan. 13, calling for national reform to precede the election while security agencies were considering declaring a state of emergency to deal with the protest.     Thai baht   lost for a 10th straight day against the dollar.
