The Finance Index increased 0.23% to 17211.13 points, the Properties Index up 0.17% to 1430.54 points and the Plantation Index down 0.40% to 9194.23 points. The market traded within a range of 3.69 points between an intra-day high of 1880.29 and a low of 1876.60 during the session.

Market breadth was negative with 345 gainers as compared to 442 losers.

Vietnam index closes flat, falls expected ahead

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended almost flat on Tuesday at 578.07 points, as selling in the afternoon session erased gains in early trade.
Stocks moved mixed, with securities firms gaining on expectations of good results in the second quarter, analysts said, while a 0.89-percent fall in Vietnam's biggest listed firm by capitalisation PetroVietNam Gas   kept the index from ticking up.

"Technical indicators showed signs that the index may fall in coming sessions after the benchmark failed to surpass its resistance level of 580 points," said analyst Nguyen Hoang Phuong of Ho Chi Minh City Securities.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close.

SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia turns higher on positive economic data

Stocks in Indonesia eked out slim gains on Tuesday as a set of positive economic data lifted select shares, including banks, while the Philippine index edged lower amid domestic-led selling in rallying stocks such as BDO Unibank .
Indonesia's key index   rose 0.13 percent to a near two-week high after data showed a small trade surplus in May and manufacturing activity rose to a record high for the second month in June, which reflected domestic demand for new orders.

The market saw a late rebound in shares of Bank Mandiri   and Bank Rakyat   while shares of retailer Matahari Putra Prima   erased early gains to end
The market was broadly weak in early trade as caution remained over the outlook on the trade balance.
"I am quite worried about trade deficit which could go up ahead as a result of this strong PMI. If trade deficit were to widen, sentiment in the market would not be positive in my view," said Harry Su, head of research at Bahana Securities.
Losses in the Philippines   were led by shares of BDO Unibank and Philippine Long Distance Telephone   as selling by domestic investors overshadowed strong foreign inflows into the two stocks, stock exchange data showed.
Foreign investors were net buyers of Philippine shares worth a net 1.2 billion peso ($27.52 million), with about 70 percent of total being net buying in BDO and PLDT, data showed.
Elsewhere, Singapore's key share index   hit a near two-month low as weak private home prices dented sentiment in property shares including Hongkong Land Holdings Ltd  and CapitaLand .
The Thai stock market was closed on Tuesday.

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
