Market breadth was negative with 131 gainers as compared to 753 losers.

The KLCI extended its third day losses to close at 1,772.62 points, spawned by the downgrade of Malaysia’s outlook to “negative” from “stable” by Fitch Ratings and amid concern that global investors will repatriate funds after the $2.9 billion of bond matures. Regionally, markets was on a mix note amid investors stay cautious ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting and the early withdrawal of the U.S central bank rolling back its bond purchases at the end of September.

Vietnam's VN index closed up 0.7 percent on Wednesday in thin trade, against declines in Southeast Asian markets and led by buying in blue chips as most investors opted out in hope of an uptrend.

Energy firm PetroVietnam Gas climbed 3.1 percent, dairy maker Vinamilk rose 2.1 percent, and property firm Vingroup  was up 1.6 percent.

Pharmaceuticals firm DHG Pharma increased 1.9 percent, followed by Eximbank and Sai Gon Securities, up 0.7 and 0.6 percent respectively.
The index would continue to fluctuate in the absence of any positive macro economics news, a trader said. Many securities
firms advised investors to hold on to their shares and wait for an increase in liquidity.

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Wednesday, with Malaysian benchmark sliding to a three-week closing low after Fitch Ratings downgraded the country's credit outlook, while Thai key index ended at a three-week low amid political concerns.

Malaysia's main index  was down 1.3 percent at 1,772.62 on Wednesday, ending the month 0.05 percent lower, as credit fears spurred selling in market large caps such as CIMB Group Holdings, the most actively traded.

Bangkok's SET index  closed down 0.9 percent on the day, extending its loss for a third session, in relatively moderate volume. It was down 2 percent in July, the third straight month of loss.

Sentiment in the region was broadly weak in line with global markets ahead of the outcome of the U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting and the release of U.S. GDP data.  
Indonesian shares  staged a late rebound to inch up 0.04 percent on the day, trimming their loss on the month to 4.3 percent, the region's worst performer.

Stocks in Singapore, the Philippines  and Vietnam reversed their steep losses in June to gain more than 2 percent in July.

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
