Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended up 0.64 percent on Monday, led by domestic buying into banks and amid analysts' expectation of further gains in the coming sessions.
Hanoi-based VietinBank  outperformed the market to jump 6.12 percent, followed by Vietcombank , Vietnam's biggest bank by market value, with a 3.9-percent rise, while lender BIDV   increased 3.77 percent.
The remaining three other banks also gained on Monday, while the broader market moved mixed in solid volume of 154.92 million shares, compared to the five-day average of 163.69 million.

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia hits 13-mth closing low on weak data

 Indonesia's key stock index hit a 13-month closing low on Monday on investor concerns over weak demand after imports and motorcycle sales fell in May, while worries about failed Greek debt talks dented regional sentiment.
The Jakarta composite index   dropped 2 percent to 4,837.79, the lowest close since May 2014. Shares of Bank Mandiri  were down 4.3 percent and Bank Negara Indonesia  shed 4 percent due to selling led by foreign investors.
The fall took the index's year-to-date loss to 7.5 percent in terms of local currency, Asia's worst performer.
Macroeconomic data showed that the country's wide current  account was most likely narrowing, but Monday also produced evidence that consumer demand was much weaker than expected ahead of the biggest shopping season.
Before the data was released, the market had been gripped by the likely impact of a depreciation in the rupiah  partly due to weaker corporate earnings, brokers said.
"The next focus will be second quarter earnings at the end of July and the Bank Indonesia's rate policy. I don't expect BI to cut interest rates this month. BI may increase it after Idul Fitri," said John Teja, director of Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.
Indonesia's Idul Fitri holidays, or the celebration that comes at the end of the Muslim month of fasting, are around mid-July.
Singapore's Straits Times Index   ended down 0.9 percent at a near one-week closing low. Data showed the city-state's employment shrank for the first time in nearly six years in the January-March quarter.
Bangkok's SET index   closed down 0.4 percent, recouping some losses in early trade.
The Stock Exchange of Thailand expected the Thai stock market's investment sentiment to improve in the second-half, helped by a recovery in the domestic economy on government spending on major projects and a pick-up in exports.
 "More government investment in the second-half should make the stock market more attractive," Chairman Sathit Limpongpan told reporters.

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
