Vietnam index dips 0.5 pct on lower dong, rig spat

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended down 0.47 percent at 567.35 points on Thursday, the lowest since June 10, following a central bank's currency
depreciation and China moving a second oil rig in the South China Sea, analysts said.
Vietnam lowered the mid-point rate for interbank trading by  1 percent on Thursday to 21,246 dong per dollar to support exports, the key driver of the economy.
 "The devaluation lowered assets value of investors," said deputy manager Nguyen Tuan with An Binh Securities.
 State-run media in Vietnam also cited China's maritime safety administration as saying Beijing was relocating a second oil rig in the South China Sea, a move that analysts said contributed to cautious sentiment on Thursday's trade.
But analysts expected the lower dong value would have short-term impact on the stock market, where the index has already recovered partially since midday.
 "Cautious investors exercised profit taking immediately, but bargain hunting was also seen as stocks fell," said analyst Tran Minh Hoang of Vietcombank Securities.
The index hit its lowest intraday level since June 9 in early trade before rebounding in the afternoon session, and volume jumped to 124 million shares, the highest since May 27, Reuters data showed.
Property firm Vingroup   fell 2.31 percent and Hanoi-based Vietcombank  lost 1.54 percent.

SE Asia Stocks-Vietnam weak on lower dong; Philippines trims loss before rate decision

Stocks in Vietnam ended down 0.5 percent on Thursday, recovering most of their early losses weighed down by the central bank's small depreciation of the dong, while Philippine benchmark recouped some losses before an expected interest rate decision.
Vietnam's VN Index   dropped 2 percent in early trading on reports that China was moving a second oil rig in the South China Sea, analysts said. 
The State Bank of Vietnam lowered the midpoint rate for trading its currency    on the interbank market by 1 percent on Thursday to support exports, the key driver of the economy.
The Philippine main index    closed down 0.06 percent at 6,699.39, bouncing off an intraday low of 6,657.22.
Philippine central bank kept its benchmark rate at a record low, but surprised markets by raising the rate on a short-term special deposit account facility (SDA) in a bid to contain liquidity growth that can fuel inflation pressures.
The announcement came after the stock market close.
 Big caps performed mixed, with banking shares such as Metropolitan Bank & Trust  ending down and telecommunications share such as Philippine Long Distance Telephone   closing higher.
Stock exchange data showed foreign investors sold shares for a fourth session, offloading a net 1.08 billion peso ($24.6 million). They sold a combined 905 million peso ($20.63 million) in three sessions to Wednesday.
Sentiment in Southeast Asia was broadly positive after the U.S. Federal Reserve's decision delivered no surprises to the market. Malaysia's index  hit a one-month high and Thai SET index    snapped two days of falls.
Asian shares rose on Thursday after the U.S. Federal Reserve gave a positive assessment of the economy and committed to keeping monetary policy accommodative.

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
