Another step forward was to cultivate and search for students with high potential to become professionals in this industry. Ideally, they should have insightful understanding of the capital market and investment in compliance with international standard. We provided opportunities and expected the bright young generation in this globalization era to lead the Thai capital market to compete with regional and global capital market efficiently.

Vietnam index ends down 0.95 pct on widespread selling

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  retreated 0.95 percent at the close on Wednesday as investors offloaded shares on expectation that the market could
not further rise, an analyst said.

Trading was thin in the previous sessions as selling at high prices did not match buying demand at lower levels, said analyst Nguyen The Minh of Viet Capital Securities.     
 "Low liquidity in recent sessions has made investors impatient so they sold shares on Wednesday," Minh added.
Falling stocks outnumbered the gainers, with property firm Vingroup  dropping 3.73 percent and top insurer Baoviet  Holdings   closing 4.03 percent lower.
But solid bargain hunting demand on small- and mid-cap shares emerging near the end of the session indicated the index might not fall sharply, Minh said.
    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares snap rising streak; others weaker

Southeast Asian stocks fell on Wednesday, as investors were cautious ahead of the European Central Bank's monetary policy meeting on Thursday, and Thai shares snapped six sessions of gains amid technical-led selling.
The Thai SET index  ended down 0.3 percent, after a rally of 4.8 percent since May 27, which sent its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) to above 70 in the previous session, indicating shares were overbought. The RSI fell to 68.1 on Wednesday.
Profit-taking hit consumer and construction stocks such as Charoen Pokphand Foods and industrial conglomerate Siam Cement , which had hit a one-month high on Monday after broker CLSA's recommendation reflected some uplift in infrastructure spending.
CLSA's global equity strategist Christopher Wood upgraded Thailand to 'overweight' from 'neutral' in the Asia Pacific ex-Japan relative-return portfolio, according to the CLSA Greed & Fear report dated June 1.
 "It is based on the view that the probability for now is that the military will be successful in restoring a degree of temporary stability in the at least 15-month period that is likely to ensue before there is another poll," the report said.
The Thai stock market saw net foreign buying worth 582 million baht ($17.81 million) on Wednesday, for a third straight session.  
Fund flows to the region were mixed. The Malaysian bourse reported net inflow of 38 million ringgit ($11.77 million) while the Philippine stock exchange reported net outflow of 423 million peso ($9.65 million).
Asian shares stepped back from their recent highs on Wednesday ahead of expected easing from the European Central Bank. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan   fell 0.4 percent.

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
