Vietnam index drops 0.6 pct, sentiment down

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index    closed 0.61 percent lower on Tuesday to a fresh low unseen since Feb. 5 as foreigners extending sales dampened domestic investors' appetite.
PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's top listed firm by market value, dropped 1.32 percent to its lowest close since Jan. 9 at 75,000 dong ($3.49), while Petrovietnam Drilling & Well Services   dropped 3.88 percent.
Analysts expected further losses as the market lacked supportive news to reverse an offload trend by both domestic and foreign investors, adding that some bargain hunting may cushion falls around the support level at 550-560 points.
Volume fell to 91.9 million shares on Tuesday, below the five-day average of 107 million shares, while foreign investors sold a net 40.5 billion dong worth of Vietnamese equities.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia snaps losing streak; most others weak

Indonesian stocks eked out small gains on Tuesday amid a rise in the rupiah   and selective buying in large-caps while other Southeast Asian stock
markets were flat-to-weaker after a measure of Chinese factory activity came weaker than expected.
Jakarta's composite index   ended the day 0.2 percent higher after two straight days of modest falls. Banking shares were among those actively traded, led by Bank Rakyat Indonesia and Bank Negara Indonesia .
The rupiah rose to its highest in more than two weeks amid uncertainty over the timing of U.S. interest rate hikes and after Indonesia's finance minister said he would work with the central bank to strengthen the currency.
Broker Bahana Securities cut its rating on the market to neutral, with a end-year target of 5,550, and continued to recommend clients to adopt a more defensive strategy in consumer staples and telecoms.
"While sentiment on the IDR has somewhat improved, the central bank's decision on its interest rate policy in the lead up to the upcoming Fed rate hike will remain a crucial determinant for both the equity and currency markets," Bahana Securities' head of research Harry Su said.
 Singapore stocks   ended little changed for a second straight day, Thai stocks   fell for a third day and Vietnam   was down 0.6 percent, its second straight loss.

Malaysia   rose 1 percent, its first in three days.
The Philippines   was down 0.2 percent on the day. It is still up 8.3 percent on the year and is Southeast Asia's best performer, thanks to its economic outperformance.
 The Asian Development Bank (ADB) maintained its 2015 GDP growth forecast for the Philippines at 6.4 percent while cutting GDP growth forecasts for the year of most other countries in Southeast Asia.

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.

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
