Vietnam index closes down 0.4 pct on profit taking

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   edged down 0.4 percent to close at 541.73 points on Thursday as investors took profit from stocks after a streak of four gains, analysts said.
Property firm Vingroup   led the losses, with shares dipping 1.49 percent, followed by Hanoi-based lender BIDV    that fell 2.01 percent.
 "Investors are still cautious about the situation in the East Sea (South China Sea) so they secured profits near the index's resistance level of 550 points," said analyst Hoang Huy of ACB Securities.
Selling slightly pushed up liquidity on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, analysts said. Volume reached 130 million shares on Thursday, above the five-day average level of 106 million, Reuters data showed.
Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung recently said his government was considering various "defence options" against China, including legal action, following the deployment of a Chinese oil rig to waters in the South China Sea that Hanoi also claims.  
The index had gained a combined 3.8 percent over the last four sessions ending on Wednesday.

SE Asia Stocks -Mostly up; Thailand sees outflow for 3rd day as army takes over govt

Most Southeast Asian markets ended firmer on Thursday, while the Thai stock market saw foreign outflows for a third straight session as the country's army chief seized control of the government two days after he declared martial law.  
Outflows stood at 1.9 billion baht ($58.52 million) on Thursday, extending the net foreign selling to $409.6 million after the army declared martial law on Tuesday.  
After the market closed, Thailand's army seized control of the government, saying it had to restore order and push through reforms and a senior army official told Reuters the military would send troops and vehicles to escort protesters away from rally sites.
 "It's quite a surprise. It could deal another blow to the Thai stock market tomorrow and probably more foreign selloffs," said Charnyingyong, strategist at broker Phillip Securities.  
Before the announcement, Thailand's SET index   ended 0.2 percent up, after touching its highest level since May 6 during early trade.  
Other Southeast Asian markets mostly trader firmer after a private survey showed China's factory sector turned in its best performance in five months in May, and a reassurance by the U.S. Federal Reserve to keep easy policy for the foreseeable future.

The Jakarta Composite Index   ended 1.2 percent higher, while the Philippines   gained 1 percent and Singapore   edged up 0.1 percent.  
Malaysia   bucked the trend, losing 0.1 percent, while Vietnam  ended 0.4 percent weaker.

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
