The Finance Index fell 0.24% to 16471.08 points, the Properties Index up 0.19% to 1288.98 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.57% to 8625.14 points. The market traded within a range of 9.49 points between an intra-day high of 1790.03 and a low of 1780.54 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include KNM, AT, MAS, XOX, INSTACO-WB, SOLUTN, SUMATEC, SONA-WA, KNM-WA and INSAS. Trading volume decreased to 1541.77 mil shares worth RM1789.53 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 2245.63 mil shares worth RM2218.20 mil.

Leading Movers were UMW (+52 sen to RM12.76), BAT (+30 sen to RM63.00), GENTING (+18 sen to RM10.40), HLFG (+12 sen to RM15.00) and MISC (+9 sen to RM5.14).

Market breadth was positive with 503 gainers as compared to 282 losers.

The local bourse erased yesterday’s losses, by inching up 1.71 points to close the day at 1,784.2. The optimistic results mirrored the gains in Wall Street’s after the Federal Reserve nominee Janet Yellen hinted of a continued stimulus as she reckons the economy and labour market have yet to reach the desired outcome. We deem the statement has ease investors’ anxiety across the regions as most peers closed the day with positive results.

Thai bourse donates funds for typhoon victims in the Philippines
BANGKOK, November 14, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has granted THB 1 million (approx. USD 32,000) through the Thai government to aid the Philippines recover from the ravages of Typhoon Haiyan.

SET Chairman Sathit Limpongpun said that the devastating typhoon caused massive damage to assets and lives in the Philippines, and a continuous flow of international relief efforts was helping revive the country. SET, as one of Thailand’s economic drivers, realized the widespread and long-lasting extent of the catastrophe and was honored to help our friendly neighboring country.

SET President Charamporn Jotikasthira said that Thailand and the Philippines have had long and deep bonds of friendship, similar to the relationship between SET and The Philippines Stock Exchange. Our respective bourses have cooperated closely with other ASEAN exchanges to boost the attractiveness of ASEAN as an investment destination. This donation from SET would expand the ties between our countries and helped relieve the intense suffering of those hit by this typhoon.      

SET Group: “Matching Your Right Financial Opportunities”


Vietnam's benchmark VN Index rose 0.35 percent to close at 497.85 points on Thursday, lifted by gains in some blue chips.
Shares of steel producer Hoa Phat surged 5.56 percent to close at 39,900 dong ($1.89). PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm, finished up 0.79 percent having climbed 1.6 percent in earlier trade after it reported a 40 percent rise in net profit over the
January-September period from a year earlier.

These gains were offset by real estate firm HAGL's loss of 2.68 percent. HAGL faced a second accusation from activist group Global Witness on Thursday of failing to address environmental and human rights abuses at its plantations in Cambodia and Laos.
Analysts expected the index would linger at between 495 to 505 points until next week as they had yet to see any major indicators of a bigger movement in the index.

Trading volume was at 65 million shares, lower than the five-day average of 83.5 million.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

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
