Vietnam index almost flat, eyes on margin rule

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  edged up 0.09 percent on Monday as equities moved mixed in low volume amid high margin trading ratio while investors waited for regulations on the limit of stock loans.
The number of rising shares was almost equal to those that lost ground, while volume dropped to 114.41 million stocks, the lowest since Nov. 6, Reuters data showed.
 "Large funds are awaiting news relating to a central bank draft that would either enlarge or cut margin trading limit," said analyst Do Quang Hop at Saigon-Hanoi Securities.
Hanoi-based lender BIDV  led the gainers to rise 1.54 percent, while Vietcombank   was among the top decliners with a 0.73-percent fall.

SE Asia Stocks - Thai index extends losing streak after weak Q3 GDP

Thai shares fell for a second consecutive session on Monday after data showed weaker-than-expected GDP growth for the third quarter, accompanied by a cut in the 2014 outlook, with profit-taking hitting large-caps after the end of the reporting season.
The Thai SET index   ended down 0.4 percent after a moderate loss on Friday. Siam Commercial Bank    slipped 1.6 percent, the second-biggest loser on the large-cap SET 50 index .
Thailand cut its outlook for the fourth time this year after its economy grew much less than expected in the July-September quarter, hit by a contraction in exports and tourism.
Brokers expected market weakness in the near term, citing high valuations. Phillip Securities said the SET's forward earnings multiple had risen above 16, while historical data suggested an earnings multiple of 15 pointing to a correction.
Markets across the region capitulated as share prices had been rising for some time, said Viwat Techapoonphol, strategist at Tisco Securities. "Domestically, we expect some buying support from long-term equity funds," Techapoonphol said.
Long-term equity funds (LTF), as well as retirement mutual funds (RMF), are more popular towards the end of the year due to a favourable tax treatment of the funds.
Among the weak performers, Singapore   eased 0.8 percent after Friday's rise to a near two-month high and Malaysia   extended loss for a fifth session to near four-week closing low.
Stocks in Indonesia , the Philippines  and Vietnam   were little changed.  
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  was down 0.7 percent.

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
