Vietnam index dips 1.1 pct on margin and global worries

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed down 1.06 percent on Friday as investors offloaded shares amid worries on high margin trading and a slowdown in global growth, analysts said.
PetroVietNam Gas , the country's biggest firm by market value, led the losses with a 2.59 percent decline, after closing at a three-week high in the previous session.
GAS gains kept the index positive almost all day before the stock fell near the session end, while the number of losing equities dominated the market throughout the whole session, Reuters data showed.
"Margin trading seems to have reached its permissible limit so there is no additional funding for the market," said analyst Le Dac An of Tan Viet Securities.
Concerns over the global economic outlook also discouraged investors from holding equities, analysts said.
Asian shares shuddered and Brent crude oil prices tumbled to their lowest since 2010 on Friday after weak German export data raised fears that Europe's economic woes could drag down the global economy.  

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

                         VN Index       617.72

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
