Vietnam index ends at 2-wk low on margin selling

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   extended falls to the third session, dropping 1.37 percent to close on Tuesday at 605.79 points, the lowest since Sept. 30, on margin selling.
About 60 percent of shares lost ground, led by PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's biggest firm by market capitalisation, with a 1.8 percent decline, followed by dairy product maker Vinamilk    that fell 0.92 percent.
"Margin trading is probably too high now," said a trader with Ho Chi Minh City Securities, referring to the funds that investors borrowed from brokerages to buy shares.
The index was almost flat by midday before strong selling emerged, boosting volume to 115.3 million shares by the end of the trading day, still well below the five-day average of 141 million, Reuters data showed.
While the index fall was beyond market expectations, it could be an opportunity for short-term speculative buying, analyst Hoang Huy of ACB Securities said.
"But the market is unlikely to fall below 600 points as many investors have been waiting for bargain hunting around this level," Huy said.
Analysts have expected the real estate and brokerage sectors to lead the increase in the market later this year on expectations of good earnings and speculative purchases.

SE Asia Stocks -Most fall; Singapore at over 6-mnth low after Q3 GDP

Singapore's key index hit a more than six-month low on Tuesday after weak economic data, while most other Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower as concerns about the health of the world economy unnerved investors in the region.  
The Straits Times Index    fell 0.2 percent to 3,194.40, its lowest close since April 7. Shares of large cap companies were among those actively traded, including CapitaLand  and United Overseas Bank   .
The index erased its earlier gains and extended losses for a third session after data showed Singapore's gross domestic product in the third quarter rose a weaker-than-expected 1.2 percent from the previous quarter.
Stocks in the Philippines and Malaysia fell for a third session, with the Philippine composite index   ending at its lowest level since Aug. 8 and the Kuala Lumpur composite index   at a more than eight-month closing low.
The Philippines recorded net foreign selling worth 1.15 billion peso ($25.61 million), with Malaysia's net foreign selling at 10.56 million ringgit ($3.23 million) and Indonesia's at 490 billion rupiah ($40.15 million), stock exchange

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
