Thai exchange ready for digital era with expansion of online Smart-Listing service

BANGKOK, October 27, 2014 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand is expanding the "Smart Listing" service to cover the subscription of new ordinary shares and warrants from October 27, 2014 in an effort to streamline the listing process to offer more investment opportunities to investors, with a plan to make the system completely available for all products by 2015.
Supakit Jirapraditkul, SET executive vice president and head of market supervision division, said that SET has improved the "Smart Listing" service, an
online channel that enables listed companies to apply for the listing of their shares more conveniently, to cover the subscription of new ordinary shares and warrants, starting from October 27.  The system has initially been made available only for derivatives warrants (DW). The Thai bourse has also planned to develop the system further to accommodate all types of equity by 2015.
"The "Smart Listing" system is an enhancement of the SET's operating standard into the digital era in facilitating all listed companies by cutting down the
amount of paperwork, eliminating duplicate data filing and offering simplified online document submission system.  As a result, the listing of new ordinary
shares and warrants will be more convenient, allowing investors to trade their securities on the Thai exchange in a more timely fashion. SET held training
sessions for listed firms to help them familiarize with this system," said Supakit.
"During the past decade, SET has continued to develop its systems related to the listing of securities and the disclosure of listed firms' information,
including the web-based disclosure service and the news template for listed companies, to conveniently and timely distribute key information to investors.
In 2012, the Thai exchange first introduced the "Smart Listing" system for DW, which has helped reduce the amount of time spent on the approval of DW listing to two working days from 10 working days. SET continues to develop the service to cover all securities in the future," added Supakit.

Vietnam index loses 1.8 pct after tycoon's detention

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   dropped 1.81 percent on Monday as investors offloaded most stocks after one of the country's top tycoons was detained last week on suspicion of fraud.
Vietnam police detained Ha Van Tham, the founder and chairman of conglomerate Ocean Group , on suspicion of financial irregularities, the ministry of public securities said on Friday.  
Shares of Ocean Group tumbled 6.42 percent to close at a more-than five-month low, having lost as much as 18 percent since Wednesday when market talk about the tycoon started to spread.
 Investors offloaded around two-thirds of the total equities traded on the stock exchange as caution reigned, even as trading volumes during the afternoon session nearly doubled from the level seen in early trade, Reuters data showed.
 "The market usually falls about two to three percent amid such news," said analyst Tran Thang Long of BIDV Securities, referring to Ha Van Tham's detention.
 "If there is no more news, the decline is likely to end here," Long added.
Despite a steep fall on the market, foreign investors bought a net 7.3 billion dong ($343,610) in shares, after being net sellers for most of October, exchange data showed.

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Indonesia down after cabinet appointment

 Indonesia's stock market fell to a more than one-week low on Monday as the appointment of a new cabinet failed to lift investor sentiment, while in several other Southeast Asian markets upbeat U.S. economic data helped cap the falls.  
The Jakarta Composite Index   ended down 1 percent, led by financials, with Bank Rakyat Indonesia  and Bank Central Asia   falling 2.3 percent and 1.1 percent respectively.  
\ Indonesia's new president on Sunday named professional technocrats to lead the top economic ministries and implement much-needed reforms that address costly fuel subsidies, cooling investment and creaky infrastructure in Southeast Asia's biggest economy.  
However, analysts said the market perceived the move as short of its expectations.  
Foreigners, however, bought a net $55.65 million worth of Indonesian shares.   
 Kuala Lumpur saw net foreign outflows of $9.07 million, while Manila witnessed $6.58 million in outflows, data from their exchanges showed.  
For Bangkok, it was $41.43 million in outflows
Asian equities rose on Monday, taking heart from upbeat U.S. economic data and slightly better-than-expected health checks on euro zone banks, which helped revive investor appetite for risk.
The Philippines stock index  ended flat, recovering from early losses, while Thailand , Malaysia   and Singapore   all ended firmer.
 Vietnam   closed down 1.8 percent in cautious trading as investors offloaded most stocks after one of the country's top tycoons was detained last week on suspicion of fraud.
In Manila, shares of BDO Unibank Inc   traded steady after the Philippines' biggest lender by assets posted a 41 percent gain in its September quarter net income.  
 Market                   Current         Prev Close       Pct Move
 Singapore              3226.11            3222.55             +0.11

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
