Vietnam index rebounds on bargain hunting, rate cuts

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ticked up 0.4 percent to close on Tuesday, snapping a three-fall streak, as investors bought cheap shares ahead of the
central bank's key rate cuts, analysts and traders said.
The index ended at 583.13 points after hitting its lowest close since July 2 on Monday when investors offloaded most stocks after one of the country's top tycoons was detained on suspicion of fraud.
The State Bank of Vietnam on Tuesday said it would lower the ceiling on dollar and dong deposits, a move that the market has expected and which could reduce loan rates and boost economic growth.  
 "Seems like the main reason for today's rally is the rate cuts, besides bargain hunting after a steep fall on Monday," said a Hanoi-based trader with Ho Chi Minh City Securities.
About half of the number of equities on the exchange advanced, led by Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   with a 1.92 percent rise and steel producer Hoa Phat Group  that increased 1.89 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Indonesia down at near two-week low; Fed meet eyed

Southeast Asian markets ended mixed on Tuesday with Indonesia falling to a near-two-week low as investors awaited the outcome of the U.S. Federal Reserve meeting that begins later in the session for clues to the direction of U.S. interest rates.
The Jakarta Composite Index  closed 0.5 percent weaker at its lowest since Oct. 16, recording a decline for a third straight session as the country's newly-appointed cabinet weighed on investor sentiment.
Jakarta-based Trimegah Securities in a research note said Indonesian President Joko Widodo's cabinet has more political appointees than expected holding several important posts.
Trimegah expects the market to remain sceptical and will need to see a sizable fuel price hike of 2,000 rupiah or more for the Jokowi government to regain the full confidence of investors.
 Foreign investors sold a net $52.46 million worth of Indonesian stocks on Tuesday, Thomson Reuters data showed.  
In other markets, investors were broadly concerned over the  outcome of the Fed meeting.  
Singapore-based NetResearch Asia in a investor note said the Fed's post-meeting comments will be closely watched with observers divided as to whether there would be any change in its stance on interest rates and especially on any changes to the end date for the third round of quantitative easing.
"Though some may cheer such a move, it would also signal to others that the Fed's grasp on economic indicators may not be as thorough as it should be, especially after recent assurances that plans are on track," it said.
The Philippines   and Singapore    fell 0.5 percent each to one-week lows.      

Thailand , bucking the trend, gained 0.6 percent to its highest close since Oct. 9, despite foreign investors selling a net $71.53 million worth of shares.
Malaysia   recouped early losses to end marginally higher, while Vietnam   rebounded on bargain-hunting.

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
