The FBM KLCI index gained 1.02 points or 0.06% on Thursday. The Finance Index increased 0.24% to 16469.45 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.46% to 1330.48 points and the Plantation Index down 0.65% to 8300.12 points. The market traded within a range of 5.14 points between an intra-day high of 1773.29 and a low of 1768.15 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include TMS, KBUNAI-OR, SUMATEC-WA, SILVER, SONA-WA, SERSOL, ASIABIO, PELIKAN, AT and IRCB-WA. Trading volume decreased to 1842.93 mil shares worth RM1296.80 mil as compared to Wednesday’s 1899.31 mil shares worth RM1587.28 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+84 sen to RM63.34), HLFG (+16 sen to RM14.94), UMW (+12 sen to RM11.62), PETDAG (+10 sen to RM29.10) and MISC (+8 sen to RM5.18). Lagging Movers were KLK (-20 sen to RM22.70), FGV (-8 sen to RM4.11), SKPETRO (-4 sen to RM3.81), ASTRO (-3 sen to RM2.92) and GENTING (-2 sen to RM10.40). Market breadth was negative with 351 gainers as compared to 402 losers.

The KLCI closed marginally higher at 1771.37 points, as investors’ worries on the US government shutdown were probably offset by the encouraging services-industry index in China, which climbed to a 6-month high.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index eased 0.08 percent by midday on Thursday as investors took profit following gains of most blue chips in the previous session.  

Banks lost ground, with shares of Vietnam Export Import Bank dropping 1.42 percent, and Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   dipping 1.08 percent.
Investors selling was behind the drop on Thursday but if the index reversed its course to rise later in the day, it could extend the uptrend in the next few sessions, analyst Le Dac An at Tan Viet Securities said.  

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at midday

                     VN Index       493.99

The Philippine index hit a one-week closing high on Thursday as Moody's sovereign rating upgrade lifted appetite for the emerging market, while stocks in Thailand and Indonesia marked their third day of gains as large caps further recouped losses.

The Philippines earned its third investment-grade upgrade in about five months after Moody's raised the country's sovereign debt rating by a notch to Baa3, a widely expected move that will further boost the country's allure among foreign investors.

The Philippine main index  <.PSI>  finished up 0.4 percent at 6,387.65. Metropolitan Bank & Trust   shares rose 0.7 percent, after Moody's upgraded it along with three other Philippine banks.
The benchmark climbed almost 1 percent but dropped on profit-taking. Analysts said the upgrade was largely in line with expectations.

"The upgrade was signalled earlier ... so the muted reaction. I think strong corporate performance will be sustained given the high-growth trajectory cited by Moody's," said Luz Lorenzo, head of research at Maybank ATR Kim Eng Securities.
The Thai SET index and Indonesia's key index  hovered around one-week closing highs as shares in Siam Commercial Bank rose on short-covering, while PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia gained for a third day.

Traders said the rise in Indonesia's index was in part due to optimism about foreign reserves data expected to be released on Friday.

"Jakarta's Composite Index extended gains today in anticipation of stable or higher foreign reserves announcement expected tomorrow," said John Teja, director of Ciptadana Securities.

Several markets saw foreign outflows amid concerns about the U.S. government shutdown. The Philippines saw net foreign selling of $1.20 million, Malaysia's was $20.14 million, while for Indonesia, the number was $846,500, according to Thomson
Reuters and stock exchange data.

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
