Vietnam index ends at over 7-wk high; Pacific trade deal supports

Vietnam's VN Index  .VNI  rose 1.98 percent on Tuesday to close at its highest since Aug. 14, with most shares advancing following the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal.
Financial shares led the gainers, with top lender Vietcombank  VCB.HM  rising 4.11 percent to close near a four-week high, while insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  jumped 6.25 percent and Saigon Securities Incorp  SSI.HM  advanced 6.41 percent.  
Shares of textile and seafood companies also rallied as Vietnam, a major exporter of seafood, garments and footwear, could benefit strongly from the TPP, experts said.  
Fisheries producer and exporter Hung Vuong Corp  HVG.HM  climbed 6.9 percent to above a seven-week closing high, while Thanh Cong Textile Garment Investment Trading JSC  TCM.HM  ended
up 2.09 percent, its highest closing level since July 31.
"Despite some time lag needed for TPP to be implemented, the deal in the short term will be a breath of fresh air to the market thanks to its potential benefits for Vietnam," said Do Quang Hop, deputy head of research at Saigon-Hanoi Securities.
Hop said the index could advance further to 600 points, a strong resistance level.
The Vietnam index has been Asia's best performer so far this year thanks to the country's strong performance in manufacturing and exports, most of which, however, are foreign-driven, and potential gains from several trade deals, including TPP.


SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia at 5-week high as inflows continue

Indonesian key index hit a more than five-week high on Tuesday amid a strengthening rupiah and inflows boosting large caps, while stocks in Malaysia and Vietnam climbed to their multi-week highs following a pacific trade deal.
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  jumped 2.4 percent to its highest close since Aug. 31. Foreign investors bought shares worth a net 845 billion rupiah ($59.3 million), including Bank Rakyat Indonesia  BBRI.JK  and Astra International  ASII.JK .
The rupiah  IDR=ID  rose and led gains among emerging Asian currencies as foreign investors sought higher yields on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve may hold off raising interest rates, also giving a boost to global stock markets.
Twelve Pacific Rim countries on Monday reached the most ambitious trade pact in a generation, aiming to liberalize commerce in 40 percent of the world's economy in a deal that faces skepticism from U.S. lawmakers.   
Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  ended up 0.9 percent to close at its highest level since Sept. 18, with Vietnam  .VNI  ending at its highest close since Aug. 14 amid hopes of greater access to Japan and U.S. economies.  
Singapore's index  .STI  advanced to a near four-week high and the Philippine index  .PSI  climbed to a more than two-week high. The Thai index  .SETI  erased some early gains amid selling in banking stocks on expectations of weak third quarter earnings.
