Vietnam's VN Index closed down 0.17 percent on Thursday with investors in cautious mood or awaiting portfolio restructuring by exchange-traded funds (ETFs) next week, analysts said.

Confectionery firm Kinh Do  shares fell by 1.64 percent and real estate company Vingroup was down 0.79 percent. Dairy firm Vinamilk lost 0.72 percent and top insurer Baoviet   0.55 percent.
Steelmaker Hoa Phat was among the few blue-chip gainers, up 1.46 percent to 33,100 dong ($1.6), its highest closing price since May 14, 2010.

The index would fall or stay flat next week because of low liquidity and expectation ETFs would continue a selling trend, said an analyst at Ho Chi Minh Securities, predicting the index would linger between 460 to 480 points until late October.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index
                      VN Index       475.59            
                PREV. CLOSE        476.4            
                 % CHANGE       -0.17%

Stock markets in Thailand and the Philippines retreated from their near four-week highs on Thursday after early gains while others mostly moved in sideways as investors awaited cues from a U.S. Fed meeting next week on the future of its stimulus programme.
Thailand's stock index lost 0.9 percent after trading firmer in the early trade, snapping a five straight session gaining streak, from its near four week high.  
Manila's main stock index, which had gained 4.3 percent in the previous four sessions, edged down 0.3 percent from a near four-week low. After the market closed, the  Philippine central bank held its benchmark rate and the rate on its special deposit account (SDA) facility steady.

Analysts said markets have been waiting for cues for the Federal Open Market Committee meeting next week with hopes of the United States may begin scaling back its monthly asset-buying programme, but less aggressively than it was originally planned after Friday's disappointing jobs data.

Jakarta's Composite Index edged up 0.17 percent before Bank Indonesia  hiked interest rates in a surprise move, signalling growing alarm over rupiah, which hit a 4-1/2-year low on Thursday before recovering.

The region's markets have mostly gained this week on improving global economic outlook due to China's stronger-than-expected industrial output data following upbeat exports numbers, and receding fears of a U.S. military strike on Syria.

Singapore's Straits Times index  edged up 0.4 to its near three-week high, Malaysia  ended 0.2 percent firmer at more than three-week high.

Vietnam's main stock index ended 0.2 percent weaker with investors in cautious mood or awaiting portfolio restructuring by exchange-traded funds (ETFs) next week, analysts said.

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
