Vietnam index up 0.15 pct ahead of Fed rate decision

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  edged up 0.15 percent on Wednesday amid caution ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's meeting, while an exchange-traded fund's portfolio adjustment sent some large-caps to mixed territories.
Analysts in Vietnam braced for the possibility of the first interest rate hike in the United States in almost a decade, which would send the VN Index down further. The index lost 9.1 percent in August and has been moving marginally so far this month.
BIDV  BID.HM , Vietnam's biggest partly private lender by assets, dropped 6.67 percent after Market Vectors Vietnam ETF  VNM.P , a major exchange-traded fund of Vietnamese shares, revoked its decision to add BID shares to its portfolio on Tuesday.

VNM ETF, however, said it would purchase more shares of Vietcombank  VCB.HM , Vietnam's top lender by market value, and property firm HAGL  HAG.HM . VCB advanced 3.04 percent and HAG climbed 4.08 percent at the close.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

            VN Index     564.13             
         PREV. CLOSE     563.27             
            % CHANGE     +0.15%

SE Asia Stocks-Most up ahead of Fed decision; Thai banks up after cenbank keeps rates

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday, with indexes in Singapore and Thailand snapping losing streaks, as world share markets rose ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's interest rate decision.
Banking shares jumped in the Thai stock market after the Bank of Thailand left its benchmark interest rate unchanged for a third straight meeting on Wednesday, as widely expected.
Shares of Bangkok Bank Pcl  BBL.BK  climbed 1.2 percent and Siam Commercial Bank Pcl  SCB.BK  hit a near three-week closing high, sending the key SET index  .SETI  0.8 percent higher, its first gain in five trading days.
"The rate cut will depress banks' net interest margins. The decision to keep rate unchanged is positive for banks," said a bank analyst at broker Phillip Securities.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .FTSTI  ended up 0.94 percent, recouping some of the losses over previous three days and reflecting short covering activities, according to broker NRA Capital.
Indexes in the Philippines  .PSI  and Vietnam  .VNI  both were little changed, while Indonesia's index  .JKSE  eased for a second day in line with a fall in the rupiah  IDR=ID .
World share markets rose on Wednesday, albeit in thin volume, and short-term U.S. bond yields held near 4-1/2-year highs as investors braced for the possibility of the first interest rate hike in the United States in almost a decade.  

Malaysia's stock market  .KLSE  was closed on Wednesday, reopening on Thursday.     
 Market                Current     Prev Close      Pct Move
 Singapore           2868.74        2841.94            +0.94
 Bangkok            1381.80         1370.65            +0.81
 Jakarta               4332.51         4347.16             -0.34
 Manila               7093.92         7089.01            +0.07

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

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
