The FBM KLCI index gained 4.14 points or 0.23% on Tuesday. The Finance Index increased 0.12% to 16607.73 points, the Properties Index up 1.16% to 1305.9 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.14% to 8342.18 points. The market traded within a range of 12.35 points between an intra-day high of 1781.47 and a low of 1769.12 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include IRCB-WA, GPACKET-WA, IRCB-WA, FCW-WA, SALCON, GPACKET, TMS, DVM, INSTACO-WB and MAS. Trading volume increased to 1504.61 mil shares worth RM1746.18 mil as compared to Friday’s 1233.04 mil shares worth RM1382.74 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+66 sen to RM63.06), KLK (+36 sen to RM22.38), GENTING (+14 sen to RM10.14), PETDAG (+14 sen to RM28.14) and UMW (+12 sen to RM12.38). Lagging Movers were RHBCAP (-10 sen to RM7.50), HLBANK (-6 sen to RM14.04), GENM (-4 sen to RM4.36), SIME (-2 sen to RM9.50) and IOICORP (-2 sen to RM5.41). Market breadth was positive with 443 gainers as compared to 308 losers.

The local bourse inched up 4.14 points to close at 1774.94 which was on a positive mood on the first trading day of the week albeit most of the regional peers were in red. We opine that the FBM KLCI was still strongly supported by companies’ sturdy fundamentals which soothe local investors’ confidence. While across the region, nearly all markets were in red as investors held back ahead of US Federal Reserve meeting today at which stimulus trimming is expected.

Vietnam's VN Index edged up 0.45 percent to close at 477.73 points in a slightly higher volume, led by bank shares,  but investors were cautious.

Stocks of Hanoi-based Vietcombank climbed 2.38 percent to close at 25,800 dong ($1.22) each, its highest price since Aug. 22, and Sacombank gained 2.3 percent.

Top insurer Baoviet Holdings   rose 1.14 percent, and PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm by capitalisation, also edged up 0.77 percent.

The index could move at 470-480 points this week, while liquidity was expected to rise slowly, analyst Doan Thi Anh Nguyet at Saigon-Hanoi Securities said.

The market lacked supportive news to boost investors' appetite, she said.

Stocks in Indonesia and Thailand retreated from their one-month highs on Tuesday, while most other Southeast Asian stocks ended off the day's highs as investors trimmed their exposure to emerging markets before a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting later in the day.
Trading volume for most indexes slid below a full-day's average over the past 30 sessions, taking lead from world markets ahead of the Fed policy meeting at which it is expected to start scaling back its stimulus.
Across exchanges, selling hit recent large-cap gainers, including Indonesia's PT Astra International Tbk, Thailand's Kasikornbank Pcl   and Philippine SM Investment Corp.
Jakarta's Composite Index ended a modest 0.1 percent lower after a choppy session. It earlier climbed to a near
one-month high of 4,536.93, but lost as much as 1 percent in late trading hours, with short-term traders seen in the market.
The Thai SET index  finished 0.09 percent down after late selling pulled it off a one-month intraday high of 1,450.45, a key resistance level.  

Singapore's Straits Times Index erased early gains to end almost unchanged.

Malaysia and Vietnam eked out small gains, but both were off the day's highs. Philippine shares edged up 0.7 percent, helped by selective buying in large caps such as Manila Electric, which was among the outperformers due to dividend returns.

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
