The FBM KLCI index lost 3.54 points or 0.20% on Wednesday. The Finance Index increased 0.34% to 16664.3 points, the Properties Index up 0.17% to 1308.08 points and the Plantation Index down 0.14% to 8330.86 points. The market traded within a range of 5.09 points between an intra-day high of 1774.78 and a low of 1769.69 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include AMEDIA-WA, CSL, IRCB-WA, IRCB, AMEDIA, MAXWELL, GPACKET-WA, SALCON-WA, FCW-WA and INSTACO-WB. Trading volume decreased to 1435.91 mil shares worth RM1481.95 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 1504.61 mil shares worth RM1746.18 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+32 sen to RM63.38), HLBANK (+16 sen to RM14.20), PETGAS (+16 sen to RM21.34), PBBANK (+6 sen to RM17.76) and RHBCAP (+4 sen to RM7.54). Lagging Movers were GENTING (-37 sen to RM9.77), GENM (-20 sen to RM4.16), KLK (-18 sen to RM22.20), MISC (-12 sen to RM5.03) and PETDAG (-12 sen to RM28.02). Market breadth was positive with 405 gainers as compared to 312 losers.

The FBMKLCI underwent a mild easing to close at 1,771.40, down by 3.54 points. The local bourse was firmly bolstered by the Finance sub-sector which inched up 56.57 points despite other sectors ended in red. The performance was in line with the most regional peers with most markets closed with mix results. We opine that any sort of announcement regarding the Federal Reserve stimulus tapering will inevitably have an effect on the market.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index dropped 0.73 percent to close at 474.26 points on Wednesday, with shares including blue chips being beaten by margin trading.

Shares of Petrovietnam Finance shed 6.98 percent, extending a week-long fall after it announced a merger with a domestic bank.  

It has been difficult to sell PVF stocks since, so investors sold other shares in their portfolio to qualify for the margin ratio, analyst Nguyen The Minh at Viet Capital Securities said.

Other banks also lost ground, with Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank sliding 2.33 percent, VietinBank, the country's largest partly private bank in terms of assets, losing 1.88 percent and Sacombank easing 1.69 percent.
Analysts said the index was not expected to pass the 480-485 point range by the end of the week.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  

                     VN Index       474.26            
              PREV. CLOSE       477.73            
                 % CHANGE       -0.73%            
                     HIGH       479.43            
                      LOW       473.52            


Southeast Asian stocks mostly fell on Wednesday, taking leads from markets across the globe ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve decision on scaling back of monetary stimulus.  
Jakarta's Composite Index  was the weakest performer, sliding 1.2 percent to 4,463.25 at close, near its day's low.
The exchange saw relatively moderate trading as selling hit banking shares due to concerns about a new mortgage regulation that could hurt loan growth.

Other regional indexes ended modestly lower in thin activity, including Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.
The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors were net sellers worth 73 million ringgit ($22.46 million) on the day while domestic institutions bought shares for nearly 99 million ringgit ($30.46 million).
Singapore eked out a small gain, helped by selective buying in large caps, with banking shares such as Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd among the outperformers.

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
