Vietnam index drops 1.58 pct on widespread selling

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed down 1.58 percent on Thursday, the largest fall in seven days, driven by strong selling across the board,
especially on stocks that had gains in recent weeks.
The number of shares losing ground was 3.5 times those that gained, and profit taking was strong in the energy and seafood sectors, which outperformed the broader market in the past few weeks.  
On Sept. 9 the index lost 2 percent on profit taking.

"The market looks quite bad, and selling could extend in the coming sessions," said analyst Hoang Huy of ACB Securities.
Petrovietnam Drilling & Well Services Corp , a subsidiary of state oil and gas group PetroVietnam, lost 2.8 percent, the second straight fall from its record high touched on Tuesday, Reuters data showed.
Seafood company Hung Vuong Corp  tumbled 6.94 percent in high volume. The stock hit its record high on Wednesday, having gained as much as 62 percent since Aug. 26, according to Reuters data.
Brokerage firms also retreated from their strong rallies on Wednesday, with Saigon Securities Incorp  and Ho Chi Minh City Securities    both falling more than 4 percent after closing at their five-month highs in the previous session.
"But the index is not likely to fall below 600 points," Huy said, adding that bargain hunting around this level is solid.    
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

                          VN Index        615.8

SE Asia Stocks - Most higher; Malaysia keeps rates steady

Most Southeast Asian markets gained on Thursday, with banking shares outperforming in Malaysia before the central bank rate decision, while stocks in
Indonesia and Thailand closed at their highest in more than a week.
Malaysia's central bank kept its key interest rate unchanged at 3.25 percent on Thursday, holding off from a second tightening in less than three months after recent signs of a slowdown in exports and credit growth.  
The rate decision came after the market closed.

Kuala Lumpur's composite index    ended a tad higher, with shares of Public Bank   and Maybank  rising in strong volume.
Local institutions and domestic retail investors bought Malaysian stocks worth a net 129.6 million ringgit ($40.12 million) and 11.5 million ringgit, respectively, while foreign investors were net sellers, stock exchange data showed.
Jakarta's composite index  edged up 0.4 percent while the Thai index  closed up 0.9 percent, both hitting their highest closing levels since Sept. 8.

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
