The FBM KLCI index lost 0.11 points or 0.01% on Wednesday. The Finance Index increased 0.00% to 17259.38 points, the Properties Index up 0.32% to 1496.77 points and the Plantation Index down 0.20% to 8360.53 points. The market traded within a range of 5.33 points between an intra-day high of 1844.00 and a low of 1838.67 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include SUMATEC, PDZ, SUMATEC-WB, TMCLIFE-WA, EFFICEN, GLOTEC, MARCO, TAKASO, ASIABIO and NEXGRAM. Trading volume increased to 2689.77 mil shares worth RM2199.55 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 2357.42 mil shares worth RM2235.99 mil.

Leading Movers were YTL (+3 sen to RM1.69), MISC (+10 sen to RM6.90), BAT (+82 sen to RM69.80), HLFG (+16 sen to RM17.58) and RHBCAP (+5 sen to RM8.90).

Market breadth was positive with 427 gainers as compared to 371 losers.

The KLCI closed lower at 1840.08 points today. Throughout the trading day, the KLCI held on to modest gains, as local investors seeking bargains helped keep the local index afloat, amid gloomy market sentiment. Regionally, Asian markets slid but remained mixed, as an overnight decline in Wall Street and on-going air strikes in Syria, compounded by dovish statements by a Federal Reserve official did little to improve investor sentiment.

Vietnam index falls over 1 pct to 6-week low, selling weakens

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   closed down 1.1 percent on Wednesday, the eighth fall in a row, hitting the lowest in six weeks, but selling has weakened while a part of investors sought bargain hunting.
The index ended at 603.59, the lowest since Aug. 13, with 132.7 million shares changing hands, down 8 percent from the previous day's volume, based on Reuters data.
Several securities firms expect the index to recover once it hits the 600-610 point zone. FPT Securities said shares of oil and gas companies would be in focus during the next recovery.    
Petrovietnam Gas, the country's largest listed firm, ended down 3.67 percent at 105,000 dong on Wednesday, while Petrovietnam Well Drilling and Services Co  lost 2 percent to close at 98,000 dong.  
 The two are subsidiaries of state oil and gas group Petrovietnam.
The market outlook remains good, with macro economy looking solid, the central bank pushing forward the credit growth plan and foreign investors boosting their purchase, FPT Securities said.
 Data for Wednesday were not immediately available. On Tuesday foreign investors switched to being net buyers after being net sellers the previous day, the exchange said.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Most edge down on geopolitical woes, Eurozone worries

Most Southeast Asian stocks gave up early gains to end the trading day weaker on Wednesday as geopolitical tensions and a decline in Eurozone manufacturing activity weighed on sentiment, though Manila outperformed the region.  
The Jakarta Composite Index   surrendered early gains to end 0.3 percent down, its lowest close since Sept. 16. Singapore    closed 0.2 percent down at a more than one-week low, and Vietnam  fell 1.1 percent to its lowest close in six weeks.
Analysts said less-than-expected manufacturing in the Eurozone in September and U.S. airstrikes on militant groups in Syria may put pressure on high-risk assets.
The Philippine Index    ended 1.2 percent higher, while Thailand   closed up 0.1 percent with $143.52 million in foreign inflows.
The Malaysian stock index   fell slightly, with foreign outflows at $19.09 million.

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
