The FBM KLCI index lost 8.42 points or 0.47% on Wednesday. The Finance Index fell 0.94% to 16631.18 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.38% to 1344.96 points and the Plantation Index down 0.15% to 8354.24 points. The market traded within a range of 8.03 points between an intra-day high of 1791.18 and a low of 1783.15 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include TMS, FRONTKN, FRONTKN-WA, CSL, GPACKET-WA, THHEAVY, THHEAVY-WA, SERSOL, AMEDIA-WA and DIGISTA-WA. Trading volume increased to 2211.33 mil shares worth RM2052.54 mil as compared to Tuesday’s 1923.62 mil shares worth RM1856.67 mil.
Leading Movers were PETDAG (+18 sen to RM28.96), GENTING (+4 sen to RM10.42), MAXIS (+4 sen to RM7.04), SIME (+1 sen to RM9.51) and AXIATA (+0 sen to RM6.90). Lagging Movers were BAT (-130 sen to RM63.50), HLFG (-32 sen to RM14.88), HLBANK (-24 sen to RM14.12), UMW (-16 sen to RM12.56) and RHBCAP (-14 sen to RM7.84). Market breadth was negative with 359 gainers as compared to 420 losers.

The KLCI extended its losses from the previous day after finishing 8.42 points lower at 1784.06 points, in line with the negative performance in US markets. We reckon the local market will continue to be in a flaccid manner as investors are still concerned over the uncertainty of Federal Reserve monetary policy and US debt ceiling limit.

Vietnam's VN Index  climbed 0.7 percent to close at 486.22 points on Wednesday with high liquidity, boosted by strong buying in big-cap stocks and improved sentiment about the country's economy, analysts said.

Investors bought companies expected to post good results in the third quarter, with dairy product maker Vinamilk  up 1.45 percent, top insurer Baoviet Holdings advancing 1.37 percent and PetroVietNam Gas 0.75 percent.

A gradual decline in deposit rates at some banks pulled money into other investment channels, including the stock market, said analyst Vu Tran Vinh Thuy at Dai Viet Securities.

Some positive economic developments in Vietnam this week, including a slight rise in quarterly GDP, activity by a asset management firm to help debt-laden banks and data showing slower inflation also boosted sentiment, he added.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Most Southeast Asian markets eased in light trade on Wednesday, wary of mixed signals on U.S. monetary policy, with the Indonesian benchmark extending losses for a fourth session amid a weak rupiah and falls in banking shares.
Indonesia underperformed, with Jakarta's Composite Index sliding 1.2 percent to 4,406.77, its lowest close in almost two weeks, with foreign investors selling a net 572 billion rupiah ($49.87 million) worth of shares.

Late buying by domestic institutions helped the index regain some of the ground it lost earlier, traders said.
The Thai stock exchange also saw strong buying from domestic investors late in the session, with the SET index  closing up 1.4 percent after a modest drop in morning trade.
Shares such as Kasikornbank and Siam Commercial Bank staged a mild rebound from earlier falls.
"Domestic investors were more active, including the bout of late buying," said Bangkok-based Teerawut Kanniphakul, a senior analyst at CIMB Securities.

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
