Vietnam index ends down 0.9 pct on selling in energy, bank stocks

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended Monday's trading below the 600-point level, pulled down by selling in energy and bank stocks.
The index ended 0.86 percent lower at the session low of 599.78, with 127.43 million shares traded, above the five-day average of 122.7 million, according to Reuters data.
The market has yet to recover after having lost 4.6 percent over eight days between Sept. 15-24, partly due to selling by exchange-traded funds during their portfolio review.
Petrovietnam Gas , the country's biggest listed firm by market value, lost 0.93 percent to close at 107,000 dong each. Petrovietnam Drilling and Well Services Corp  ended down 1.03 percent at 96,500 dong.

Both the firms are subsidiaries of state-run Petrovietnam group.

Eximbank , Vietcombank , Military Bank   and VietinBank   also ended lower.
Short-term investors should monitor developments and be ready to sell if signs point to a slide in the markets, FPT Securities said in a note to clients.
But given the faster pace of economic expansion, the market's correction period would end soon, Vietcombank Securities said.
Vietnam's economic growth quickened in the third quarter ending September to an annual rise of 6.19 percent, the fastest quarterly growth since the fourth quarter of 2010.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Thai shares snap rising streak after weak exports data

Thai stocks snapped eight sessions of gains on Monday as disappointing August exports data fuelled late selling in an overbought market, while most others in Southeast Asia were flat-to-weaker amid weakness in regional currencies.
The Thai SET index   closed down 0.9 percent after rallying 2.2 percent in the previous eight trading sessions.

Large-caps fell on strong volume, including Bangkok Bank , Advanced Info Service   and PTT .
The index closed at 1,585.79, down from Friday's close of 1,600.16, which sent its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) to 71.9. A reading above 70 indicates an overbought market.
 "The trade data added to an already weak market sentiment as we also had a technical-led selling around the 1,600 level," said Viwat Techapoonphol, a senior strategist at Tisco Securities.
Thai exports in August suffered the biggest percentage drop since bad flooding in late 2011, confirming that a key engine of the country's economy was not firing. 
Indonesian shares    edged higher, rebounding from a more than seven-week low hit earlier, while Philippine shares  were flat amid foreign-led selling in telecoms stocks such as Globe Telecom .
The Indonesian rupiah   hit a seven-month low on Monday on worries about political uncertainty and in response to the U.S. dollar's broad strength, while Asian currencies retreated broadly.  

 Market                  Current        Prev Close    Pct Move
 Singapore             3289.72           3292.21         -0.08
 Kuala Lumpur       1846.34          1840.50         +0.32
 Bangkok               1585.79          1600.16          -0.90
 Jakarta                  5142.01          5132.56         +0.18
 Manila                   7265.36          7261.30          -0.06
 Ho Chi Minh           599.78            604.98           -0.86

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
