The KLCI trimmed its earlier losses in the mid day but still finished lower at 1768.62 points in the last trading day of September. 558 stocks in the local market declined as opposed to 227 gaining counters as the market sentiment was weakened by the concerns of a potential government shutdown in US. Incidentally, a Chinese manufacturing index rose less than analysts forecast in September, unexpectedly weakening from a preliminary estimate in a result that casts doubt on the strength of the economy’s rebound.

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index rose 1.24 percent to close at 492.63 points on Monday, the highest in five weeks, led by banks following a comment by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on a possible increase of foreign ownership in Vietnamese firms.   
Vietnam was considering to increase the foreign ownership ceiling in several sectors, including banks, Dung told foreign investors in New York late last week, according to the government's news website ((
"This statement has boosted up investors' appetite, especially in the banking sector," analyst Nguyen The Minh at Viet Capital Securities said.

Banks led the rise, with shares of Hanoi-based Vietcombank jumping 4.26 percent to 26,900 dong ($1.27) each.

VietinBank, the country's top partly private bank, was up 2.47 percent, and Sacombank  increased 1.14 percent.
Baoviet Holdings, Vietnam's biggest insurer, and dairy products maker Vinamilk also edged up on Monday.
Analysts also expected the HSBC's Vietnam Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index for September to be above 50, which would be a positive news to stock investors.

The VN Index could briefly hit 500 points this week as investors take profits on small-cap blue chips, Minh said.
  Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Stocks in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines underperformed in Southeast Asia on Monday amid selling in large caps such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia as concerns of a likely shutdown of the U.S. government plagued global markets.

Indonesian main index dropped 2.4 percent, taking its loss for July-September quarter to 10.4 percent, the biggest  since December 2008. Philippine main index slipped 3 percent, with a 4.4 percent fall in the third quarter.
Thai SET index finished down 2.4 percent on the day, ending the quarter 4.7 percent lower in light volume and amid a short selling activity, which hit large caps such as Siam Commercial Bank Pcl and Kasikornbank Pcl.
Foreign funds continued shifting money out of the region, traders said. Indonesia recorded foreign selling worth 806 billion rupiah ($69.86 million) on Monday, adding on $170 million net foreign selling over the previous four sessions, Thomson Reuters data showed.

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
