Vietnam index eases 0.1 pct on profit taking

The VN Index   in Ho Chi Minh City dipped 0.08 percent on Thursday as investors took profits from recent gains, with data showing Vietnamese shares in overbought territory.

The index, Southeast Asia's top performer this year, has risen 4.5 percent in the past two weeks and has closed up in seven out of nine sessions after surpassing 610 points on Aug. 21, Reuters data showed. That was a closing high of nearly five years.
Vietnamese equities are second cheapest in Southeast Asia after Singapore, with a price-to-earning ratio of 14.89. That compares with the Philippines' 21.23, the most expensive, according to Reuters data.

"Today is clearly a profit taking session, but selling pressure was not strong," said Nguyen Tuan of An Binh Securities. "Some investors were cautious, but most were optimistic, taking profit to  buy back at lower prices or switching to other equities."

The benchmark's relative strength index eased from a day earlier to 82, having stayed above 70 for nearly two weeks, which indicates overbought territory for Vietnamese shares, Reuters data showed.

But analysts forecasted the market to rise further after some corrections expected in coming sessions. Average daily volume on the exchange in the third quarter as of the end of August was more than 20 percent higher compared to the previous three months.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

                           VN Index       640.22            
                  PREV. CLOSE       640.75            
                     % CHANGE       -0.08%

SE Asia Stocks - Profit-taking hits overbought markets

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Thursday as profit-taking hit overbought shares in Thailand and Vietnam, while the Indonesian key index
retreated from a record closing high in the previous session amid large-cap selling by domestic investors.

Top losers in Bangkok included shares of airport operator  Airports of Thailand, which touched a record high on Wednesday amid expectations of a possible relaxation of martial law in some tourist areas.
The benchmark SET index    eased 0.2 percent after four straight sessions of gains. Its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) fell to 70.36 at the close from Wednesday's 73.47. A level of 70 or above suggests shares were overbought.

The VN Index   in Ho Chi Minh City dipped 0.08 percent as investors took profits from recent gains, with data showing Vietnamese shares in the overbought territory.
Jakarta's composite index    was down 0.36 percent at 5,205.32, coming off a record close of 5,224.135 on Wednesday.   

Domestic investors were net sellers of shares such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia .
Stocks in Singapore    and the Philippines retreated from gains early in the week, boosted by speculation on the European Central Bank's  stimulus measure, which could lead to foreign fund inflows.

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
