The FBM KLCI index gained 2.83 points or 0.16% on Friday. The Finance Index increased 0.37% to 16182.73 points, the Properties Index dropped 0.29% to 1263.48 points and the Plantation Index rose 0.42% to 8153.7 points. The market traded within a range of 6.45 points between an intra-day high of 1726.28 and a low of 1719.83 during the session.

Actively traded stocks include INSTACO, SUPERMX-CM, COMPUGT, IRCB-WA, SONA-WA, CLIQ-WA, ETITECH, PALETTE, FLONIC and APFT-WA. Trading volume decreased to 1098.22 mil shares worth RM1448.59 mil as compared to Thursday’s 1592.90 mil shares worth RM1656.34 mil.

Leading Movers were BAT (+90 sen to RM61.46), MAYBANK (+12 sen to RM10.00), GENTING (+9 sen to RM9.39), PBBANK (+8 sen to RM17.40) and IHH (+6 sen to RM4.12). Lagging Movers were HLFG (-28 sen to RM14.20), UEMS (-7 sen to RM2.33), SKPETRO (-6 sen to RM3.51), RHBCAP (-3 sen to RM7.27) and AXIATA (-3 sen to RM6.72). Market breadth was positive with 352 gainers as compared to 339 losers.

The KLCI edged up marginally to close at 1723.80 points, tracking the slim gains of Wall Street as a slew of positive economic data in U.S. lifted market sentiment. Market trading was thin where trading volume barely breached 1 billion shares, as investors were staying at sideline and reluctant to take position ahead of the weekend.

Vietnam's VN Index edged up 0.52 percent to close at 480.03 points on Friday, tracking a rise in most regional sharemarkets, with property firms and banks leading the way.
 Foreign buying focused mostly on exchange-traded funds' portfolios, with real estate firms Hoang Anh Gia Lai up 2.5 percent and VinGroup  climbing 2.42 percent on positive news about its finances, according to one analyst.
 Most banks gained, with Vietcombank  up 1.7 percent, Military Bank   0.8 percent and Sacombank 0.6 percent. VietinBank, however, sank to its lowest since December 2012 at 16,700 dong ($0.79), an 8.91 percent drop due to dividend payments and a planned issue of new shares, analysts said.

They forecast the index would hover at around 480 to 490 points next week.

    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Southeast Asian stocks rose on Friday as players sought bargains from the beaten-down emerging equities but broad appetite remained weak ahead of U.S. jobs data.   

Jakarta's Composite Index  reversed earlier losses to close up 0.5 percent as the rupiah's spot rate  on Friday was seen 4.17 percent stronger from the opening price.

The gain helped trim the benchmark's weekly loss to 2.9 percent, still Southeast Asia's worst performer.

Indonesia's central bank released data after market close, showing foreign exchange reserves rose slightly in August.

Recent declines in the reserves were among market concerns.

Regional sharemarkets staged a mild rebound in the first week of September following a plunge in August amid rising risk
aversion and concerns about a potential cut in monetary stimulus in the United States.

Among outperformers, Thai SET index  climbed 1.7 percent on the day and 3.2 percent on the week. Singapore's key
index  edged up 0.3 percent on the day, ending the week 0.6 percent higher after four weeks of falls.

Across exchanges, stocks with greater exposure to improving global outlook and some battered blue chips were actively
bought, including Maybank, Keppel Corporation, Kasikornbank and SM Investments Corp

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
