Vietnam stock index edges down 0.15 pct in robust trade
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI dipped 0.15 percent at close on Monday, snapping a two-day winning streak, as losses in the real estate sector offset gains in several big caps.
Top property and retail firm Vingroup VIC.HM dropped 3.67 percent after having jumped 9.7 percent in the last three
sessions, followed by refiner PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM dropping 2.42 percent on downbeat global oil prices.
As many as 161.6 million shares changed hand, quite above the five-day average of 132.4 million.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down; Fed, BOJ meetings awaited
All Southeast Asian stock markets ended weaker on Monday, led by Singapore, as cautious investors waited
for cues ahead of central bank meetings in the United States and Japan, that will be held later this week.
Bank of Japan policymakers are likely to discuss further easing when they meet on Wednesday and Thursday, while the U.S. Federal Reserve, which lifted its benchmark overnight interest rate in December for the first time in nearly a decade, meets on Wednesday.
The Singapore share index .STI closed down 1.4 percent to a near-two-week low, while Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) .JKSE closed 0.7 percent weaker, both led by financials.
"JCI retreated in line with regional direction, and volatility will remain ahead of central banks meeting in Japan
and the U.S. later this week," said John Teja, director at Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.
"I think the Fed rate will leave interest rates unchanged on Thursday as global economic and financial developments
apparently are weighting on the Fed decision."
Malaysia's stock index .KLSE fell 0.2 percent, while the Philippines Composite Index .PSI ended down 0.07 percent.
The Thai SET index .SETI , the best performer so far this year, retreated from early gains to close down 0.2 percent, and Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI also dipped 0.2 percent, snapping a two-day winning streak, as losses in the real estate sector offset early gains in several big caps.
