Vietnam index ends down; banks lead losses
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended down 0.76 percent on Wednesday with gains in the energy stocks offsetting losses in several blue chips.
Banking shares led the losses, with the country's two-third listed lenders heading south.
Vietcombank VCB.HM , Vietnam's top bank by market value, fell 2.54 percent and VietinBank CTG.HM dropped 2.37 percent.
Energy stocks bucked the trend to rally after global oil prices jumped on weak dollar and strong investor appetite.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close.

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly subdued ahead of Fed, BOJ policy decisions
Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed weaker on Wednesday as investors remained cautious ahead of central bank policy decisions in the United States and Japan.
The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to hold interest rates steady later in the day when the two-day Federal Open Market
Committee (FOMC) meeting ends. It could also take a more upbeat view on the economy, keeping the way open for future rate hikes.
"Everybody is on a wait-and-see mood. They want to see the Fed views on the U.S. economy and Bank of Japan's stimulus
measures," said Teerada Charnyingyong, an analyst with Phillip Capital in Bangkok.
The Bank of Japan will make its policy decision on Thursday amid speculation it could ramp up its already extensive monetary
stimulus scheme, which includes negative interest rates on some deposits at the BOJ.
Thailand's SET index .SETI closed 0.5 percent down, led by financial stocks while Singapore's Strait Times Index .STI
fell 0.7 percent to its lowest close since April 12.
Malaysian shares .KLSE recovered from early falls to finish steady at a six-week closing low hit on Tuesday, despite
$25.62 million of foreign outflows.
Philippine stocks .PSI fell 0.4 percent, led by industrial and financial shares, while Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI
ended 0.8 percent down as losses in several blue chips offset gains in energy stocks.
Bucking the trend, the Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE ended 0.7 percent higher, its first gain in three sessions.
