Vietnam index at 7-wk low; GAS falls as crude slumps

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  fell 0.88 percent on Friday to close at 589.03 points, the lowest since June 26, led by the tumble of PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM  as global crude oil prices plunged.
GAS shares ended down 6.25 percent at 52,500 dong ($2.38), the lowest close since April 2013, with investors' sentiment hurt after U.S. oil prices dropped to a 6-1/2-year low following data that showed a big rise in U.S. stockpiles, analysts said.  
Friday marked the index's fourth straight fall, bringing this week's decline to a combined 2.4 percent, partially dragged by the State Bank of Vietnam's doubling its dollar/dong trading band to counter yuan fall on Wednesday.  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Fall on week; Malaysia declines on ringgit

 Malaysia's main stock index posted the worst weekly drop in almost seven years on Friday amid a fall in the ringgit  MYR=MY  and foreign outflows but oversold stocks in Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia rebounded after late buying.
The ringgit  MYR=MY  hit a fresh pre-peg 17-year low after a fall in oil prices increased concerns over Malaysia's exports.
The Malaysian bourse posted outflows through the week, with net foreign selling on Friday worth 404 million ringgit ($99 million).
The Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  closed down 1.5 percent on the day and 5 percent lower on the week, the biggest weekly loss since October 2008.
Singapore's index  .FTSTI  gained for a second day, trimming its weekly loss to 2.6 percent. The Thai index  .SETI  ended five days of declines, slipping 1 percent on the week. Indonesia  .JKSE  erased early losses, with a 3.9 percent fall on the week.
Volatility in regional currencies after China's yuan devaluation prompted investors to cash in on recent gainers, with Philippines  .PSI  down for a third day and posting a weekly loss of 1.7 percent.
Vietnam  .VNI , the region's strongest performer this year, marked a fourth straight fall, with a decline of 2.4 percent on the week, partially dragged down by the State Bank of Vietnam doubling its dollar/dong trading band to counter the yuan's fall on Wednesday.
