A total of 249 shares lost amongst the 298 shares on Vietnam's main exchange, led by banking and energy stocks.
Vietcombank VCB.HM , the country's biggest listed lender by market value, dropped 6.84 percent while Petrovietnam Gas GAS.HM tumbled 6.99 percent.
The index fell 5.28 percent on Monday, the biggest decline since May 8, 2014, to end at 526.093 points, the lowest level since Dec. 19, 2014. Volume hit 174.56 million shares, above the five-day average of 134.75 million, Thomson Reuters data show.
The index, which has dropped in four consecutive sessions, could face more falls in the next few sessions, analysts said.
