Vietnam index hits 8-month low, more falls expected

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI  closed down 5.28 percent on Monday to the lowest level in eight months following declines in U.S. stocks and global oil price falls, with most blue chips losing ground in high volume.

Fears of a China-led global economic slowdown drove Wall Street to its steepest one-day drop in nearly four years on Friday and left the Dow industrials more than 10 percent below a May record.

Oil prices extended their losses on Monday, with U.S. crude oil reaching the lowest level since February 2009, as China equities collapse sparks global markets sell-off.

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.
