Vietnam's VN Index closed down 1 percent on Thursday, bucking a regional sharemarket rebound as foreigners dumped stocks and local investors were reluctant to get involved, analysts said.

Financials led the fall with Vietcombank down 5.3 percent and BaoViet Holdings  shedding 4.5 percent, fuelled by net selling by exchange-traded funds.
Real estate companies also lost, with VinGroup down 3.15 percent and Hoang Anh Gia Lai  1 percent.
The foreign outflow meant the index could struggle to regain lost ground, unless there was news that could change sentiment
about Vietnam's sluggish economy, said Tran Minh Hoang of Vietcombank Securities.

"If foreign investors keep selling in the next days, the index will be unable recover as local investors always been
impacted negatively by foreigners' selling," Hoang said.

Indonesian shares rose for a second straight session on Thursday after the central bank raised interest rates, while Philippine stocks surged on
stronger-than-expected second-quarter GDP and the prospect of further growth.
Jakarta's Composite Index closed up 1.9 percent at the day's high of 4,103.59, pulling the benchmark from an oversold level of below 30 for the first time in almost two weeks. Its 14-day relative strength index was at 33.
Late afternoon, Bank Indonesia announced increases of 50 basis points for two key interest rates and forecast that the current account deficit will narrow in the third quarter.
The improving macro-economic outlook lifted broader market sentiment, with buying most active in large caps such as Astra International.

Shares in state-backed companies rose with Telkomunikasi Indonesia extending gains from the previous session amid a share buy-back plan.

The Philippine main index jumped 3.6 percent, making it the region's top performer of the day. It also recovered about half of its 7 percent loss over the past two sessions and bounced from the oversold mark, with its 14-day RSI at 34.7 at Thursday close.

Most Southeast Asian stocks staged a mild rebound, tracking gains in global markets. Stocks in Thailand  and Singapore  rose after 10 sessions of losses, while  Malaysian stocks  snapped a two-day falling streak.
Signs of a delay in expected Western military strikes on Syria ended a three-day sell-off on world share markets, but investors were on edge over whether any action would trigger turmoil across the Middle East.
