The index at midday rebounded slightly from its lowest intra-day level in a month of 605.63 points, with nearly two-thirds of the shares losing ground, especially in trade-beneficial sectors such as textiles and seafood.
Vietcombank  VCB.HM , Vietnam's top lender by market value, led the decliners with a 3.61 percent fall, while top insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  tumbled as much as 6.86 percent to a four-week low on profit-taking after July's 28 percent rise.

SE Asia Stocks - Malaysia at 2-month closing high; Vietnam falls

Malaysia's key index hit a  two-month closing high on Monday amid a fall in the ringgit and foreign-led buying of shares while Vietnam's benchmark hit a one-month closing low after the latest round of Pacific trade talks concluded at the weekend without a deal.    
 Kuala Lumpur's composite index  .KLSE  rose 1.2 percent to 1,744.19, it highest close since June 5, after late buying that  saw telecom shares rallying. Shares of Maxis Bhd  MXSC.KL  and Axiata Group Bhd  AXIA.KL   notched up gains of almost 8 percent each.
The Malaysian bourse said it saw foreign inflows for a second straight day on Monday, with foreign investors buying a net 88.9 million ringgit ($23.08 million) worth of shares after Friday's 132 million ringgit ($34.28 million) net purchase.
The ringgit's  MYR=  woes worsened due to the political pressures on Prime Minister Najib Razak as a result of the scandal over indebted state-fund 1MDB.
Others in the region ended mixed amid weaknesses in Asian stocks and a drop in global oil prices.

Singapore  .FTSTI  slipped to the lowest close since Oct. 20 while Indonesia  .JKSE  drifted slightly into negative territory, reversing from a one-week closing high on Friday.
Thai stocks  .SETI  eked out small gains while the Philippines  .PSI  rose for a fourth day.
