Vietnam index closes up 0.1 pct, volumes down
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 0.15 percent on Thursday after sentiment turned cautious following the market's failure to surpass a five-year
high in the previous session.
The index ended at 607.62, off the highest intra-day level since Oct. 2009 of 610.88 it touched on Wednesday on gains in big-caps.
Volumes were down 3 percent from the previous day to 91.13 million shares, Reuters data showed.
Shares in Vinamilk , Vietnam's top dairy product maker, ended up 1.45 percent at 140,000 dong ($6.6), its highest since April 25.
"Investors could hold main shares in their portfolio and do not have to sell at any price until the market conditions change remarkably," BIDV Securities said in a note to clients.

SE Asia Stocks - Range-bound amid foreign outflows
Stocks in the Philippines and Indonesia eked out small gains on Thursday helped by selective buying in large caps such as Globe Telecoms but the region saw more outflows as investors in Asia flocked to safe haven assets due to rising global risks.
Foreign investors sold shares in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, data showed, amid weak regional sentiment spooked by a Russian troop build-up on the border with Ukraine and tit-for-tat economic sanctions between the West and Moscow.
Philippine-listed Globe Telecoms jumped 3.6 percent to a record close, adding on Wednesday's rise after its strong earnings for the first half. Shares of Indonesia's Bank Rakyat Indonesia were among the few bright spots in Jakarta.
Malaysia's outflows on Thursday were valued at 145 million ringgit ($45.22 million), ahead of Thailand's 1.03 billion baht ($31.94 million), Indonesia's 237.7 billion rupiah (20.16 million) and the Philippine's 168.9 million peso ($3.84 million).
Foreign money has shifted into bonds, with foreign ownership in Indonesian government bonds reaching a record high this week amid an increasing flow of global funds to emerging markets.
Thailand saw foreign inflows into long term corporate and government bonds in the first four days of August, the Thai Bond Market Association's data showed.
In July, the inflows of short- and long-term bonds were worth a net 108 billion baht ($3.35 billion), the biggest monthly inflows this year, it said.
