Vietnam index ends below 3-mth low, more selling
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI fell 0.74 percent to 561.04 on Thursday, a level unseen since Sept. 7, with analysts expecting further declines.
The fall was led by large-caps such as PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM with a 1.55 percent drop, while VietinBank CTG.HM , Vietnam's second-largest listed lender by assets, fell 1.63 percent.
Foreigners have been net sellers of Vietnamese shares for four straight sessions as of Thursday .VMFN.HM , while analysts expect more offloads from both domestic and overseas investors until bargain-hunting sets in around 550 levels.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at close .

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down as growth worries linger
Southeast Asian stock markets closed mostly lower on Thursday as concerns over global economic growth persisted, with Malaysia posting its biggest single-day percentage loss in a month.
Malaysia's main stock index .KLSE fell 0.7 percent, its lowest closing level since Oct. 5.
Electricity producer Tenaga Nasional Bhd TENA.KL dropped 1.1 percent, among the biggest losers on Thursday.
"Given the absence of window-dressing, bearish technical momentum and slumping oil prices should exert downside pressure on blue chips in the immediate term," TA Securities in Kuala Lumpur wrote in a note on Thursday.
The Singapore .STI and Philippine .PSI indexes each dropped by 0.4 percent.
The Thai stock market was closed for a public holiday on Thursday and will resume trading Friday.
The Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE in Indonesia rose 0.05 percent, after a 1.3 percent decline on Tuesday. The Indonesian
market was closed on Wednesday for a public holiday.
Bank Central Asia Tbk BBCA.JK , the country's biggest bank by market value, led the gainers with a 3.7 percent increase,
after a senior Bank Indonesia official said there was room for a cut in the central bank's benchmark interest rate even if the
U.S. Federal Reserve raised rates at its meeting this month.
Energy shares, however, remained under pressure.
Oil and gas company PT Medco Energi Internasional MEDC.JK fell 5.3 percent to close at its lowest in 14 years.
