Vietnam index eases slightly as banks fall
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended 0.18 percent lower after a robust session on Wednesday, with most blue-chips heading south led by banking shares.
Five of the country's six listed lenders declined, including Vietcombank VCB.HM , Vietnam's second-biggest firm by market value, which dropped 1.24 percent, and BIDV BID.HM which shed 1.84 percent.
Top dairy products maker Vinamilk VNM.HM bucked the trend, advancing 1.56 percent as investors expect the firm to raise its foreign ownership limit.
As many as 131.16 million shares changed hands, the highest level since Jan. 26, Reuters data showed.

SE Asia Stocks-Singapore pulls back; Indonesia near week high on inflows
Most Southeast Asian stock markets retreated, in line with Asia on Wednesday, with Singapore snapping a three-day rising streak after downbeat exports data in January, but foreign inflows helped bring Indonesian benchmark to a near one-week high.
Losses in the region were led by Singapore, with the key Straits Times Index .STI dropping 1.2 percent after a more
than 4 percent rally in three sessions to Tuesday.
Sentiment turned weak in part reflecting a larger-than-expected fall of 9.9 percent in non oil domestic exports in January while unfavourable earnings results weighed on shares such as United Overseas Bank UOBH.SI .
Indonesia's Jakarta composite index .JKSE posted a modest 0.4 percent gain to 4,765.50, the highest close since Feb. 11.
The overall stock market saw a net foreign buying worth 570 billion rupiah ($42.2 million), including a net purchase in shares of Astra International ASII.JK and Bank Rakyat Indonesia BBRI.JK .
Foreigners also bought Thai shares .SETI a net 2.9 billion baht ($81.41 million) and Malaysian stocks .KLSE a net 33 million ringgit ($7.8 million), while selling stocks in the Philippines .PSI a net 629 million peso ($13.21 million).
Asian shares slipped after two sessions of solid gains while oil prices swung higher as the market reconsidered the chances of a meaningful deal to restrict supply later in the year.
