Vietnam index edges up; oil price gain boosts energy stocks
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended slightly higher after a robust session on Friday, led by energy stocks which got a boost from the recovery in oil prices.
PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM jumped 6.67 percent and PetroVietnam Drilling & Well Service Corp PVD.HM soared 6.56 percent after oil prices rose 5 percent on Friday, due to cold weather in the U.S. and Europe as well as firmer financial markets.
As many as 169.04 million shares changed hands, the highest level since Dec. 18.
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer last year, has lost a combined 3.8 percent this week, up from a 3 percent decline a weak before.

SE Asia Stocks-Snap losing streaks as oil prices rebound
Southeast Asian stock markets snapped a two-day losing streak on Friday, in line with Asia, with the Philippines recovering from an oversold zone and banking shares climbing in Malaysia after a central bank move to boost liquidity in the system.
Hints of more monetary policy support by the European Central Bank and a rally in crude oil from 12-year lows lifted Asia, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS posting its first gain in three days.
Stocks in the Philippines led the region's rebound, with the Philippine composite index .PSI up 2 percent. Its 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) was at 33.8 at the close, bouncing off an oversold territory of below 30 on Thursday.
It dropped 3.7 percent on the week, among market laggards, along with Vietnam's 3.8 percent weekly decline.
In Kuala Lumpur, banking shares rose on optimism about liquidity outlook. Shares of CIMB Group Holdings CIMB.KL were among outperformers with a 4.6 percent gain.
Malaysia's central bank unexpectedly cut the statutory reserve requirement ratio (SRR) to 3.5 percent effective Feb. 1 to add more liquidity into the banking system. The announcement came after market hours on Thursday.
The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors bought shares for the first time in twelve days worth a net 117 million ringgit ($27.25 million). The market will be closed on Monday for a public holiday, reopening on Tuesday.
Most markets in the region extended losses for a third week amid a wave of risk aversion and plunge in oil prices.
