Vietnam index advances 1.08 pct in low volume

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  ended up 1.08 percent on Monday, the second consecutive gain, with most big-cap shares rising on expectation of positive corporate earnings, but liquidity was low.  
Petrovietnam Gas  GAS.HM  advanced 1.6 percent, VietinBank  CTG.HM  rallied 3.14 percent and top dairy product maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM  gained 1.74 percent.
BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM , the country's largest insurer, outperformed the market with a 6.9-percent rise to the highest in more than three years on solid foreign buying.
The gain was due in part to the expectation that the government would remove the 49-percent foreign holdings restrictions in insurance companies.
The index extended earlier gains as investors expected good business results from listed firms in the second quarter, analysts said.
A total of 140.49 million shares changed hand on Monday, or a drop of 35.22 percent from the previous session.

SE Asia Stocks - Rise after Greece debt deal; Indonesia up before rate meeting

BANGKOK, July 13 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets rose in thin volume on Monday amid short-covering after euro zone leaders clinched a deal with Greece and Indonesia extended gains for a second day on hopes the central bank will keep policy rate steady.
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  ended up 0.7 percent, building on Friday's 0.4 percent gain. Banking shares were among the actively traded, led by Bank Mandiri  BMRI.JK  and Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK .
 Indonesia's central bank is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate  BIPG  unchanged at 7.5 percent at a policy meeting on Tuesday as it guards against inflation and potentially more weakness in the rupiah  IDR=ID .

 Indonesia's stock exchange saw trading volume fell to 73 percent of its 30-day average. Volumes on most other major exchanges in the region were only about two-thirds the average.
