Vietnam's VN Index closed down 0.23 percent as weak manufacturing data from HSBC on Monday sparked concern among investors about the country's economic growth prospects, traders said.

Vietnam's Purchasing Managers' Index hit an 11-month low, with "marked downturns in output and new orders" in June, HSBC
said in a client note, citing its own data.
Banks and real estate firms led the fall with Vietcombank shares down 2.14 percent and VinGroup dropping 1.6 percent. Shares in the biggest company by capitalisation PetroVietnam Gas climbed 2.59 percent and Masan Group rose 2.81 percent to help to stem losses.
Traders expect more selling during this week if there was no better news on the health of the macro economy.

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Monday as risk-averse investors continued to worry over the stimulus cut in the United States and a slowdown
in China, while lower-than-expected inflation numbers hurt market sentiment in Indonesia.

Share markets saw light trading session as global uncertainties kept funds cautious of putting money in risky assets.
Indonesia and Vietnam each saw trading volume falling nearly half of a full day average over the past 30 sessions.
