Several stocks that climbed in the previous days fell, with food processor Masan Group down 2.6 percent, insurer Bao Viet Holdings losing 3.7 percent and shares of the bourse's biggest listed broker Sai Gon Securities down 4.5 percent.
Energy firm PetroVietnam Gas decreased 0.8 percent, followed by another PetroVietnam unit, PetroVietnam Fertilizer, finished down 0.7 percent.
The falls were due to a technical adjustment as fluctuations were in a narrow range, according to one trader.
