Vietnam index drops 0.6 pct, volume at two-week high

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  declined 0.63 percent at the close on Tuesday, with most blue-chip shares losing ground, having erased slight gains in early trade, while volume rose to a two-week high.
Decliners outnumbered advancers by nearly two to one, led by top insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  with a 3.7-percent loss and steel firm Hoa Phat Group  HPG.HM  that declined 3.65 percent after two consecutive gains.  
 Confectionery firm Kinh Do Corp  KDC.HM  bucked the trend, jumping 6.09 percent to end at 50,500 dong ($2.31) each, above a six-month high. The company said on Monday it would pay the 2015 dividend by cash of 20,000 dong/share on Aug. 21.
As many as 155 million shares changed hand, the highest level since July 14, Thomson Reuters data show.   
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Fall; Indonesia hits 16-month low

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday as investors lowered risk exposure ahead of a U.S. central bank meeting and amid instability in China's stock markets, with the Indonesian index hitting a 16-month low in line with a fall in the rupiah.
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  was down 1.2 percent at  4,714.76, its lowest level since late March 2014. Foreign-led selling hit banking shares. Bank Rakyat Indonesia  BBRI.JK  and Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  fell more than 3 percent each.
 The rupiah  IDR=ID  was down more than 8 percent year-to-date, among the underperformers in emerging Asia.
Markets in the region came under selling pressure as local currencies weakened, with Malaysia  .KLSE  and Thailand  .SETI  among the underperformers in Asia so far this year.
The Thai SET index eased 0.3 percent to its lowest closing level since May 2014.  
Thai shares remained technically weak in the near term. Broker SCB Securities saw the SET's next stop for a rebound at 1,402, and then 1,375. The broker said it was still bearish although the index looked the most oversold in the region.
SCB said it could not offer any "new fundamental" reason for buying the Thai market in the long term.
Energy-related shares fell across exchanges as global oil prices fell further.  O/R  
 Singapore's Golden Agri Resources  GAGR.SI  dropped 5.6 percent, Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur Kepong  KLKK.KL  fell 2.4 percent while refiner Thai Oil  TOP.BK  eased 2.0 percent.
Investor sentiment in Asia remained cautious ahead of a two-day U.S. Federal Reserve meeting beginning later on Tuesday where some investors believe it will make its case for hiking rates as early as September.
