Vietnam's VN index closed down 1.7 percent on Monday, with investors reluctant to trade after a period of foreign selling and concerns about increasing inflation, traders said.
Dairy maker Vinamilk lost 2.1 percent, state energy firm PetroVietnam Gas and property company Vingroup both fell 1.6 percent, followed by Hoang Anh Gia Lai, down 1 percent as most big caps lost.
"The most striking factor affecting the stock market was rising inflation," said Vu Thi Thu Trang, an analyst at Asia-Pacific Securities, adding that foreign investors' net selling in three consecutive sessions last week had dented confidence.
