Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed down 0.6 percent on Monday, extending losses for a fourth successive trading day as investors opted out in low liquidity, traders said.

Thai stocks dropped 2.6 percent on Monday, joining the slump in Indonesia and the Philippines, as investors sold emerging market
equities after strong U.S. jobs data heightened concerns about the Federal Reserve's stimulus cut.
The selloff, spurred by the prospect of tighter global liquidity and rising risk aversion, helped derail the rallying
markets this year.
Indonesia saw its year-to-date gain falling to 2.7 percent, with Thailand's year-to-date gain down at 0.9 percent.
