Vietnam index closes up 0.6 pct; energy, property firm lead

Vietnam's benchmark VN index closed up 0.6 percent in thin trade on Tuesday, but many investors stayed on the sidelines in anticipation of a rejig of
portfolios and a bout of foreign selling ahead, traders said.
Energy firms led the climb, with Pha Lai Thermal Power gaining 3.3 percent and PetroVietnam Gas up  1.7 percent. Real estate companies also rose, with Vingroup
gaining 1.6 percent and Hoang Anh Gia Lai edging up 0.5 percent.

Coffee company Vinacafe Bien Hoa was the biggest loser among the big caps, slumping 2.4 percent.

With liquidity low, the gain in the market was seen as short-lived and traders expect the recent downward trend to

Thai stocks closed lower after a bout of late selling on Tuesday, with most other markets in Southeast Asia posting modest gains as investors sought bargains
among battered emerging equities with sentiment buoyed by gains in Asia.  
Trade was largely light across the region, with volumes in Indonesia and Thailand falling to around 70 percent of a
full-day average over the past 30 sessions ahead of interest rate reviews by policy makers this week.
