Vietnam index eases 0.1 pct, foreigners sell

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   edged down 0.06 percent at the close on Wednesday in a mixed trade session and amid net offload by overseas investors.
Hanoi-based Vietcombank , Vietnam's biggest lender by market value, led the decliners with a 2.04-percent loss, while PetroVietNam Gas   cushioned the falls to tick up 1.6 percent.
Foreign investors returned as net sellers on Wednesday, selling a net 105 billion dong ($4.82 million) worth of Vietnamese equities, while the total volume fell 17.6 percent from the previous session to 133.5 million shares.

Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close .

SE Asia Stocks-Most rebound despite foreign fund outflows

Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed higher on Wednesday on bargain hunting despite selling by foreign investors, but concerns over an early U.S. rate hike and uncertainty about Greece's debt talks limited gains.  
 Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index   ended up 0.7 percent after hitting a more than 11-month low in the previous session and Singapore  <.FTSTI>  finished 0.9 percent higher, rebounding from the previous session's five-month closing low.  
Selling by foreign investors continued on Wednesday as well with Jakarta seeing net foreign fund outflow of $37.61 million, while it was $49.24 million for Malaysia and $20.19 million in
the Philippines. Thailand saw net foreign selling of $35.46 million.
 U.S. job openings surged to a record high in April, suggesting the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates sooner than expected as the world's largest economy regained speed, while lingering Greek debt fears continued to add volatility to the market.  
 A depreciation in Asian currencies has also weighed on risky assets, mainly in Indonesia, where the rupiah   has fallen around 7.5 percent this year until Tuesday's close.   
 The Thai share index   closed 0.8 percent higher as Bank of Thailand (BoT) held benchmark interest rates steady after two surprise cuts.  
Thailand's large-caps recovered after MSCI's decision to delay the inclusion of China 'A' shares in one of its global benchmarks.  
Malaysia   and Philippines   rebounded from the previous session's five-month lows to close 0.4 percent and 0.8 percent higher, respectively.  
Bucking the regional trend, Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   was down 0.1 percent, led by a fall in bank shares.     

 Market                     Current         Prev Close        Pct Move
 Singapore               3325.77             3295.13             +0.93
