Vietnam index ends down 1 pct, rebound expected

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   fell 1.05 percent at the close on Tuesday, due to a drop by top firm by market value Petrovietnam Gas  and some banking shares.
 Nearly half of the index fell, with Petrovietnam Gas down 2.31 percent followed by a 1.77 percent loss for Hanoi-based Vietcombank  <VCB.HM> , the country's biggest lender by capitalisation.
 "Selling is strong, but buying is also very solid," said deputy manager Nguyen Thanh Lam of Maybank Kim Eng Securities, adding the market could climb back soon if foreign investors stepped-up buying.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Most up in light volume ahead of Fed meeting

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose in light trading on Tuesday, with oversold Indonesian shares regaining some recent lost ground amid
foreign-led buying, but the regional risk appetite remained weak  before a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting.
 Indonesia's key index  ended the day up 0.7 percent  at 4,872.60 after Monday's slide to the lowest close in 13  months. Its 14-day Relative Strength Index was at 26.8 at the  close, still in the oversold territory of 30 or below.
 Foreign investors bought shares worth a net 200 billion rupiah ($14.98 million) after net selling in nearly every session this month, Thomson Reuters data showed.  
 Indexes in Malaysia   and Thailand  closed a tad higher while the Philippines index   notched up a 0.7 percent gain.
Stocks in Singapore   and Vietnam   finished lower while Asian stocks slipped before a two-day policy meeting of the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary committee starting later in the day.  
Trading volumes in most Southeast Asian exchanges were mostly below a 30-day average as concerns about a possible U.S. interest rate hike sooner than expected kept investors on the sidelines.
