Vietnam index eases at close, volume at 1-wk high
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended almost flat on Tuesday as falls in some big-caps erased gains in smaller shares while volume rose to the highest
level in a week amid solid money inflow.

Volume hit 109 million shares on Tuesday, the highest level since June 9, Reuters data showed.

SE Asia Stocks -Plantation stocks lift Malaysia, Indonesia
Shares in Malaysia and Indonesia eked out gains on Tuesday as stronger palm oil prices lifted plantation stocks while losses in Thailand's top telecoms
due to a suspension of an auction of fourth-generation mobile licences weighed on the broader market.
Kuala Lumpur's composite index ended up 0.2 percent, with shares of Sime Darby at their highest since June 5. Jakarta's composite index rose 0.5 percent, ending three days of losses, with shares of Astra Agro Lestari among gainers.
Malaysian palm oil futures stretched gains into a fourth session, lifted by firm crude oil prices and concerns that the onset of dry weather could curb palm yields.
Bangkok's SET index finished a tad lower, weighed by losses in shares of top mobile phone operator Advanced Info Service and no. 2 operator Total Access Communication .
Thailand's telecommunications regulator said that it has suspended temporarily an auction of 4G mobile licences as more time is needed to work out the details of the process, as well as to ensure transparency.
The Philippine main index fell for a third session, ending down 0.8 percent at its lowest level since May 30, as large caps, including Ayala Land and Philippine Long Distance Telephone , fell amid foreign outflows.
The Philippine bourse said foreign investors sold shares worth a net 314.6 million pesos ($7.17 million).
