Vietnam index posts biggest fall in 2 months

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 1.29 percent on Tuesday, posting its biggest
drop since Jan. 21, with most blue chips heading south in a technical correction amid downbeat oil prices.
Energy stocks led the decliners, with PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  dropping 3.76 percent and PetroVietnam Drill & Well Service Corp  PVD.HM  easing nearly 4 percent after oil prices fell on rising concerns over a rally petering out.  O/R  
Losers outnumbered gainers by more than two to one while as many as 165.1 million shares changed hands, well above the 5-day average of 152.4 million.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Malaysia outperforms amid foreign inflows

Southeast Asian stock markets ended mixed on Tuesday as investors turned cautious after sluggish
U.S. consumer spending data suggested the Fed may opt for caution on rate hikes this year.  
Malaysia  .KLSE  outperformed other markets in the region with a gain of 0.7 percent amid net foreign inflows worth $77.21 million.
Thailand  .SETI  rose 0.3 percent amid net foreign inflows worth $20.28 million, while the Jakarta composite index  .JKSE   recovered from a near one-month low to end 0.2 percent higher.  
Investors waited for cues from Fed Chair Janet Yellen's speech later in the day after a report from the U.S. Commerce
Department on Monday showed consumer spending in January was not as strong as previously reported.  
That, together with other data showing a widening in the goods trade deficit in February, indicated economic growth
remained sluggish in the first quarter.  

Yellen will speak on the U.S. economic outlook and monetary policy on Tuesday. A few other Fed policymakers are also due to speak on the same day, making the Fed's policy the biggest focus for now.  
Singapore  .STI  fell 0.4 percent, while the Philippines  .PSI  closed 0.8 percent weaker. Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 1.3 percent, posting its biggest drop since Jan. 21, with most blue chips heading south in a technical correction amid downbeat oil prices.
