Vietnam index dips 0.3 pct on worries of dollar gain

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed 0.28 percent lower on Wednesday as rising dollar sparked investors' concerns, with most blue-chips falling despite a generally mixed trade session.
Dairy product maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM  closed down 1.49 percent, marking a second straight loss since Monday when it hit a record high close, having earned a combined 37-percent in more than a month on a state divestment plan.
 Investors became more cautious as the Vietnamese dong  VND=VN  fell against the dollar, which could hurt Vietnam's exports-driven economy and devalue Vietnamese equities against global assets, analysts said.
The U.S. currency rose to the highest against the dong since Oct. 6 on the interbank market while the unofficial market rate neared a three-month high on Wednesday.

 The benchmark index lost a combined 1.3 percent so far this week, worse that last week's easing of 0.2 percen.
                 VN Index      603.34

SE Asia Stocks-Lower with weak global markets; Indonesia falls back

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Wednesday in line with global equities, with key indexes in Singapore and Thailand hitting over six-week closing lows, but Indonesia's loosening of bank reserve requirement bolstered selective buying.  

Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  gave up early gains, ending the day 0.07 percent lower.
 Select banks rose after deputy central bank Governor Mirza Adityaswara said on Tuesday the cut in statutory reserve requirements by Bank Indonesia will provide financial institutions with 18 trillion rupiah ($1.30 billion) more in liquidity.  
The move appeared to be an encouraging sign for loan growth outlook, according to analysts.
 Among actively traded, Bank Rakyat Indonesia  BBRI.JK  and Bank Negara Indonesia  BBNI.JK  each rose about 0.5 percent.     

Singapore's index  .STI  slipped 1.1 percent to its lowest close since Oct. 5 while Thai SET index  SETI  shed nearly 1 percent to the lowest close since Oct. 6, with volumes of both well below a 30-day average and similar to most in the region.
Stocks in Malaysia  .KLSE  reversed the gains on Tuesday while Vietnam  .VNI  fell for a third day.  
The Philippine stock market  .PSI  was closed on Wednesday and Thursday as Manila hosts a summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.
