Vietnam index hits 3-wk low after Fed meeting minute

Vietnam benchmark VN Index  .VNI  lost 0.24 percent to end Thursday's session at the lowest level in around three weeks as investors took money off the table after the U.S. Federal Reserve meeting minutes.
 Federal Reserve officials on Wednesday continued to flag December as a likely time for interest rates to rise in minutes from an October meeting released on Wednesday, but their tone indicated a smooth pace of tightening thereafter.  
Most blue chips either dropped or stayed flat. Dairy products maker Vinamilk  VNM.HM , the country's top firm by market value, fell 1.52 percent while PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM  stood unchanged.
The index closed at 601.9 points, the lowest since Oct. 28, while 122.7 million shares changed hand, far below the five-day average of 142.8 million, Reuters data showed.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close .

SE Asia Stocks-Singapore leads regional rebound; energy shares up with oil prices

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly rebounded in light trading volumes on Thursday on bargain hunting in battered large caps as investors in emerging markets braced for a possible U.S. Fed rate lift-off in December.
Singapore outperformed with the Straits Times Index  .STI  up 1.2 percent after Wednesday's slide to a more than six-week closing low. The most actively traded DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  rose 1 percent, recouping most of Wednesday's losses.
 Indexes in Thailand  .SETI , Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  all recovered from the weakness in the previous session  while Vietnam  .VNI  retreated after early gains. 
A rebound in global oil prices helped lure buyers of energy shares. Top gainers in the region included Thailand's PTT  PTT.BK , Indonesia's Perusahaan Gas Negara  PGAS.JK  and Malaysia's Petronas Dagangan  PETR.KL .
Trading volumes remained weak for most exchanges which were in the range of 70-80 percent of the 30-day average, suggesting limited share rallies in the near term, according to brokers.
Asian shares jumped after minutes of the previous U.S. Federal Open Market Committee hinted at tightening at the December meeting. 
The stock market in the Philippines  .PSI  remained closed for a second day as Manila hosts a summit of the Asia Pacific Economic cooperation (APEC) forum.
