Vietnam's benchmark VN Index lost 0.18 percent to close at 493.62 on Monday on technical adjustment, extending its losses for the fourth
straight day, analysts said.
Shares of top insurer Baoviet Holdings fell 1.55 percent and PetroVietNam Gas <GAS.HM> , the country's biggest
listed firm, edged down 0.76 percent.
PetroVietNam shares have fallen in the last three sessions as investors were concerned about a possible increase in fuel
prices, analysts said.
"This fall won't take long as the index only edged down by a little in lighter trading volume, indicators of temporary
technical adjustment," said Nguyen Anh Tuan, a manager at FLC Securities.
The VN Index would reach a resistance level at 513 points within two weeks unless some negative news appears, Tuan added.

Most Southeast Asian stocks ended weaker on Monday, with foreign investors further selling shares in Malaysia and players trimming equities holdings in emerging markets amid the budget impasse in the U.S.
Trading volumes in Singapore and the Philippines were just a third of a full-day average over the past 30 sessions, while in Malaysia it was around half the average.
Malaysia's benchmark index ended down 0.06 percent after a rangebound session, with large-cap bank CIMB Group Holdings among the most actively traded.
The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors sold shares worth a net 44 million ringgit ($13.84 million), extending their net selling for a sixth straight session.
In Bangkok, selective buying in mid-cap shares such as TMB Bank Pcl helped the benchmark SET index recoup early losses, to edge up 0.14 percent.
TMB Bank shares jumped 5.7 percent, their biggest daily percentage gain in almost seven weeks, after a news report that Japanese Mizuho Financial Group planned to buy a stake in the Thai bank.
Foreign investors bought Thai shares worth a net 885 million baht ($28.31 million), adding to their net buying of almost 3 billion baht ($95.97 million) over the past two sessions, Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data showed.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index lost 0.18 percent on technical adjustment, extending its losses for the fourth straight day.
The Indonesian market is shut on Monday and Tuesday, and will resume on Wednesday. Markets in Malaysia, Singapore and the
Philippines will be shut on Tuesday.
