Vietnam index ends down 0.7 pct, banks lead
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed down 0.7 percent on Tuesday in robust trade after three straight gains, with most shares heading south led by banks.
Decliners outnumbered gainers by two to one, with five of the country's six listed banks dropping. Vietcombank VCB.HM , Vietnam's second-biggest firm by market value, fell 1.3 percent while lender BIDV BID.HM lost 2.04 percent.
As many as 127.21 million shares changed hand, well above the five-day average of 93.79 million.
But analysts said the market's trend remained positive. The index, Southeast Asia's best performer this year, has gained nearly 9 percent since the start of 2015.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Malaysia falls on financials, outflows
Southeast Asian markets ended mixed on Tuesday, with Malaysia's key index closing at its lowest level in 1-1/2 weeks as China's soft growth data hurt commodity prices and dampened risk sentiment.
Malaysia .KLSE fell 0.8 percent to 1,705.03, its lowest close since Oct. 8, with $12.92 million foreign outflow.
The fall was led by financial shares such as CIMB Group Holdings CIMB.KL and Public Bank PUBM.KL , which fell 3.4 percent and 0.5 percent, respectively.
China's September-quarter growth data was its weakest since the global financial crisis, though it was still better than market expectations.
However, analysts said, the data was worrying for commodities and it could derail the expected demand for commodities in the December quarter.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed down 0.7 percent led by banks in robust trade after three straight day of gains, while Singapore lost 0.2 percent.
Bucking the trend, Indonesia .JKSE edged up 0.4 percent, while Thailand .SETI and Philippines .PSI each ended 0.1 percent firmer.
Thailand saw a net $11.89 million worth of foreign buying in shares.
