Vietnam index nearly flat, most big caps lose

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  stood nearly flat, closing down 0.04 percent on Wednesday, with most blue chips losing ground led by Vingroup VIC.HM  and PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM .
Top property firm Vingroup dropped 1.18 percent to over a two-week low, and PetroVietnam Gas also lost 0.43 percent following a fall of oil prices after industry data showed a larger-than-expected build in U.S. crude inventories last week.

Insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  extended its gain to the second straight session, advancing 1.79 percent.

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly firmer; Indonesia up on palm oil shares, inflow

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday, with Indonesia hitting a more than two-month high, helped by palm oil shares and inflows, but sentiment was slightly dented as China's benchmark indexes posted their worst daily performance in five weeks.  .SS  
Some investors awaited clues from the European Central Bank's policy meeting scheduled later in the week, while the slow pace of growth in Japan's exports due to weakness in China also hit investor sentiment.  
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  ended 0.4 percent higher after touching its highest level since Aug. 11 in early trade.

Jakarta saw a net foreign inflow of $27.24 million.
The stock index got a boost as a rise in crude palm oil prices to 2-week highs sent shares of plantation firms soaring.

PT Astra Agro Lestari  AALI.JK  and PT London Sumatra Indonesia Tbk  LSIP.JK  rose 5.8 percent and 9.6 percent, respectively.
Thai shares  .SETI  closed 0.2 percent weaker, but energy shares were firmer, led by a 2.1 percent rise in PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK .
