SE Asia Stocks-Most up; Vietnam outperforms

Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, with Vietnam closing at a more than two-month high, led by banks, while investors cautiously awaited the result of a meeting of the European Central Bank.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed up 0.8 percent, posting its biggest percentage gain in two weeks, after falling for two straight sessions, with banks leading the gainers. The index closed at its highest level since Aug. 12.  
Five of the country's six listed banks advanced, with Vietcombank  VCB.HM  gaining 1.32 percent and lender BIDV  BID.HM  edging up 0.42 percent.
But Indonesia  .JKSE  fell 0.5 percent with a foreign outflow of $25.23 million, which analyst attributed to a correction after five days of gains, while Malaysia  .KLSE   edged down 0.1 percent.  
"We are waiting for Q3 financial statements to be released at the end of this month," said The Fei Ming, head of institutional equity sales at Jakarta-based Ciptadana Securities.
Many investors awaited for some cues from the ECB meeting, where it is likely to keep the door open for more monetary stimulus in the face of deflation risks, but stop short of taking new policy steps.

Asian shares resumed their decline after paring early losses on Thursday after a sharp fall in mainland Chinese shares on Wednesday rekindled worries about the health of China's economy.
