Vietnam index ends down 0.2 pct
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended down 0.2 percent on Friday, driven lower late in the session by losses for most big caps, led by banks and energy.
The top equities by market capitalisation finished down, with PetroVietnam Gas GAS.HM losing 0.4 percent and Vinamilk VNM.HM down 1 percent. Sacombank STD.HM , Military Bank
MBB.HM , Eximbank EIB.HM , and Vietinbank CTG.HM all finished lower.
The fall came despite news that minister of the 12 countries now thrashing out a Pacific trade pact, which includes Vietnam, would extend talks in Atlanta in a push for a final agreement on
a deal that would cover 40 percent of global GDP.
Below is a snapshot of the VN index .VNI at the close.

SE Asia Stocks-Mostly lower on growth concerns; US non-farm data eyed
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended slightly weaker on Friday as investors continued dumping emerging market assets amid a grim growth outlook ahead of U.S. nonfarm payrolls data, due later in the day.
If the widely-watched U.S. nonfarm payrolls data is strong, analysts expect it may signal the Federal Reserve to raise rates soon.
Many investors are still braced for the next downward move due to a possible Fed rate hike.
The final Caixin/Markit China Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for September was slightly down from August but was a touch higher than a preliminary reading, a survey released on Thursday showed.
Singapore-based Net Research Asia said the weak number had some guessing whether the Chinese government would announce any stimulus measures during its week-long holiday.
