Vietnam index eases 0.2 pct on profit-taking
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended down 0.18 percent on Friday as investors snapped quick profits from recent gainers despite extended buying into property shares.
The real estate sector has been attracting funds as investors are betting on good earnings, based on higher property credit and reports on stronger sales of apartments, said Pham Van Khoa, an analyst with VN DIRECT Securities.
Loans in the banking system surged last month, with credit growth for property outperforming the broader market at 10 percent, the central bank governor has said.
Real estate firm Vingroup , the country's biggest in the sector, jumped 2.04 percent, while property companies Tan Tao Investment and Industry and FLC Group topped the trading volume on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange at 15 million and 12 million shares respectively.
But losses in some of the large-caps kept the index from a third straight gain, led by PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's biggest firm by value, that fell 1.85 percent and dairy product maker Vinamilk was lower 0.93 percent.
The index may correct further on profit-taking near the resistance level of 615 points, which it hit in early trade before retreating to close at 611.55, Khoa added.
Volume was solid, with 190 million shares changing hands compared with the five-day average level of 167 million, Reuters data showed.

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia at 3-month low amid political concerns
Indonesia's key index hit a three-month closing low on Friday, suffering the worst weekly loss since March amid political concerns while most other
Southeast Asian stock markets eked out gains ahead of a key U.S. jobs report.
Foreign investors sold financials and large caps such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia and Bank Mandiri, bringing Jakarta's composite index <.JKSE> 1 percent lower at 4,949.35, the lowest close since July 4.
News that Indonesia's opposition coalition had won the position of the speaker of the legislature raised concerns that President-elect Joko Widodo may not be able to muster enough support in parliament to push through badly-needed reforms.
The benchmark posted a weekly loss of 3.6 percent, the biggest since the week ended March 21 and the worst performer in the region.
Most others fell on the week, with Thai stocks sliding 1.9 percent after two straight weeks of gains, Singapore ending down 1.2 percent on the week, its third, and the Philippines extended loss for a second week, down 0.2 percent.
