Vietnam index jumps most in nearly 1 mth on trade talks
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed 1.37 percent higher on Monday, advancing the most since Sept. 8, as investors expected a mega trade agreement to conclude soon.
Upbeat sentiment boosted prices of around half of the total stocks, with dairy product maker Vinamilk VNM.HM leading the gainers to rise 3 percent and close at its highest since Aug.
Seafood and textile shares advanced, with fisheries producer and exporter Hung Vuong Corp HVG.HM rising 4.82 percent to a near seven-week closing high as experts said the sectors would benefit largely once the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement is sealed.
Analysts said the VN Index is poised for more gains should the Atlanta TPP meetings conclude on good terms after five days of talks.
Following is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close .

SE Asia Stocks -Rise with Asia, Indonesia set for best gains in nearly 6 weeks
Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Monday as hopes that the current low U.S. interest rates would carry over into next year lifted sentiment across Asia, with the Indonesian benchmark heading for its best gain in almost six weeks.
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE was up 2.7 percent, on track for the biggest single day rise since Aug. 27. Buying led by foreign investors helped shares of battered banks recoup some of their recent losses, led by Bank Rakyat Indonesia BBRI.JK .
Financial shares .JKFINA were among the sectors hit last month when the Indonesian stock market suffered net foreign outflows for a fifth straight month, worth about 7.2 trillion rupiah ($493.35 million).
Singapore's key Straits Times Index .STI climbed 1.4 percent to the highest in more than a week.
"Some bargain hunting is likely as shares of banks, telcos and property issues have fallen to multi-year lows," broker NRA Capital said in a report.
Indexes in Malaysia .KLSE , the Philippines .PSI and Vietnam .VNI all rebounded after falling on Friday while the Thai key SET index .SETI gained almost 1 percent after eking out small gains on the previous trading day.
Broker Krungsri Securities in Bangkok said it expected any market rise to be small as investors awaited quarterly financial results of listed firms due out in coming weeks.
"We see limited immediate upside as investors remain cautious about third-quarter earnings, which should slow with the overall economy," said the broker in a report.
Asian stocks rose on Monday after the prospect of an imminent interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve faded after Friday's weaker-than-expected U.S. employment data.
