Vietnam index up 0.15 pct ahead of Fed rate decision
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI edged up 0.15 percent on Wednesday amid caution ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's meeting, while an exchange-traded fund's portfolio adjustment sent some large-caps to mixed territories.
Analysts in Vietnam braced for the possibility of the first interest rate hike in the United States in almost a decade, which would send the VN Index down further. The index lost 9.1 percent in August and has been moving marginally so far this month.
BIDV BID.HM , Vietnam's biggest partly private lender by assets, dropped 6.67 percent after Market Vectors Vietnam ETF VNM.P , a major exchange-traded fund of Vietnamese shares, revoked its decision to add BID shares to its portfolio on Tuesday.
VNM ETF, however, said it would purchase more shares of Vietcombank VCB.HM , Vietnam's top lender by market value, and property firm HAGL HAG.HM . VCB advanced 3.04 percent and HAG climbed 4.08 percent at the close.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index .VNI at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Most up ahead of Fed decision; Thai banks up after cenbank keeps rates
Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Wednesday, with indexes in Singapore and Thailand snapping losing streaks, as world share markets rose ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's interest rate decision.
Banking shares jumped in the Thai stock market after the Bank of Thailand left its benchmark interest rate unchanged for a third straight meeting on Wednesday, as widely expected.
Shares of Bangkok Bank Pcl BBL.BK climbed 1.2 percent and Siam Commercial Bank Pcl SCB.BK hit a near three-week closing high, sending the key SET index .SETI 0.8 percent higher, its first gain in five trading days.
"The rate cut will depress banks' net interest margins. The decision to keep rate unchanged is positive for banks," said a bank analyst at broker Phillip Securities.
Singapore's Straits Times Index .FTSTI ended up 0.94 percent, recouping some of the losses over previous three days and reflecting short covering activities, according to broker NRA Capital.
Indexes in the Philippines .PSI and Vietnam .VNI both were little changed, while Indonesia's index .JKSE eased for a second day in line with a fall in the rupiah IDR=ID .
World share markets rose on Wednesday, albeit in thin volume, and short-term U.S. bond yields held near 4-1/2-year highs as investors braced for the possibility of the first interest rate hike in the United States in almost a decade.
Malaysia's stock market .KLSE was closed on Wednesday, reopening on Thursday.
