Vietnam index ends at 1-month low, volumes jump

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   ended at its lowest close in a month on Friday on heavy volume, extending losses for the fifth straight session as some
exchange-traded funds  offloaded stocks during their portfolio review.  
The index fell 0.41 percent to close at 613.29, the lowest since Aug. 21. Volumes jumped 22.5 percent from the previous session to 218.23 million shares, well above the five-day average of 171.7 million shares, based on Reuters data.        
 "After a strong fall last week the index tends to gain, but the trend is still downward and more falls could be ahead," a Hanoi-based private trader dealing at Saigon Securities said.
The index, Southeast Asia's best performer this year, fell as much as 2 percent on Sept. 9 on profit-taking.   
The Market Vectors Vietnam   and db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam   restructured their portfolios this week, a move scheduled to end on Friday.
 In a note to clients, BIDV Securities advised investors to start buying late in the session on Friday to benefit from lower prices.
Baoviet Holdings , Vietnam's largest insurer, led the fall with a 6.32 percent drop.
Vietcombank  , Sacombank    and Military Bank   all lost ground, after the central bank said banks' bad debt rose to 4.11 percent of loans in July from the end of last year due to a slow economic recovery and tighter lending standard for small businesses.
