Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  ended up 0.4 percent on Monday, with most blue chips advancing, led by energy and real estate firms.

Shares of PetroVietNam Gas, the country's biggest listed firm by capitalisation, rose 0.77 percent to 65,500 dong ($3.11) each.

Real estate firm Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp edged up 1.82 percent, Vingroup  climbed 0.81 percent and top insurer Baoviet Holdings   gained 0.85 percent.

The index would stay around 480 points this week, and the daily volume could range at 30 million to 40 million shares, analyst Phan Dung Khanh at Maybank Kim Eng Securities said, below a daily average of nearly 44 million shares so far this month.

    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Thai stocks suffered their worst drop in more than three months on Monday as investors, including domestic institutions, locked in quick gains in telecoms and banking stocks, while most others in Southeast Asia posted slight losses.  
The Thai SET index ended down 3.4 percent, its biggest percentage loss in a single day since June 11, breaking below the key 1,500 mark to a one-week closing low.  

Brisk selling was seen in Shin Corporation Pcl, True Corporation Pcl and Siam Commercial Bank Pcl, which were among last week's outperformers.
The sell-off came after the index's 6.1 percent rally last week which prompted profit taking by domestic funds and so-called trigger funds, which are redeemed when the index hits a target level, traders said.
A bout of selling hit recent gainers across the region such as Singapore's DBS Group Holdings, Malaysia's CIMB Group Holdings and Philippine Long Distance Telephone.
In Kuala Lumpur, local institutions sold shares worth a net 157 million ringgit ($49.61 million) while foreign investors bought shares worth a net 120 million ringgit ($37.92 million), stock exchange data showed.
