Vietnam index dips 0.3 pct, more falls expected
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed down 0.34 percent on Monday after a slight rebound late last week, and more falls could be ahead while many emerging markets were concerned over a Federal Reserve rate rise, traders said.

SE Asia Stocks -Fall amid outflows; Indonesia leads decline
Southeast Asian stock markets retreated on Monday amid a fall in regional currencies and fund outflows, with Indonesian benchmark suffering the worst drop in two weeks and stocks in Malaysia hitting a near two-week closing low.
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE was down 2.6 percent, the biggest single-day loss since Aug. 24 as the Indonesian rupiah IDR= fell to its weakest since July 1998.
Investors remained wary of the outlook of Southeast Asia's biggest economy, brokers said. Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 489 billion rupiah ($34.3 million) on the day, according to Thomson Reuters data.
"Apart from the IDR weakness, the market is still trying to deal with slower-than-expected growth," said Harry Su, head of strategy and research at broker Bahana Securities in Jakarta.
Indonesia's central bank late last month predicted the country's gross domestic product to grow by 4.89 percent in 2015, and by 5.54 percent next year.
Malaysia's key index .KLSE was down 0.4 percent at 1,582.85, the lowest close since Aug. 26 as the ringgit MYR= plumbed 17-year lows.
The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors offloaded shares worth a net 281 million ringgit ($64.9 million).
Data showed outflows of Philippine stocks .PSI worth a net 217.9 million peso ($4.6 million), with Thai stocks .SETI a net 1.9 billion baht ($52.7 million).
In Vietnam, the key index .VNI eased 0.3 percent after rising 0.5 percent on Friday.
