Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed down 2.06 percent on Monday after investors took profits from stocks that were beaten-down and had climbed in the past two sessions, analysts said.
Shares in all 30 of the biggest companies by capitalisation on the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange VN30 fell, led by commercial banks, with Eximbank slumping 3.5 percent, Vietcombank  <VCB.HM>  3.27 percent and Vietinbank down 1.2 percent.

Liquidity was high, with trading volume at 54.9 million shares, greater than the five-day average of 49.5 million.

Southeast Asian stocks made strong gains on Monday, led by Thailand and Indonesia, on China's upbeat export data and hopes that the U.S. central bank would delay, or  be less aggressive in, tapering its monthly bond purchases.  

Thailand's main stock index jumped 3.6 percent, its  highest daily gain since July 11, to hit a three-week closing high, led by banks.  

Jakarta's Composite Index  recorded its highest gain since June 28, rising 2.9 percent to its peak since Aug. 30, also helped by Indonesia's financials.

Regional share markets staged a mild rebound last week following a plunge in August amid rising risk aversion and concerns about a potential cut in monetary stimulus in the United States.

However, disappointing U.S. job data has sparked views that the Fed could cut its stimulus by less than what was anticipated.  

Singapore's Straits Times index also jumped 1.3 percent to a two-week high, led by banks. DBS Group shares gained 2.3 percent, United Overseas Bank  <UOBH.SI>  was up 1.9 percent and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  rose 1.2 percent.

Stock indices in Malaysia  gained 1.4 percent to a three-week high and the Philippines rose 0.4 percent.   
Vietnam's main stock index  bucked the trend to fall 2.1 percent on profit taking in blue-chip firms.
