Vietnam index ends down 1.4 in volatile trade         

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 1.42 percent on Thursday, the third fall this week, dragged by the losses of banks and energy stocks due in part to lower global oil prices.
The fall on Thursday, making Vietnam the sole one-day decliner in Southeast Asia, brought the market's combined loss this week to nearly 3 percent. 
PetroVietnam Gas  GAS.HM , the country's third-biggest firm by market value, dropped 3.99 percent following the fall of oil prices on a surprise build in U.S. inventory levels and a firm dollar.
Vietcombank  VCB.HM , Vietnam's top lender by capitalisation, fell 2.12 percent and top insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  lost 4.37 percent.  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Most recover on positive U.S. economic data

Southeast Asian stock markets, barring Vietnam, recovered from recent lows on Thursday on cautious buying following positive U.S. economic data and overnight gains on Wall Street, but concern over slowing growth in China dented sentiment.
Singapore  .FTSTI  closed 1 percent higher after posting a one-week closing low on Wednesday, Malaysia  .KLSE  rose 0.8 percent, and Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE   recovered from a one-week low hit in the previous session to close 0.7 percent higher.
Thailand  .SETI  ended up 0.8 percent to its highest closing level since Aug. 17, while the Philippine index  .PSI  gained 0.4 percent.  
Malaysia saw $48.09 million in net foreign fund outflow, while Indonesia and the Philippines witnessed $21.23 million and $19.29 million in net selling by foreign investors. Thailand also saw net foreign outflow of $45.95 million.
 On Wednesday, U.S payrolls processor ADP reported that private payrolls increased 190,000 last month. While that was below economists' expectations for a gain of 201,000 jobs, it was a step up from the 177,000 positions created in July.  
The U.S. Federal Reserve said on Wednesday labour markets were tight enough to fuel small wage gains in some professions in recent weeks, though some companies already were feeling the chill from an economic slowdown in China.
 Chinese markets were closed for a holiday, which also calmed the markets.  
 Bucking the trend, Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  closed down 1.4 percent, the third fall this week, dragged down by losses in banking and energy sector stocks, due in part to lower global oil prices.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
