Vietnam shares ease after Paris attacks

HANOI, Nov 16 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index
 ended down 0.34 percent in robust trade on Monday,
following weaknesses in global markets after Friday's attacks in
Paris.
    Banks led the falls, with Vietcombank, Vietnam's
second top firm by market value, down 0.84 percent to its lowest
close since Oct. 29, while VietinBank lost 1.46 percent
and BIDV, the nation's biggest listed bank by assets,
fell 0.84 percent.
    As many as 137.78 million shares changed hand, compared with
the five-day average of 131.27 million, Thomson Reuters data
showed.
    Analysts said the index is likely to retreat further in the
absence of any positive near-term catalysts.
    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at the close (0801
GMT).
