Vietnam index edges down 0.2 pct in mixed trade

HANOI, March 9 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index
 dipped 0.17 percent at the break on Wednesday, with
losses in energy stocks more than offseting gains in property
shares.
    PetroVietnam Gas dropped 1.87 percent after oil
prices edged down on concerns over slowing demand and a
strengthening U.S. dollar. 
    Shares of real-estate firms rallied after local media
reported that new rules would not limit loans to Vietnam's
property market. Property giant Vingroup advanced 0.43
percent. 
    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at midday (0431
GMT).
