All main indexes on Vietnam’s stock market finished in negative territory on August 8.

Liquidity on HSX reached VND3.7 trillion ($162.7 million), 2 per cent higher than yesterday, and on HNX was VND602 billion ($26.4 million), 25.6 per cent lower.

There were 103 shares increasing on HSX while 181 fell, and 90 increased on HNX while 115 fell.

The VN-Index opened at 792.98 points and eased slightly before reaching its peak of the day of 796.5 points. It then slipped to 793.1 points at the close of the morning session. In the afternoon, it continued to fall sharply, hitting its bottom of the day of 789.9 points before recovering slightly and closing at 791.57 points.

In banking, VCB increased 0.9 per cent and BID 0.4 per cent while STB lost 2.8 per cent, MBB 1.7 per cent, and CTG 1.5 per cent.

The Top 5 shares seeing the highest trading volume on HSX were HQC, OGC, FLC, FIT, and ASM. The Top 5 in terms of increases were UDC, by 7 per cent, HID 6.99 per cent, VOS 6.97 per cent, BIS 6.96 per cent, and TDG 6.91 per cent.

Foreign investors net bought by a total of VND122.48 billion ($5.38 million).

“The VN-Index increased in the morning session but, surprisingly, fell in the afternoon session, dipping under 790 points at times. Thanks to the pillars of PLX, SAB, and VCB, however, it only fell slightly over the course of the day. It will retest 790 points tomorrow. Investors should hold shares and restrict short-term transactions.”
