The HNX30-Index was the only main index on Vietnam’s stock market to gain ground on August 10.

On HSX, the VN-Index fell 0.23 points (0.03 per cent) and the VN30-Index 2.06 points (0.28 per cent).

On HNX, the HNX-Index lost 0.10 points (0.10 per cent) while the HNX30-Index increased 0.11 points (0.06 per cent) and the UPCoM-Index lost 0.31 points (0.57 per cent).

Liquidity on HSX reached VND2.99 trillion (VND131.56 million) and on HNX was VND559.2 billion ($24.6 million).

On HSX, there were 123 stock codes increasing and 157 decreasing, while on HNX, 82 increased and 102 fell.

The VN-Index opened at 773.66 points and rose to its peak of the day of 776.5 points then fluctuated and closed the morning at 773.8 points. It increased slightly in the afternoon session before falling to its bottom of the day of 770 points and then closed at 773.43 points.

Foreign investors net bought on HSX by VND45.15 billion ($1.98 million) and net sold on HNX by VND8.46 billion ($372,240).

“770 points is quite sustainable as the VN-Index touched the mark twice. Low liquidity shows that investors took note of the VN-Index falling yesterday. Tomorrow, the index will fluctuate and may close in light green. There are opportunities for investors to buy good shares at reasonable prices. Notable shares include BFC, CVT, DHG, HBC, SSI, and MBB.”
