The first trading day of December was fairly positive, with money flowing in and help indexes head upwards. At the close of trade, the VN-Index had increased 25.05 points (2.7 per cent) to 951.59 points, the HNX-Index 2.81 points (2.69 per cent) to 107.64 points, and the UPCoM-Index 0.7 points (1.34 per cent) to 53.06 points.

Foreigners were net buyers, by VND147 billion ($6.3 million). They net bought on HSX and UPCoM while net-selling on HNX.

Market liquidity improved significantly, with a matching order value of VND4.7 trillion ($201.7 million).

Increases were spread across the market, with 394 stock codes gaining compared to 160 decliners. Seafood struggled, however, with VHC being sold aggressively and falling VND3,000 ($0.12) to VND99,000 ($4.24).

Oil and gas performed well, with gainers including GAS, PVS, PVD, PVB, PVT, and BSR. BSR increased 3.4 per cent to VND15,200 ($0.65) on nearly 2.9 million units; given a boost by good results for January-November.

Banking stocks again led the market, with gainers including VCB, up 4.7 per cent, TCB 4.4 per cent, CTG 5 per cent, MBB 2.8 per cent, VPB 6 per cent, and STB 5.3 per cent.
