Sales pressure mounted in the morning session on July 2 while demand remained cautious, with the VN-Index slipping to 940 points. Demand was stronger in the afternoon and the Index found itself closer to 930.

By the close of the day it had fallen 13.63 points (1.42 per cent) to 947.15 points, with 62 stocks increasing and 237 losing ground. Trade reached 168.21 million shares worth VND4.08 trillion ($177.3 million), up 15 per cent in volume but down 2 per cent in value compared to last Friday.

Bottom-fishing helped some blue-chips recover, such as VNM, VCB, HDB, NVL and SAB, of which SAB increased 2 per cent to VND230,000 ($9.9). HPG, PLX, BHN also returned to their reference prices.

The HNX-Index lost 3.4 points (3.21 per cent), closing at 102.76 points with 50 stocks increasing and 110 falling. Trade reached 43.79 million shares worth VND710 billion ($30.9 million), up 53 per cent in volume and 67.6 per cent in value compared to last Friday.

The UPCoM-Index fluctuated throughout the afternoon session and closed lower than it did in the morning, losing 1.14 points (2.18 per cent) for the day, down 50.84 points with 37 stocks increasing and 115 losing ground.
