The VN Index rose by 13.7 points to 899.92 points. The VN30 index increased by 12.05 points to 838.52 points.

The total trading value on the HCM City bourse reached VND8.4 trillion with 572 million shares trade, a 3-year high.

Meanwhile, according to Zingnews, foreign investors had a net purchase of VND250 billion worth of stocks on June 8.

Observers noted that more investors have joined the market in recent days. The Vietnam Securities Depository Center (VSD) reported that there had been 2.473 million domestic transaction accounts as of May 31, mostly belonging to individual investors.

Around 529 shares saw prices increasing this trading session on the three bourses (HOSE, HNX and UpCom) which account for 60 percent of listed shares.

 


Military Bank Securities commented that the high liquidity seen in gaining sessions showed the investors’ high expectations on the continued recovery of the market.

It believes that the VN Index may exceed the 900 point threshold, and the strong cash flow into the market serves as the main engine to help the market conquer the 920 point threshold.

The current factors are supporting VN Index rise. The two most positive factors are Vietnam’s success in containing Covid-19 and the National Assembly’s approval of EVFTA and EVIPA.
