However, the stock of VCB (Vietcombank) has surged to VND100,000 per share, playing a vital role in helping the VN-Index to maintain its milestone of 1,100 points.
The Vietnamese stock market regained a trading volume of over US$1 billion on June 8 after a long period. However, despite five consecutive sessions of gains, the VN-Index reversed its course and experienced a decline due to profit-taking pressure from investors as it approached the resistance level of 1,100 points.

For example, DIG plunged by 5.45 percent, NVL decreased by 2.41 percent, and DXG fell by 4.61 percent. However, some penny stocks in the real estate sector still reached their ceiling prices, including TDH, LDG, QCG, and TLD.
