The 30 biggest stocks tracking VN30-Index rose 2.46 percent to 1,029.04 points. Twenty-two in the VN30 basket increased, while four declined and four ended unchanged.
Securities stocks soared at the end of the session with many strong gainers, namely Asia - Pacific Securities Joint Stock Company (APS), Việt Nam Bank For Industry & Trade Securities JSC (CTS), indirect Securities Co (VND), Bank for Investment & Development of Vietnam Securities Company (BSI) and VIX Securities Joint Stock Company (VIX).
Real estate and construction stocks witnessed a dramatic gain in prices as a series of large-cap stocks hit the daily limit rise such as Khang Điền House (KDH), Novaland (NVL), and Phát Đạt Real Estate Group (PDR).
Other stocks in the group also climbed such as Kinh Bắc City Development Holding Corporation (KBC), Hà Đô Group JSC (HDG), Nam Long Group (NLG), Hòa Bình Construction Group Joint Stock Company (HBC) and Viglacera Corporation - JSC (VGC), LDG Investment JSC (LDG), Tân Tạo Investment and Industry Corporation (ITA), Hoàng Quân Consulting-Trading-Service Real Estate Corporation (HQC), Thủ Đức Housing Development Corporation (TDH), Vạn Phát Hưng Corporation (VPH), Licogi 16 Joint Stock Company (LCG) and FECON CORPORATION (FCN).
Liquidity increased positively, showing that cash flow is still actively participating. The current upward momentum will likely help the market maintain an active status when entering the next session. However, there could be strong fluctuation at the resistance zone of 1,017 – 1,027 points of the VN-Index. This is also a challenging area to surpass so that the market can move towards higher target areas, said Việt Dragon Securities Co.
Therefore, investors can expect the market's upturn to expand but should limit buying at high prices when VN-Index approaches the resistance zone. At the same time, it is necessary to observe the subsequent supply absorption to consider buying and accumulating stocks.
The market extended its upward momentum and successfully conquered the psychological level of 1,000 points. Liquidity also increased in line with the index's gaining movement, showing that the cash flow was more confident, it said.
