VN-Index rebounds after profit-taking session

The VN-Index soared 1.46 percent to 1,045 points Friday, with buying pressure on blue chips propping the market up after a single losing session. Although investors had rushed to sell off stocks in the previous session, causing the benchmark index to fall 0.79 percent, buying pressure on the market’s largest caps seem to have revived demand, helping the VN-Index stay green for the whole trading day. The Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE), on which the VN-Index is based, was a sea of green with 313 stocks gaining and 124 losing, of which 12 hit their ceiling prices. Total trading volume fell over 15 percent compared to the previous session, to VND10.56 trillion ($457.99 million), of which just under half went towards the VN30, a basket of the HoSE’s 30 largest caps. The VN30-Index this session climbed 1.45 percent, with 24 of its tickers gaining and only three losing.
