“Along with countries in the world taking urgent measures to control the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government of Vietnam has also implemented drastic measures to socialize as well as minimizing the possibility of cross infection. This is probably the most positive policy impact to bring confidence to the people and will also help investors have better mindset”, Mr. Le Duc Khanh, Chief Economist and Strategic Director of Petroleum Securities Joint Stock Company said.
Some opinions said that investor sentiment is good, and the recovery of stock index might continue in short-term. The shaking is not enough to cause the index to drop strongly again because the initiative of the buyers at the lower prices is still high.
Predicting the movements of the stock market this week, Mr. Tran Minh Hoang, Head of VCBS Analysis and Research Department, said: "Strong net selling pressure will take place continuously from foreign investors. The existing portfolio has contributed to increase the pressure on investors in general and limit the prospect of market recovery. On the other hand, profit-taking pressure last week also increased significantly when the VN Index exceeded 750 points. The market may experience a few "shake" and even downward adjustments", according to Bao tin tuc.
