In long-term, the outlook of Vietnam’s stock market remains bright as the positive macro-economic environment would serve as a big boost for the market.

Vietnam’s benchmark VN-Index would soon recover following a free-fall of 73.23 points in yesterday’s trading session, or a decline of 6.67% from a day earlier, said a senior official from the State Securities Commission of Vietnam (SSC), the country’s stock market watchdog.

The official, talking on condition of anonymity, made the assessment while referring to improved market fundamentals compared to the past.

“The slump yesterday was due to a combination of various factors, including pressure for correction after a long period of uptrend that took the Vn-Index close to its all-time high of 1,204,” stated the official.

Meanwhile, Vietnam’s stock market was also impacted by the declining trend of from world’s major stock exchanges, with the likes of Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite falling by 2.1%, 2.6% and 2.6%, respectively, while stock exchanges of Hong Kong, Shanghai also went down by over 2%.

In case of Vietnam, the emergence of new local transmissions in Quang Ninh and Hai Duong caused negative sentiment among investors, especially new ones, and triggered a wave of sell-off at any cost, he noted.

In the short-term, the SSC’s representative expected to the market to continue going through further correction phase, due to the complicated Covid-19 situation that would affect businesses and trade activities.

“However, for the long-term, the outlook of Vietnam’s stock market remains bright,” stated the official, adding positive macro-economic environment would be a major boost for the market.

“Vietnam had successfully controlled the last two Covid-19 outbreaks, and this time I see no difference given the high determination of the entire political system and the positive response of the public,” he stressed.

At the close this morning [January 29], strong capital inflows of nearly VND17 trillion (US$737 million) into the stock market helped the VN-Index increase by 31.64 points or 3.09% to 1,055.58. Foreign investors remained net buyers in the market with over VND1.1 trillion (US$47.73 million).
