HÀ NỘI - Shares gained on Tuesday as strong buying forces brought an upswing on blue chips, lifting indices.

On the Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange, the VN-Index gained 1.49 per cent, to close at 1,047.45 points.

In the VN-30 basket, the biggest gainers included property giant Vinhomes (VHM), Vietinbank (CTG), Hoà Phát Group (HPG), Phát Đạt Real Estate (PDR), SSI Securities Inc (SSI) and Sacombank (STB).

In the banking group, all stocks gained ground, fostered by strong buying force, with gainers including Military Bank (MBB), Techcombank (TCB), Vietcombank (VCB), Bank for Investment and Development of Viet Nam (BID), VietinBank (CTG), Việt Nam International Commercial JS Bank (VIB) and Saigon-Hanoi Commercial JS Bank (SHB), and Tiên Phong Bank (TPB).
