The bullish inertia continue to bring the market up and conquer the higher resistence zone. Liquidity improved compared to the previous period, showing that investors’ sentiment is gradually becoming positive again, said Việt Dragon Securities Co.
“With this development, the market may continue to gain in the next session thanks to the inertia, yet a dispute situation may take place. The next resistance area to watch out for is the old peak of 1,100 points of VN-Index, equivalent to 1,120 points of VN-30 index. Therefore, investors expect the market’s ability to rise, but still need to pay attention to selling pressure at the upcoming peak,” said the company.
