Cash flow focused on Banking, Securities, and Metals, spreading to the rest of the industry groups, it said.
For investors with a high proportion of stocks, they can consider selling and restructuring their portfolio when the market rises in the next sessions, it said.
Investors still need to be cautious, observe supply and demand movements and avoid chasing buys. In addition, it is recommended to maintain the portfolio weight at a reasonable level and take advantage of the market's recovery to structure the portfolio in the direction of minimising risk, said Việt Dragon Securities Co.
