Report: Market Update

On Friday (June 14th), although opening lower, however, the VN-Index regained the ground, and closed at its highs of the day as bank stocks rallied. By the closing bell, the VN-Index rose 3.53 points (+0,37%) to close at 953,61. Trading volume was nearly 160 million shares, worth VND3,400 billion. Breadth was positive, with gainers topping losers 145 to 130. Foreign investors net sold VND58 billion on the HSX, mainly in SBT.

In view of technical analysis, the VN-Index’s daily chart shows a green candlestick at the resistance range of 952 – 954, which is a sign of positivity. Therefore, we believe that, in a positive scenario, the VN-Index will test the nearest resistance level of 957, or MA200, at which investors can sell a part of the existing short-term portfolio. In a negative scenario, the nearest support range of VN-Index is forecast at 940 – 950, the next support range is expected at 920 – 930.

We recommend investors should not buy at high ask in this period, and consider reducing stock proportion in technical recovery sessions, especially when the current cash flow is very weak, and the risk of decline still exists. Based on Kelly formula, the recommended proportion of the portfolio is 90% cash/ 10% stocks.
