Oil extends gains after report points to drop in U.S. stockpiles

Oil pushed higher in Asia after an industry report pointing to a third straight weekly drop in U.S. crude stockpiles spurred optimism over the demand recovery in the world’s largest economy. Futures in New York traded near US$48/barrel after climbing 0.8% on Tuesday. The American Petroleum Institute reported crude inventories fell by 4.79m barrels last week, according to people familiar with the data. That would be the biggest decline since October if confirmed by official figures due Wednesday. More dollar weakness also supported oil, which is priced in the currency. (Bloomberg)

PM decides to establish Vietnam Stock Exchange

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has signed Decision 37/2020/QD-TTg on the establishment of the Vietnam Stock Exchange (VNX), with the aim of unifying the stock market and ensuring efficient, fair, open and transparent activities. The VNX, with the chartered capital of VND3tr (US$130.2m), will be headquartered in Hanoi and operated as a one-member limited liability company wholly owned by the State. The Ministry of Finance will be the representative of the State capital. The Hanoi Stock Exchange (HNX) and the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE) will become its subsidiaries, yet will both operate independently. 19 out of 25 sector indices on the stock market gained ground, including logistics, wholesale, real estate, IT, energy, securities, healthcare, construction materials, insurance, banking and rubber production.
