Market Commentary: The VN-INDEX dropped 0.2% on the second day awaiting the US Election final result
The VN-INDEX slightly dropped 0.2% to 937.8pts due to Materials and Financials large caps fall.

Oil drops on fading stimulus hopes and post-election uncertainty
Oil dropped in Asian trading – after jumping the most in a month on Wednesday – as expectations for a big dollop of U.S. fiscal stimulus receded following a closer-than-expected and still undecided election. Futures in New York fell below US$39/barrel after rising 4% Wednesday. Recounts and legal challenges could also lead to a prolonged period of uncertainty. (Bloomberg
Vietnam’s second stimulus package focus on most affected sectors
The second stimulus package to aid the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic would focus on the most affected sectors, including aviation, tourism and consumers, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment. The policies for the aviation industry would support cash flow and liquidity for airlines to help them avoid bankruptcy which is estimated at around VND11tr (US$474m). Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, aviation companies were facing tumbling revenues and shortages of cash which might push them into insolvency. For the tourism industry, the ministry proposed a reduction of 80% of deposits for two years, from November 2020 to November 2022, aiming to help tourism enterprises have more working capital for their operation. The ministry proposed another five-month extension of deadlines for payments of taxes and land use fees regulated in Decree 41/2020/NĐ-CP for enterprises operating in affected sectors. The ministry also proposed value added tax (VAT) on necessary consumer goods to be reduced to promote consumption. The tax reduction would help lower prices of goods and services which would stimulate shopping. It was estimated that every 1% reduction in VAT could promote consumption equivalent to 0.2% of GDP, according to the ministry. However, the ministry noted that this policy might have a significant impact on the State budget revenue. It included a fiscal support package worth VND73.1tr, a monetary and credit support package worth VND36.6tr, a social welfare package worth VND62tr and other packages including support in power prices and telecommunication service prices.
