Market Commentary: The VN-INDEX fell 0.2% as selling pressure emerged in late trading.
The VN-INDEX closed 2.2pts down in Monday’s session as many market pillars lost ground in late trading. Following a positive sentiment from last week with a 0.5% rise, the VN-INDEX started trading in the green and surpassed the 1,360pts during the morning session. The advance was mainly fueled by the Financials sector with VCB (+2.5%), VIB (+6.9%), TCB (+1.9%), MBB (+1.4%), ACB (+1.6%), LPB (+4.7%), and VPB (+0.7%). These stocks added a combined of 2.3pts to the index’s move.

However, as the afternoon session was nearing its end, profit-taking activities emerged and overwhelmed other large caps, pushing the VN-INDEX down to the red territory. Notably, GAS became the largest laggard after dropping 3.4% to VND88,800, alone wiping 1.6pts off the index.
