The market's breadth was also positive as the number of gainers surpassed that of losers by 168 to 162. Liquidity on the southern bourse still remained high at VNĐ23 trillion (US$900 million), equivalent to a trading volume of 891 million shares.

Leading the market's uptrend were pillar stocks in the banking industry.

Data compiled by the financial website showed that the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BID) was the biggest gainer on the market and led the market's trend in terms of capitalisation. Shares of the lender rose by 2.53 per cent, contributing more than 0.6 points to the VN-Index.
