In March 13’s markets, slumping blue chips were once again responsible
for driving the VN-Index down on the HCM Stock Exchange, with the Index
giving up another 0.45 percent to close at 473.18 points.
Only five of the top 30 shares on the bourse advanced, while 22 codes
declined and three closed flat. The VN30 decreased by a more significant
0.86 percent to 542.94 points.
The market continued to fall due to the lack of positive news and most stocks were traded in narrow price ranges.
Both trading volume and value declined slightly from the previous
session, totalling nearly 50.3 million shares, worth 802 billion VND
(38.2 million USD).
Tan Tao Investment Industry (ITA)
was again the most active code by the end of the March 13 session with
2.6 million shares changing hands, edging down 3.9 percent at 7,500 VND a
Truong Thanh Furniture Corp (TTF), formerly
the most active code in the morning, came in the second with trades of
2.1 million shares. The shares rose 5.6 percent to settle at 7,400 VND.

1.27 percent to finish the March 13 session at 61.43 points following a
