HNX and UPCoM also struggling early on.
by Hai Van
Early morning trade was quite slow on August 10 as foreign investors expressed some degree of caution.
By 10am, the VN-Index was down 2.68 points (0.28 per cent) to 960.92 points and the HNX-Index and the UPCoM-Index had also lost ground.
Bluechips such as VHM, VRE, VPB, GAS, MSN, CTG, and VIC fell slightly, with the market lacking momentum as a result. PVD, PVS, and PVB, after a correction yesterday, were unable to regain their momentum. Demand, however, remained quite strong.
HAG took profits at the beginning of the session and was close to its reference level, with matching orders soaring to 20 million units. HNG, meanwhile, continued to take profit and lost VND700.
Large caps BVH and VJC stemmed any possible major decline.
