HANOI, Nov. 25 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th Nov, 2021 ) :Vietnam's benchmark VN-Index rose 0.8 percent to reach an all-time high of 1,500.81 points on Thursday with some 31.8 trillion Vietnamese dong (1.4 billion U.S. dollars) poured into the market.
On Wednesday, the VN-Index benchmark surged 1.72 percent to a record 1,488.87 points, with banking stocks leading the blue chip growth.
Notably, the index has increased by 33.9 percent since the beginning of 2021, and by over 120 percent from its low in March 2020 when the Southeast Asian country was hit by the first COVID-19 outbreak.
According to local securities analysts, vibrant transactions which have continuously set new records in value are playing an important role in fueling the market rise.
In particular, transactions totaled over 56.3 trillion Vietnamese dong (nearly 2.5 billion U.S. dollars) for the single session on Nov. 19.
The Vietnamese stock market has regularly witnessed sessions with value topping 1 billion U.S. Dollars since early this year, compared to around 277 million U.S. dollars per session in 2020, according to the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, on which the VN-Index is based.
The Vietnamese stock market has attracted a large number of new individual investors in the past few months. COVID-19 restrictions and mandatory working-from-home were among the factors leading them to the online investment operation, said local experts.
