Do Bao Ngoc, analyst, Habubank Securities:

“Stocks fell on talk that fuel prices may be raised.”

“However, buying demand was strong, correction could be short-lived and stocks may turn around next week in hope for low monthly inflation and a shortened settlement period.”

“The market is also looking at a possibility that the cap on lending rates would be applied this week.”

Tran Minh Hoang, analyst, Vietcombank Securities:

“Correction is necessary so that stocks could gather more steam to re-test strong resistance levels.”

“Cash inflows are strong. The indices could rebound early next week.” ($1=20,820 dong)
