Vietnam index drops 0.2 pct, bargain hunting emerges
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ticked down 0.25 percent on Wednesday to close at 604.29 points as investors sold shares for the fourth straight session,
but buying at low prices kept the market from a strong decline.
Selling pulled the market to as low as 596.5 points in early trade, before investors seeking cheap shares saved the index from a steep fall.
"The market will recover in the next two days," said analyst Vu Thi Thu Trang of APEC Securities. "It is positive that buying demand is strong enough to cover the falls," she added.
Dairy product maker Vinamilk led the declines with a 1.85-percent drop, followed by PetroVietNam Gas , Vietnam's biggest firm by market value, that lost 0.92 percent.
