The market settled higher on Tuesday, backed by large-cap stocks, with the VN-Index getting closer to the key level of 1,500 points. 
 
On the Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE), the VN-Index rose 8.65 points, or 0.58 per cent, to 1,498.78 points. It lost 8.76 points in the previous session due to a strong sell-off. 
 
The market’s breadth was positive with 247 stocks increasing, while 204 stocks declined. Liquidity was also higher than the previous trade, of which more than 842.4 million shares were traded, worth VNĐ26.3 trillion (US$1.15 billion).
 
The market benchmark’s recovery was boosted by strong gains of pillar stocks, as the market’s risk appetite improved. The VN30 basket recorded a rise of 2.94 points, or 0.19 per cent, to 1,520.12 points. 
 
Seventeen stocks in the VN30 basket jumped, while 11 stocks slid and two stocks ended flat. 
 
Accordingly Vingroup (VIC) led the bullish trend with a gain of 2.86 per cent. It was followed by Vietnam Rubber Group (GVR), Development Investment Construction JSC (DIG) and Viecombank (VCB).
 
The index was also supported by rises of other big stocks like SeaBank (SSB), Vinhomes (VHM) and BIDV (BID).
 
However steel stocks pared gains in the afternoon trade after hitting ceiling prices the previous session, with Hoà Phát Group (HPG) down 0.64 per cent, while Nam Kim Group (NKG) and Hoa Sen Group (HSG) both jumped more than 1 per cent. 
 
However selling force was lingering due to impact from global geopolitical tensions.
 
Analysts from Saigon-Hanoi Securities SJC (SHS) said that the market continues to focus on the results of Russia-Ukraine talks. 
 
In a positive scenario, if talks go smoothly, the benchmark is likely to break out of the current price range to regain the psychological threshold of 1,500 points.
 
On the other hand, in the negative scenario, if talks fail and tensions escalate, the VN-Index may need to retreat to lower support zones to find bottom-fishing demand, the securities added. 
 
The HNX-Index on the Hà Nội Stock Exchange (HNX) also ended higher yesterday, up 3.14 points or 0.71 per cent to 443.56 points. 
 
Investors poured nearly VNĐ3.6 trillion into the market during the session, equivalent to a trading volume of nearly 121.2 million shares. 
 
Meanwhile, foreign investors returned to the market after net buying a total of VNĐ120.84 billion. Of which, they net bought a value of VNĐ148.53 billion on HoSE, but net sold a value of VNĐ27.69 billion on HNX. VNS
