The benchmark VN-Index on the Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange gained 1.07 per cent to end at 975.64 points.
 
Liquidity improved, meaning that cash flow was gradually returning to the market. More than 188 million shares were traded on the southern bourse, worth VNĐ4.2 trillion (US$178 million).
 
The index gained 0.71 per cent on Tuesday to end at 965.34 points. It has gained total 1.78 per cent since Monday.
 
Regional and global investor sentiment supported the domestic market as many markets in the region posted gains after sell-off in recent sessions.
