According to BIDV Securities Company, the market liquidity declined slightly compared to the previous session and the market breadth was negative, showing that the investor sentiment is becoming more cautious.
 
"Investors were quite hesitant when VN-Index approaches the 860-870 point range. The index is likely to correct slightly or accumulate in the coming sessions,” the company said.
