Earlier this week, Deputy Minister Nguyen Duc Chi said that the Ministry of Finance has directed the implementation of solutions so that as early as August, investors can trade with a lot size of 10 stocks, the way they did before on the HSX.
However, Tran Van Dung, chairman of the State Securities Commission, warned of the prolonged health crisis in Ho Chi Minh City which would slow down any technical upgrade or changes.
From August 9, HSX has suspended all on-site activities and switched to online operations after discovering COVID-19 infections.
Besides, according to Circular No.51/2021/TT-BTC on foreign investment activities on the Vietnamese securities market, foreign investors, and groups of affiliated foreign investors shall submit reports on their ownership and disclose information about their securities transactions in accordance with regulations on information disclosure on the securities market.
