The Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange (HOSE) closed Friday with a record total transaction value of more than US$1.5 billion, with a newly-listed housing developer enjoying a historic trading session, only in its second day being traded on the southern Vietnamese bourse.

Total transaction value on HOSE surpassed VND35 trillion ($1.54 billion) on Friday, with more than 408 million units traded.

The benchmark VN-Index at one point dropped to 1,013 points, but rebounded and closed the day at 1,040.54 points, up 9.9 points.

Among the large-cap stocks, GAS and VCB lost VND1,000 and VND300 per share, respectively, whereas SAB and VNM witnessed respective increases of VND10,000 and VND6,100, according to the Vietnam News Agency.
