''Does the market pressure increase during the Covid-19 in Vietnam? Evaluating the impacts from government responses ''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.2 )
 
 
Efficient stock price and liquidity are heavily affected by the extreme order imbalances, being the difference between the buy- and sell-initiated trades, leading to the market pressure. Data from Vietnam's stock market during Covid-19 is used to examine the effect of various government responses and policies during the Covid-19 pandemic on buying/selling pressure. Our findings indicate that the government responses and economic support are associated with an increase in the order imbalance or an increase in the buying pressure. In contrast, a country's risk from easing the stringency of policies leads to selling pressure. Regarding the impact of containment and closure policies, we find that the buying pressure is more likely associated with policies on workplace closing, restrictions on gatherings, and closed public transport than the stay-at-home requirements.
