From now on, I will just quote the related article from Business World so that we will have everything in one piece:


Stocks almost unchanged as market seeks leads

Posted on January 31, 2017

LOCAL STOCKS barely moved as the market opened the week, as trading remained subdued amid the celebration of the Chinese New Year while policy uncertainties in the United States dampened sentiment.

The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) settled at its intraday low of 7,336.71 on Monday, eking out a gain of 3.04 points or 0.04% in the local bourse’s first trading session in the Year of the Fire Rooster.

The broader all shares index likewise closed almost unchanged, gaining less than a point or 0.01% to 4,415.68.

“Investors opted to stay on the sidelines and be cautious while waiting for more catalysts, one of which is the upcoming Federal Reserve meeting,” Jonathan J. Latuja, research analyst at Unicapital Securities, Inc., said via text.

Trading in other Southeast Asian markets also remained dull, as some remained shut to usher in the Lunar New Year, while concerns over US President Donald J. Trump’s immigration policy hurt sentiment, according to news service Reuters.

“Trump’s policy on migrants has stirred a hornet’s nest among its global allies as well as businessmen at home, moving funds toward safer havens,” Justino B. Calaycay, Jr., head of marketing and research at A&A Securities, Inc., said in a trading post.

Most counters registered losses. Holding firms dropped by 29.56 points or 0.39% to 7,472.14; industrials by 34.56 points or 0.31% to 11,127.13; mining and oil by 23.18 points or 0.19% to 12,172.60; and services by 0.25 point to 0.01% to 1,446.42.

The financials and property sectors provided some lift to the market, rising by 10.27 points or 0.58% to 1,775.27 and by 17.91 points or 0.54% to 3,319.00, respectively.

Still, the market breadth turned out negative, with 94 stocks declining against 89 advancers and 44 others that stayed put.

Value turnover dropped to P4.04 billion from the P5.13 billion posted on Friday, after 1.66 billion issues changed hands. Foreigners’ buying activities prevailed over outflows to yield net purchases of P234.15 million, adding to the P73.94-million net inflows booked in the previous session.

But the lack of trading participants actually boosted the local market along with window dressing activities ahead of the month’s close, Luis A. Limlingan, managing director of Regina Capital Development Corp., noted in a mobile phone message. “Philippine markets closed flat as US stocks eroded a bit on Friday, even as overall the market’s recent upward bias was viewed as intact and major indices ended higher for the week.”

“Asian shares suffered a worse fate, falling from a four-month high on concern about rising global trade and geopolitical risks after US President Donald Trump imposed a travel ban on people from seven predominantly Muslim nations.” — Keith Richard D. Mariano
