Stocks to slide further ahead of policy meetings

By Keith Richard D. Mariano, Reporter

Posted on September 19, 2016

THE BENCHMARK INDEX may continue sliding towards the 7,300 line this week, as investors keep a close watch on central banks, particularly the Federal Reserve that will decide on what could be the second rate hike in the United States since the recession.

“We are moving into what we may refer to as the ‘central bank week’,” A&A Securities, Inc. Head of Market and Research Justino B. Calaycay, Jr. said in a weekly market note.

The Bank of Japan (BoJ) is scheduled to meet on Sept. 20-21, followed by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) in Washington on Sept. 20-21 and the European Central Bank’s (ECB) non-monetary policy meeting on Sept. 21-22. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas is also reviewing policy on Sept. 22.

“Markets have been focused on this period with mixed expectations — waiting for more stimulus from the BoJ and the ECB while holding their breath over prospects of upward rate adjustments by the US Federal Reserve,” Mr. Calaycay said.

In a weekly outlook, pointed out that retail sales, industrial production and other macroeconomic data from the US have weakened the case for the upward adjustment of interest rates in the world’s largest economy.

“Note that, however, the BoJ is also set to have its meeting and uncertainty is budding as policy makers are still divided whether to reduce their easing policies or to make its bond-buying program more flexible,” it said.

The online brokerage pegged the immediate support and resistance of the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) at 7,500 and 7,700 for the week.

BPI Asset Management, meanwhile, placed the support level between 7,300 and 7,400. It expects the local market to continue falling amid the central bank meetings also expected to bring volatility across global equities.

“Investors are waiting for a clear policy direction from the Fed after economic data remained mixed,” it noted. “Volatile trading will ensue [this] week unless US [consumer price index] for August disappoints significantly.”

The uncertainty surrounding the timing of another rate hike in the US helped keep the local stock market in the negative territory last week.

The PSEi lost another 28.03 points or 0.37% to settle at 7,553.76 on Friday, as investors cashed in earlier gains amid the uncertainty over the FOMC meeting as well as the geopolitical concerns arising at home.

Foreign investors maintained a net selling position during the week at P4.25 billion, more than half the P7.20 billion recorded in the Sept. 5-9 period.

“The gains since [President Rodrigo R.] Duterte took office at noon of June 30, which at one point stood at 3.92%, has been wiped out,” A&A Securities’ Mr. Calaycay noted.
