PSEi back above 7,700 mark as Fed holds steady

By Keith Richard D. Mariano, Reporter

Posted on September 23, 2016

THE MAIN INDEX soared toward the 7,700 mark on Thursday, after the Federal Reserve refrained from raising interest rates in the United States and subsequently eased concerns over a possible capital flight from emerging markets.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) rallied by 86.93 points or 1.13% to 7,762.35, extending its winning streak to four sessions. The broader all-shares likewise rose by 32.71 points or 0.71% to 4,603.05.

“The local market was up, as investors are again bullish on emerging markets as a sudden sizeable flight-to-safety move by foreign capital remains out of the picture,” Frank Gerard J. Barboza, equity trader at AP Securities, Inc., said in a mobile phone message.

Mr. Barboza attributed the bullishness of investors to the decision of the US central bank’s Federal Open Market Committee to defer another rate hike in a policy review that ended Wednesday in Washington.

Other markets in Southeast Asia climbed on Thursday, according to Reuters, following the decision of the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates in the world’s largest economy unchanged.

“The Fed’s decision to delay the interest rate increase has provided space for Asian lenders to even lower or maintain benchmark rate today (Thursday),” local brokerage DA Market Securities, Inc. noted in a market update.

All counters ended in the negative territory, except for the mining and oil sector that descended by 4.31 points or 0.04% to 10,860.27.

Services gained the most — 26.02 points or 1.70% — to close at 1,548.63. Holding firms rose by 101.56 points or 1.33% to 7,707.50; property by 28.17 points or 0.82% to 3,457.21; financials by 13.16 points or 0.70% to 1,868.25; and industrial by 73.70 points or 0.61% to 12,013.40.

Advancers led decliners, 109 versus 66, while 45 issues were unchanged. Investors traded 1.06 billion issues worth P8.49 billion. This compares with the P7.39 billion seen the previous session.

Foreign investors continued to dump more than what they bought, although net sales dropped over 11 times to P30.50 million from Wednesday’s P348.82 million.

“But again this may just be a chance to sell as a real bullish catalyst is hard to come by at this point for the index. Traders should become more cautious in the market as bias turns in favor of the bears,” AP Securities’ Mr. Barboza noted.

Investors have widely expected the Federal Reserve to leave interest rates unchanged this month although a December hike remains possible, First Grade Finance, Inc. Managing Director Astro C. del Castillo said separately.

“Moving forward, hopefully foreign funds will get back to the emerging markets,” Mr. del Castillo added.
