“Philippine shares started off in the green, tracking the positive start of Asia and the futures market, following the release of a stronger-than-expected jobs report,” said Regina Capital Development Corporation Managing Director Luis Limlingan.
Philstocks Financial Research and Engagement Officer Claire Alviar said “The local bourse gained due to last-minute bargain hunting. Also, the big-time oil price rollback tomorrow helped the bourse to end in the green.”
She noted that, “The market traded mostly in the red territory amid a lack of positive catalysts while waiting for the inflation rate in the US.”
