Philippines shares seen trading sideways

The local stock market is seen trading sideways in the upcoming days, following the previous corrections in the trading sessions last week. 

In her weekly market outlook, Freya Natividad of online brokerage said that the market may remain on a "stabilization mode." 

"Local barometers might go on 'stabilization mode' in the coming 

weeks, following the latest correction. This pattern should be maintained within 6,600 to 6,650 range, to support the PSEi's [Philippine Stock Exchange index] ascending channel,Antique bath fixtures" she said. 

"If the 6,600 threshold is broken, some traders might hold another review, especially if a potential head-shoulder formation is confirmed. Trade a range.

She also said that it is important to take note of the situations in the United States and eurozone, as these could be a significant factor on how the market will trade this week. 

"How US authorities will temper the downside of 'fiscal sequestration' vis-a-vis the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee's accommodative policy stance will be balanced this week, especially with the latter's meeting on 20 March [US time]," Natividad said. 

"Economists' opinion remains split, whether the latest job addition and other numbers are enough evidence to affirm the US economy is already on its 'strong recovery' path.

Calaycay also noted that not one of the sectors escaped the sell-off that marked the previous week, specifying that the value turnover was 14 percent less week-on-week to P62.082 billion. He also identified that foreigners shifted gears and reversed the previous week's net purchases of P9.294 billion to net liquidations of P4.743 billion.
