Philippine stocks finish 0.4% up on volatile trading



The Philippine composite index closed yesterday higher by 15.84 points or 0.4% at 3,774.81.

Investors, returning from a four-day break last week, remained on the sidelines weighing issues such as inflation and the continuing concerns in the US economy amid rising oil prices.

But hopes that the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (Central Bank) will soon cut key interest rates in response to the US Federal Reserve rate cut supported the market.

On Wednesday last week, the Federal Reserve cut its benchmark rate by 25 basis points, but said inflation remained a concern, which analysts took as a signal that the Fed will temporarily defer further rate cuts.
