PSE Stocks: Top 10 Gainers and Losers (Jan-Mar 2015)

It’s beginning to be a tumultuous stock market again, with the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) continuing its downtrend, dipping below the 7,800 mark yesterday before recovering to close at 7,865.27.

Local stock prices have fallen in recent weeks, several hundred points away from the PSEi’s all-time high level above the 8,100 mark.

Will we see a return above the 8,000 level or a continued slump below the 7,800 mark?
