PSE Extended Trading Hours

I am a Money Magnet! We are Money Magnets!

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) board today approved the extension of the PSE Trading hours.  Starting on the first monday of October, October 3, 2011, the PSE will be open from 9:30 am to 01:00 pm.  This is the initial implementation of the extended trading hours.  

PSE President Hans Sicat said that the board approved the extension of trading hours to align our local equities market with the rest of the world.  This is in preparation for the planned linkage of the PSE with other Southeast Asian bourse.  Another thing to look forward to next year!

Starting next year, the tentative schedule for the new trading hours will be from 9:30am to 12:00nn and from 1:00pm to 3:30pm.  A one hour break will be imposed starting 12nn and the market will open again for the afternoon session by 1:00pm.

Hopefully this initiative will attract more investors and increase the liquidity in our equity market.
