× Local stocks end 5-day slump

The local stock barometer firmed up above the 7,500 mark on Friday as investors found relief from the local central bank's monetary easing alongside some bargain-hunting after a five-day slump.

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) racked up 108.66 points, or 1.45 percent, to close at 7,583.82. The local market outperformed regional markets amid lingering US-China trade war jitters.
