The PSE Index – 13 June 2013
June 13, 2013 is a historic day in the Philippine stock market! This is probably the biggest one-day-plunge for the PSE index since October 2008. Today, it closed at 6114.08, shedding 442.57 points (–6.75%). If my charting software serves me right, today’s close touched the 200 day Moving Average, the index should bounce from here, if not, the next line of defense is at 5,900.
This crash is worth noting since it only happens once in a decade… or is it?
