A new electronic board for stock market trading is ready for this year after the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) launched it during its 10th listing anniversary.
The electronic board is composed of 130 LED (light emitting diode) panels covering close to 80 square meters of dynamic display.
The new board gives a preview of the stock market indices, and shows real time intraday graphs and pie charts of the sectors. It also featuring the most actively traded stocks by value, and the top ten gainers and losers.
Also, the new electronic board has interactive display of the United States and Asian markets, currency updates and has video-playing capability.
“As we unveil our new electronic board, I believe that we are also unveiling a new leaf in our history beyond the dynamic visuals that
the new electronic board will let us experience henceforth. Given the pace of progress and development of markets globally, I am sure the next 10 years will fly by us even faster. But I am confident that we shall also be able to achieve more in the coming years,” PSE Chairman Jose Pardo said.
“[The year] 2014 presents a whole new world of exciting opportunities for the PSE and the stock market. We shall continue to roll out our programs under our three-year strategic plan,” he added.
According to him, the local bourse will work closely again with all key stakeholders and regulators to push for the launching of the first Personal Equity Retirement Account under the PERA Law, as well as the short-selling program of the PSE.
