SHARE prices rebounded during the early trading Wednesday, hitting the 8,000 resistance level as the local market mirrored its US counterpart closing up overnight, coupled with possible window-dressing.
The benchmark index jumped 1.05 percent or 83.48 points at 8,055.20. The broader All Shares rose 0.64 percent or 30.55 points at 4,783.88.
“As of lunch break we think it s because of the earnings that powered Wall Street higher overnight … This may just fan renewed buying in the Philippines and across the region,” Regina Capital Development Corp. said in a note.
“Another push at 8,000 may be seen as we approach window dressing,” it added.
