The context of this whole blog is this is a a continuation from my post this morning, during the first hour of trading where I said
“The market slides down 1.51% in the first hour of trading. This brings the market close to the support at around 7,645. Let’s see if the market holds off this range and bounces.
If it does, the market it is relatively protected and the drop may stop for the time being.”

The market did dip close to 7,645 just before lunchtime! But just like how support ranges work, buyers started to emerge and brought the stock back up. So now let’s see if the stock can stay above 7,640! Because if it does, then probably we have seen the end of the short term correction.
Watch the 7,640 price range, because should it stay and hold this level the market now has the potential to go back to 7,931.
However if the market does not hold 7,640 and it starts to drop, possible corrections could lead the market to 7,537 to as low as 7,249 over the short term. Again the market will still stay bullish for the long term as long as 7,249 is protected.
On foreign selling
There has been a lot of talk that the honeymoon period of the Duterte administration is over and that foreigners are exiting the market. Well guess what, foreigners have been selling and doing this over and over even in the past few years regardless of the administration. You have to understand that foreign funds need to make profit and selling is normal because it allows them to lock in gains and comeback later again when the market is cheaper. Just looking at the numbers the market is at 21.96x P/E which makes us relatively expensive and if there is one thing foreign funds can do is that they can shift their funds to cheaper markets when certain exchanges are relatively more expensive.
What I am saying is, this is normal. What people don’t see also is that when foreigners sell, it gives locals the chance to buy cheaper (I am talking to investors here. Of course if you are a trader, please avoid the market while it is falling). Foreign selling is actually local buying.
Has anything changed?
As of this point, nothing has changed in the fundamentals of the country. Our country’s fundamentals is amazing and we are still bound for greater things. Corrections like this happen no matter how good an economy of a country is.
will position you for even greater heights. Of course you still have to be selective buying good, quality stocks and time them well using technical analysis.
A dose of inspiration
I hope this helps! God bless you! Remember your hope and peace is not based on what you see in the economy but because your prosperity, hope and abundance is based on the sure work of Jesus at the cross. We talk a lot about stocks and money but lets set our eyes not on the provision but on the provier.
This is aimed to help investors have a holistic sense on how they can grow, maximize, and preserve their wealth!(Stock Smarts Book 4 is also coming this year) I also feature other books in my website with authors that I respect which have different expertise in Finance, Business, Investing and everything else in between.
