Trading at the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) will continue even during the imposition of the enhanced community quarantine starting August 6, 2021.

In a message, PSE Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President Roel A. Refran said that, during the ECQ, “we will have the same trading schedule as have at present.

 This is in contrast to the first time the ECQ was imposed in March last year when the PSE had to suspend trading operations indefinitely starting as most businesses were ordered closed and for people to stay home.

 The suspension was meant “to ensure the safety of employees and traders in light of the escalating cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).”
