“Following a meteoric rise in the market, investors finally decided to cash in to close the week, with majority of the regional [markets] declining,” Regina Capital Development Corp. head of sales Luis Limlingan said.

Claire Alviar, Philstocks Financial Inc. assistant manager for research and online engagement, added investors also took some profits before the announcement of the November inflation data on December 6.
