The local stock market jumped on continued optimism over the expected easing of quarantine measures. 

The PSEi rose 102.78 points, or 1.71 percent, to close at 6,097.78 with only the Services sector in the red.

The PSEi extended gains today as investors gained more optimism that lighter quarantine restrictions will strengthen the economy’s recovery in the third quarter. Several blue chips continue higher after bouncing back from their lowest levels in the last three months. The main index is currently up 4.3% for the week. We may see some profit taking on the last trading day of the week.
