Analysts pointed to the lack of positive economic news to drive the market, and there was apprehension over reports of destabilization, although these have been denied. These factors acted as catalysts for the market to close at 26.33 points or 0.43 percent down at 6,161.89 points.

Only the services sub-index posted a gain, rising by 0.43 percent, while the property sector experienced a significant decline of 1.31 percent.

Financials lost 0.50 percent, industrials dropped by 0.43 percent, holding firms decreased by 0.27 percent, and mining and oil fell by 0.54 percent.

Foreign buying amounted to P1.448 billion, while foreign selling reached P1.511 billion, resulting in net foreign selling of P62 million.

This undercut the four days of rises in the index along with the net foreign buying. BDO Unibank was the day's most active stock with P436 million in trades as it lost P1.20 to P133.80, followed by Ayala Land with trades of P185 million, going down by 55 centavos to P28.95.

Market bellwether SM Investments provided relief to the market as it posted a P4 hike to P821.

Total value turnover amounted to P2.7 billion, with 65 gainers, 102 losers, and 45 shares unchanged.

Analysts suggested that the market hiccup arose from the uncertainty in the political landscape of the country, which has seen break-ups in otherwise united fronts of political groups.
