The bellwether Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) went up Monday, a slightly slow but positive market opening for the week as Japan appears to have some success in cooling the nuclear reactors over the weekend. The PSEi closed the trading day at 3,844.31 points, up 0.115% or 4.43 points from Friday, when local shares rebounded from its five-day weak performance.
