Broader Asian stocks were also firmer, after better-than-expected U.S. jobs data and signs of progress in talks for a $2 trillion stimulus deal in Washington supported U.S. equities overnight. The rally was boosted further by foreign investors, as new daily coronavirus cases slowed in the last week and the government moved to reopen the economy, signalling better economic prospects, said Nicholas Mapa, ING's senior economist for the Philippines.
The Philippines, one of the worst hit in Southeast Asia by the pandemic, shortened curfew hours in Manila and eased regulations on stay-at-home orders on Monday, just a week after a ban on non-essential overseas travel was lifted. Manila's benchmark stock index, which has largely underperformed this year, rose 1.7% to its highest since Aug. 19, driven by gains in blue-chip consumer stocks.

Over the weekend, the People's Bank of China (PBOC) lowered the reserve requirement ratio for financial institutions when conducting some foreign exchange forwards trading to zero from 20%, effectively lowering the cost of shorting the Chinese currency.
