April 8, 2014 (www.investorideas.com newswire) The Colcap index closed at 1,683 points, equivalent to a daily change of -1.18%, in line with international markets (S&P500 drops 1.1%). Today, total turnover reached USD 116 mn. The best performers were Fabricato (+4.32%), Valorem (+1.69%) and Cemargos (+0.40%). On the other hand, the worst performers were PfAviancaHoldings (-3.92%), Pacific Rubiales (-2.66%) and Banco de Bogota (-2.65%).
As we had said in past reports, Colcap index should have a correction after the steep movement it has had since the beginning of the year. This is the second day of losses and technically the index had space to reach levels near 1660-1670 before 1Q season begins. Moreover, 1,700 pts was a very important psychological level for investors.
