The Comptroller’s report also noted a decrease of 18.3% in the stock index.

Tagnia Shocrón S. wrote in Laestrella.com.pa: "The downward trend began with the volume traded in September 2008, and it has remained so far this year. Given these figures, the chairman of the BVP, Roberto Brenes, recognized that the effects of the financial crisis have changed the stock market, reducing the value traded. Economist Felipe Chapman explained that in some cases, investors in search of capital sold their shares below market price, thus reducing profitability."
