MANILA -- (UPDATE) The Philippine Stock Exchange said there would be no trading Monday due to the eruption of Taal Volcano, which blanketed in ash parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila.

Peso-dollar spot trading for the day was also canceled, according to the Bankers Association of the Philippines.

Ash fall also prompted the temporary suspension of all flights at the Manila's main airport as well as school and work in government offices.
