Taiwan finmin says now is not the time to intervene in markets

TAIPEI, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Taiwan’s Finance Minister Su Jain-rong told Reuters on Friday that now is not the time for the National Stabilisation Fund to intervene in the stock markets, which rebounded after a big fall on Thursday on fears of the spread of the coronavirus.

But if large outflows from foreign investors cause market disorder, a meeting of the fund will be held, Su added.
