Market watch: KSE-100 erases gains to close marginally upward
The Pakistan Stock Exchange recorded a tumultuous session on Wednesday as the KSE-100 index erased gains to end the session partially upward. Clarity on delay in discussion of Pakistan’s case by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) triggered buying activity at the bourse. On the flip side, persistent uptrend in Covid-19 infections sparked panic among the market participants and motivated them to offload their holdings out of fear of imposition of another lockdown. A recovery in rupee against the US dollar lent further support to the rally. Trading began with a jump and the KSE-100 index surpassed 46,000 point mark within the first few minutes. Although the market sustained the uptrend for most part of the session, concerns over the economy and renewed threat of lockdown encouraged investors to sell their holdings which pulled the market downward. At close, the benchmark KSE-100 index recorded an increase of 35.12 points, or 0.08%, to settle at 45,916.25. A report of Arif Habib Limited stated that market opened on a positive note on Wednesday and managed to remain positive during the day.
