September 2, 2019 (MLN): Trampling upon a rather zig-zag route throughout the day, the KSE-100 index ultimately chose to land in green as it gained 385 points by the end of the session and closed at 30,057-mark.
As pointed out earlier in the Midday Report, trading at the Pakistan Stock Exchange was suspended due to technical issues. However, as soon as it resumed, the index made a remarkable turn as it was up by almost 500 points and was trading above 30,000 mark.
As per the judgements of market analysts, the index galloped high on the back of much anticipated multifaceted reform package by SECP. While the euphoria generated by this reform package was rightly reflected in today’s performance, the overall scenario may very well be deceptive as this euphoria is not expected to last for very long.
Of the 89 traded companies in the KSE100 Index 68 closed up 20 closed down, while 1 remained unchanged. Total volume traded for the index was 48.17 million shares.
