The week suffered from a lack of activity as the markets were open only for the last two days owing to the Eid holidays.
Yesterday’s session was appositive one for the market as the markets ended the session in a plus of more than 350 points. This was in continuation of the momentum sparked earlier on the last day before Eid holidays. The markets have been finicky for the last few weeks as the political storm continues to brew in the centre. The markets are still skeptical of the impending decision form the Panamagate JIT, which is set to give out a historic verdict in the next few weeks.
The markets were relatively dormant as there was no stark upward or downward movement during the day. The market activity range was well within 300 range from yesterday's close.
The session witnessed a cumulative decline of 146.56 points or a 0.31 percent.
