Closing bell: PSX zones out

February 6, 2020 (MLN): Contrary to the last trading session, the index recorded a negative close of 159 points after oscillating between red and green zones and ultimately closed at 40,724 level i.e. around 0.39% lower than the previous closing.

Absence of positive triggers resulted in selling pressure for investors. Moreover, an increase in cut-off yields on PIBs during Tuesday’s auction kept risk appetite in check.
