December 07, 2023 (MLN): The main gauge for the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) rallies to another record high during intraday trade and is on track for the tenth consecutive weekly gain.

This would be the largest weekly winning streak since January 2017, when the index recorded ten weeks of gains.

The index has added 646.44 points or 1.01% DoD to trade at 64,564.17 [10:58am PST], with a traded volume of 232.541 million shares.

Pakistan's stock market has been enjoying a bullish run amid hopes of improved economic conditions following the expected inflows from IMF and friendly countries, relatively stable currency amid government-backed administrative efforts, and a possible slash in the interest rates.

The stock market benchmark index has surged by 23,111 points or 55.75% during the fiscal year, whereas the ongoing calendar year has witnessed a cumulative increase of 24,144 points, equivalent to 59.73%.
