PSX Closing Bell: Damage Control

October 12, 2021 (MLN): The capital market on Tuesday endured a volatile session as the KSE-100 index witnessed an intraday high of 44,047.12 and a low of 43,149.21.

During the early trading hours, following the previous day's losses, bears continued to dominate across the board amid a lack of positive triggers which forced the index to lose more than 500 points.

The no-confidence motion against CM Jam Kamal yesterday submitted by 14 members of the Balochistan Assembly has also dented investors’ sentiments, a report by Ismail Iqbal Securities noted.
