November 10, 2023 (MLN): The benchmark KSE-100 index surged by a whopping 1,129.94 points or 2.08% DoD to close the last session of the week at another record high of 55,391.37.

This was the biggest DoD rise in both percentage and point terms since July 03, 2023, when the markets reopened after the Eid holidays and welcomed the news of a $3 billion Stand-By Arrangement (SBA) with the IMF that saved the country from a sovereign debt default.

Throughout the week, bulls remained in full control, with the index accumulating a weekly gain of 2,268.33 points or 4.27%.

The KSE-100 index today recorded the highest trading volume since June 16, 2021, with 372.306 million shares changing hands.

The All-Share volume in shares was the highest since July 01, 2021.

The positive sentiment has been further fueled by the latest PIB auction held on November 08, which showed a sharp decline in yields, possibly suggesting that market participants are expecting the interest rates to fall even earlier than previously expected.

Moreover, investors continue to cheer the improved economic indicators.

The latest Workers' remittances data released by the central bank today showed that the remittances increased by 11.54% MoM in October to $2.46 billion.
