December 01, 2020 (MLN): Bulls continued to stay in the driving seat today at the Pakistan Stock Exchange on anticipation of easing CPI for November 20.
According to the closing note by Aba Ali Habib Securities, the market has been sustaining the bullish trend on the back of positive international cues and positive development on the global oil outlook. OPEC+ ministers drop signals that there may be consensus on the extension of current supply cuts well into 2021, which may provide further support to oil prices.
In addition, the cement sector saw a positive trend as participants expect the impact of rising coal prices to be passed onto consumers.
