PSX Closing Bell: Realm of Fear

December 24, 2021 (MLN): The capital market opened on a positive note on Friday but lack of positive triggers pushed investors towards profit booking which concluded the benchmark KSE-100 index at 44,118.39 after losing 148.52 points.

The optimistic approach faded away due to concerns of investors towards higher inflation and dip in total liquid foreign exchange reserves held by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) mainly due to external debt repayment.

Activity continued to remain side-ways as the market witnessed hefty volumes in the 3rd tier stocks. On the flip-side, in the second session institutional buyers started fetching value stocks due to attractive multiples, post-market note by Arif Habib Limited (AHL) noted.
