The market opened on a positive note as FATF has indicated that after onsite inspection, Pakistan may be taken off the grey list in next plenary session to be held in Paris in Oct’22.
However, this positivity didn’t sustain at the bourse as delay in the resumption of the IMF program and continuous fligh of PKR against USD kept the market haywire.
“The market is ringing alarm bells for upcoming external loans and import payments in the coming months due to low FX reserves” analyst at Pearl Securities said.
