April 02, 2024 (MLN): The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) saw relief after two consecutive drops, as the benchmark KSE-100 index concluded Tuesday's trading session at 66,886.26, showing an increase of 89.94 points or 0.13%.

The index traded in a range of 385.91 points showing an intraday high of 66,959.55 (+163.22) and a low of 66,573.63 (-222.69) points.

The total volume of the KSE-100 index was 94.865 million shares.

It is worth highlighting that PSX's main gauge surged 4,554 points or 7.3% in 1Q2024, marking its fourth consecutive quarterly win. In USD terms, the 100 index gained 8.8%.

The relentless rally, which began last year after the country avoided default with the assistance of International Monetary Fund (IMF), was further boosted by better-than-expected conclusion of general elections, anticipation of interest rate cuts, and fresh inflows from the IMF.

This was further complemented by the government’s efforts to restructure and privatize Pakistan International Airlines Corp (PSX: PIAA).
