August 23, 2019 (MLN): In a rather surprising turn of events, the KSE-100 index has lost 440 points in intraday, and has closed the first session of Friday at 31,444 points.
The market seems to be getting influenced by nonsensical and fallacious rumors regarding Pakistan being blacklisted by Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
Secondly, now that market has gained substantial momentum, the profiteers are taking up this opportunity to sell off their stocks for higher gains.
Having travelled within a range of 661 points, the index has so far touched an intraday low of 31,439 points.
Up until this point, the E&P and Power Generation sectors have endured the maximum losses.
