Markets were relatively dormant reaching at a standstill at the end of the session. The market was very wayward during the day as it went up more than 300 points during the first half and went down more than 700 points in the second half. The markets have largely absorbed the negativity emanating from the JIT conclusions, yet the final verdict still holds potential to send the stock plummeting down again.

The market has recently ended its positive momentum since 2012 when it gained 49.42 percent during the year. During the period of 2012-16, the average growth stood at 31.105percent.

However, the 6 month position of PSX during the year 2017 stands at -8.4percent. The market has not witnessed such a decline since the markets started rallying in 2012.

However, the effects of the political uncertainty have not unfolded in its entirety. The Supreme Court verdict yet to be announced is of paramount importance to Pakistan’s financial and political stability and future.
