The key index managed to recover into the later stages of the day, closing at 46,912.79(-257.05/-0.54%DOD). The all share index volumes stood at 252mln(18%DOD). The lackluster volumes are portraying investor cautious sentiment over Pakistan’s equity market, and we anticipate the volume to remain the same before any dominant trend emerges.
