Equities fall 32 points on nervous trading
KARACHI, Jan 19: The shares market on Thursday took a technical breather as a section of investors took profits at the inflated levels but selling was well-absorbed, notably at dips.
The underlying sentiment was also a bit nervous owing to start of proceedings against the Prime Minister in contempt case in the Supreme Court as some of the weak holders unloaded, in part, their long positions awaiting the apex court ruling, some analysts said.
After having risen by over 500 points during the recent sustained run-up, the KSE 100-share index suffered a modest fall of 32.13 points at 11,515.59 on active profit-selling in some of the pivotals as compared to previous 11,547.72 points.
`It was again the weakness of the indexheavy OGDC, which dragged the entire market along with it in the minus column,` said a leading analyst Ahsan Mehanti. It ended with a sharp fall of Rs3.58 around 147.00 on a large volume of 1.113m shares.But the fact that the fact that the broader market performed again credible well reflects that selling was psychological rather than real, he said.
Another leading stock analyst Samar Iqbal said much of the activity remained confined to a second-liners, which indicates that leading investors are still in an upbeat mood and are holding on to the price line.
He said fresh increase in the volume figures showed investor confidence in the current market stance, although some of them sought refuge in the low-priced shares to avoid an undue risk.
