At close, the KSE-100 Index finished with a gain of 305.07 points or 0.64% to close at 47,758.32.

The approval of $650 billion Special Drawing Rights (SDR) Allocation (effective from August 23, 2021) by IMF governors, decline in daily infection ratio and approval of $40-billion exports target under the newly-introduced Export Facilitation by the government helped improve confidence, said Capital Stake in its post-market comment.

The newly-approved SDR allocation by IMF could boost Pakistan’s reserves by $2.8 billion, according to reports.
