The KSE-100, a benchmark index for market performance, tumbled 379 points on Tuesday, closing below the 47,000 level as negative triggers dominated at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX).

At close, the KSE-100 finished with a drop of 379.12 points or 0.80% to settle at 46,891.34.

The index started off in the green, gaining over 100 points before the slide began. In intra-day trading, the KSE-100 went as low as 46,608.78 for a fall of 662 points before recovery began in the final hour.

“Market tumbled today mainly as a result of redemptions at mutual funds' end. On the other hand, negative news triggers on slippage of PKR parity with USD, US State Secretary's hint on revisiting US-Pakistan relations and pending IMF review had bearing on the Index,” said Arif Habib Limited in its post-market comment.

It added that the refinery sector also faced an onslaught with failure in approval of the Refinery Policy.

The upcoming monetary policy announcement, due on September 20, is also keeping investors jittery.

Volume on the all-share index increased from 395.84 million on Monday to 479.79 million on Tuesday. The value of shares traded, however, declined during the session, amounting to Rs15.04 billion from Rs16.19 billion.
