The KSE-100, a benchmark index, remained under a bearish spell with volumes also showing a significant drop at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Wednesday.

At close, the KSE-100 finished with a drop of 174.62 points or 0.37% to settle at 46,716.72.

The index gained close to 60 points in intra-day trading, closing in on the 47,000 level before turning red as market participants continued to offload shares. The index dropped to an intra-day low of 46,505.13 before recovery began.

“The market continued the downward trend following the slippage in PKR parity with the USD that deteriorated further to touch 169.70 in interbank trading, and crossed 170 in the open market,” said Arif Habib Limited in a post-market comment.

“Unabated foreign selling coincided with local mutual funds disposing of positions on the pretext of redemptions.”

On the market front, Interloop Limited (ILP) announced its financial results for 4QFY21, with the company posting earnings of Rs1,689 million and an EPS at Rs1.94.
