A plunge in oil prices revived sentiments at the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX), as the benchmark KSE-100 Index recovered losses made during previous sessions, registering a gain of over 350 points on Tuesday. Volume and value of shares traded also increased.

The market opened on a positive note amid a decline in international oil prices, as the index jumped to 43,793.57, gaining 426.68 points.

At close, it ended with a gain of 352.93 points, or 0.81%, to settle at 43,719.82.

“The sharp decline in global crude oil prices helped in reviving investors’ interest,” said Capital Stake in a note, after oil prices dropped to a two-week low as talks of a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine eased fears of further supply disruptions and surging COVID-19 cases in China raised concerns about fall in demand.
