The KSE-100 recorded a gain of 521.17 points or 1.21% on a week-on-week basis, but total weekly market volume went down to 575 million shares, showing a decline of almost 295 million shares.

A couple of key events on Monday promised a positive start to the week. The current account deficit figures published for Feb 2022 showed an improvement of almost 78% and signing of a landmark agreement between federal government, Balochistan government and two international firms raised expectations that Pakistan may not end up paying a penalty of $11 billion in the Reko Diq case.

However, this positivity was not enough to raise investor participation as was indicated by declining weekly volume. Investors continued to hold back owing to uncertain political environment around the no confidence vote.
