The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Monday snapped its eight-session losing spell and the KSE-100 index rose 1.31% owing to a steep recovery in the rupee against the US dollar on the back of improved sentiment in the currency market.

As a result, the KSE-100 finished the day with an increase of 531.33 points or 1.31% to close at 41,151.54.

Trading began on a positive note and the KSE-100 Index maintained its ascent throughout the session. The market crossed the 41,000-point mark in the second half.

A report from Capital Stake stated that taking a break from the bleak sessions of the previous week, the PSX ended the session on Monday in green.

“The day kicked off on a positive note over declining international commodities prices and strengthening rupee over dollar led the market to make an intraday high of 576 points,” the report said.

On the economic front, local rupee recovered Rs2.63 or 1.1% against the US dollar on day-on-day basis closing the session at Rs237.
