Ahsan Mehanti at Shehzad Chamdia Securities said, Fall in international oil prices, uncertainty over federal Budget announcements next month and limited foreign interest in blue chip scrips played a catalyst role in negative activity at the KSE. Although money supply situation has shown improvement along with strong conviction shown by government to address circular debt, and substantial reduction in international oil prices (if the decline stays consistent only then it can have a positive impact on the economy) has reduced some worries of the local investors, the liquid participants will however continue to stay cautious, ahead of CGT implementation.
