KARACHI: The Pakistan bourse witnessed a rollercoaster ride on Friday due to the rising political temperature in the country.
The Index opened in the red territory due to the political unrest and further rupee depreciation against dollar. The market remained volatile throughout the day, an analyst at Arif Habib Limited said.
“However, a rally in UBL and MCB was witnessed due to the expectation of foreign selling spree in the banking sector getting over. The cement sector remained in the limelight due to a decline in the international coal prices. In the second session, value buying was witnessed which led the index to close in the green zone,” he added.
