KSE-100 Index Breaks Historic 70,000 Mark

The Pakistan Stock Exchange experienced an extraordinary surge as the benchmark KSE-100 index surged past the monumental 70,000 mark for the first time in its history.

The bullish trend, steadily gaining momentum, reached its zenith as the index soared by 511 points, representing a remarkable increase of 0.73 percent, and reached an astounding 70,131 points around 9:41 am. Analysts attribute this remarkable upswing to a combination of positive factors that have propelled investor confidence to unprecedented levels.

This milestone achievement follows a series of record-breaking milestones in recent days.

The momentum of this historic rally can be attributed to a myriad of factors that have bolstered investor optimism. The successful conclusion of general elections, alongside the anticipation of interest rate cuts and substantial inflows from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has injected renewed vigor into the stock market. Furthermore, the government’s proactive measures to restructure and privatize Pakistan International Airlines Corp (PIAA) have further galvanized investor sentiment, underscoring a broader commitment to economic reform and revitalization.

The broader market sentiment remained buoyant, with the All-Share index reflecting a net gain of 273.20 points, reaching 45,970.39. Notably, the fiscal year has witnessed an extraordinary surge of 28,684 points, translating to a remarkable 69.2% increase. Similarly, the ongoing calendar year has seen a cumulative rise of 7,686 points, marking a substantial 12.31% upswing.

As the Pakistan Stock Exchange continues to scale new heights, investors are poised with anticipation, eagerly awaiting further developments and milestones in this remarkable journey of economic resurgence and prosperity.
