Raza Jafri, the head of equities at Intermarket Securities, noted that investors are closely monitoring the government’s strong focus on economic development and the recent strengthening of the Pakistani rupee. These factors have generated expectations that interest rates may have reached their peak.

Jafri added, “While there may be instances of profit-taking due to the rapid rally, a successful IMF review could propel the KSE-100 towards a new all-time high.”
