“There were more than one investor moral boosters,” said a leading stock analyst, Faisal Abbas at Rajabali Alihussin securities. “But the chief among them appears to be market talk of another half a per cent cut in the discount rate in the next central bank meeting and the perception of good days ahead”.
He said upper locks both in the banking giant National Bank and Engro Corporation at the current lower levels provided a major takeoff point for others to follow suit on other counters.The market still may have some psychological depressants but the perception of peace in the city is getting due consideration by the investors as was reflected by an increase in the volume figure.
Ashraf Zakaria, another leading analyst, hold the same view about the future share business outlook and hoped the current lower levels on most of the blue chip counter provide an attractive bait for the prospective investors.
“The economy may not be in a good shape”, he said and added that the perception of peace in the city being the chief worry of investors could significantly add to inherent strength of the market in the coming sessions.
How the foreign investors, some of whom are already in the market, will view the significant change in investor psychology could well play a leading role in the market`s future direction, another analyst Ahsan Mehanti said.
