Pakistan Stock Market

Market opened on a positive note but profit taking was witnessed in the last trading hour after consecutive bullish sessions for last two days. HASCOL hit its upper circuit due to optimism of investors towards better 4th quarter earnings as OMC margins have been approved. Cherat Packaging (CPPL) witnessed euphoric growth due to cost reduction program and expanding sales pool to Africa and Europe region. Finally MARI hit its lower lock in the last hour after its rally towards north took a U-turn. Going forward, we expect market to rally further as space is still left caused by recent discount rate cut.
