Stocks on the country two bourses–Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) and Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE)– closed marginally lower yesterday, the first day after Eid-ul-Fitr holidays, reports BSS.

Trading and official activities on the bourses were closed from June 13 to June 17 on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the largest religious festival of the Muslims.

The presence of the investors was very thin on the trading floor of DSE yesterday.

Market turnover, a crucial indicator of the market, stood at Tk 485.90 crore on the DSE. The bourse traded a total of 7.25 crore shares on the day.

DSEX, the key index of the DSE, lost 23.93 points to settle at 5,341.30 over the previous session and the DS30 index, comprising blue chips, followed the same trend as it settled at 1941.87, losing 16.35 points. However, the DSE Shariah Index (DSES) gained 1.15 points to close at 1239.33.

Out of 334 issues traded, 125 closed higher, 175 closed lower and 34 issues remained unchanged on the DSE trading floor.

Top five gainers on the day were Monno Ceramics, BD Autocars, Alif Industries, Usmania Glass and Libra Infusion. Savar Refractories, Dulamia Cotton, Meghna Condensed Milk, Shepherd Industries and BEXIMCO Synthetics were the top five losers.

In the port city, CSE also closed downward with the CSE All Share Price Index – CASPI – lost 51.66 points to close at 16453.54.
