Dhaka stocks close flat

BSS, Dhaka

Country’s capital bourse, Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE), closed in flat yesterday after two days of post Eid winning sessions.

Market witnessed greater volatility though it started with positive note, but failed to keep momentum as investors booked some profits with cautious stances.

According to an operator, EBL Securities, investors were anxious of the possibility of extra liquidity pressure on the money market for the recent move taken by Bangladesh Bank regarding cash reserve ratio (CRR) and statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) rules for offshore banking operations of scheduled banks.

The core index, DSEX closed at 5,227.5 points with a marginal gain of 0.23 points only. The Shariah index, DSES stood at 1204.75 points, up by 2.23 points while blue-chip index, DS30 stood at 1845.54 points, down by 1.71 points.

Sector wise performance exposed that Telecommunication (3.4 per cent), Paper (1.7 per cent) and Travel & Leisure (1.6 per cent) sector experienced highest price appreciation while Jute (-0.7 per cent, Bank (-0.5 per cent) and Financial Institutions (-0.4 per cent) sector experienced highest price correction in today’s session.

Investors’ attention was mostly concentrated on Pharmaceutical and Chemicals (16.0 per cent), Textile (14.4 per cent), and Fuel and Power (13.8 per cent) sectors.

Besides, the port city bourse, Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE) closed in red zone today. CSCX & CASPI decreased by 15.92 and 22.40 points respectively to stand at 9702.85 points and 15976.53 points.
