PSX Gains 573 Points

KARACHI: Bulls maintained their grip on the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Tuesday as the benchmark KSE-100 index extended the rally with a 573-point surge.

Taking a cue from global markets, the investors opted to assume fresh positions. Further uptrend came on the back of expectations that the circular debt issue will be resolved soon, which sparked a buying spree in the oil and gas exploration sector, which closed in the green.

Today, at the close, the benchmark KSE-100 index surged by 572.72 points, or 1.32%, to close at 43,853.49 points.
