According to a Senior Analyst at JS Global Capital “Market is suffering from lack of clarity; with the JIT and Supreme Court proceedings and political noise the market is witnessing a limited activity”

“Valuations are very attractive at the moment, yesterday’s (18th July +1113.5 points) support can be attributed to value buying in the market as the index has fallen more than 7percent in the incumbent year. Prices are very lucrative at the present moment”

Commenting on the uncertain time with respect to the market, he said “The market is moving within a limited range and the limited activity which only goes on to show the lack of participation from investors who are holding back with the political future of the country hanging in balance.”

Observing the Monetary Policy to be announced on Saturday, he said, “We forecast a status-quo in Central Bank’s stance in the next policy announcement.”
