Muhammad Saad Ali, a capital market expert, said that KSE100 has risen 48% since June.

Commenting on the recent positive rally, he said: “Recently the rally has extended after the IMF positive review, good macro data reinforcing the market outlook for rate cuts in Dec MPC while global oil prices are under pressure and PKR-USD has stabilised.”

The market also rallied positively on Monday as stocks continued their record-breaking run with the benchmark index closing just shy of the 60,000-point mark.

Analysts said the equities market has been thriving since the successful first review with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which will lead to the release of the next loan tranche.
