KARACHI: The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) plummeted by over 1,300 points on Monday during the intraday trading as uncertainty surrounded the formation of a new government.

KSE-100 nosedives over 1,300 points during intraday trade

The PSX on Friday plummeted over 2,000 points initially due to the uncertain outcome of the general elections held on February 8.

However, the market managed to recoup some losses by the day’s end, closing 1.87% lower at 62,943 points.

Market analysts, such as Muhammad Sohail of Topline Securities, attributed the initial decline to the “unexpected” election results, which deviated from pre-election expectations.

This uncertainty triggered a massive sell-off, with the benchmark KSE-100 index losing 3% at its lowest point.
