The key indices of the country's two main bourses have continued its downward trend for the third consecutive day since lockdown lifted amid fears of coronavirus infection which crossed 50,000-mark yesterday.
Under the current circumstances, most investors are not interested to buy 301 company's share due to floor price limitation.
Some brokerage official said, "Many investors want to sell their shares in floor price but the floor price of each share is much higher within last five days average price. Therefore, buyers are not interested to invest on higher floor price."
