Investors have confidently poured money to buy shares as the government eased the ongoing strict lockdown for seven days ahead of Eid-ul-Adha and also decided to resume the mass inoculation programme for Covid-19 across the country.
As a result, the key index DSEX of the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) charged up by 0.92% to close at 6,266 points on Tuesday. This is the highest mark for the DSEX to reach in the last three and a half years.
The blue-chip index DS30 of the DSE also gained 0.65% to reach 2,273 points.
EBL Securities said in its daily market review, the previous day's marginal correction prompted investors to exert buying pressure at a lucrative price level as investors are much relaxed on the trading bourse due to the easing of nationwide restrictions ahead of Eid.
But the worries of investors may be widened by the adverse impact on the economy from the instruction of the cabinet ministry to close all industries including garments for two weeks after Eid, it added.
The DSE turnover also increased by 4% to stand at Tk1,668.51 crore on Tuesday compared to the previous trading day.
During Tuesday's session, 212 companies' share prices advanced, 129 declined and 32 remained unchanged at the DSE.
