“Throughout the trading session, a total of 436 million shares changed hands, valued at Rs 15.2 billion. KEL stood out as the volume leader, trading around 53 million shares.”

The Ismail Iqbal Securities said that the benchmark index showed volatility throughout the day, primarily attributed to “foreign selling pressures” in the equity market.
