The analysts pointed out that the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) will announce its Monetary Policy Com­mittee (MPC) meeting on Dec 12 to set the benchmark interest rate for the next two months. There is a consensus that any upward revision is unlikely from the current policy rate of 22pc.

While most analysts anticipate no change in the current Monetary Policy Statement (MPS), any unexpected adjustment in interest rates — whether upward or downward — could have a significant impact on the market

Some analysts commented that the market seems currently in an “overbought territory” and was likely making corrections ; some however in near future, seeing the possibility of the index crossing the 74,000 milestone.

Today Mari Petroleum Company Limited (MARI) became the seventh listed company with over $1 billion market value. Mari ’s market capitalisation stood at Rs288.95 billion or over $1 billion.
