NEPSE Index Surges by 2.71% on Falling Interest Rates and Increased Turnover


Today, the NEPSE index concluded at 1,942.63, marking a gain of 51.31 points from the previous trading day, representing a 2.71% increase. Yesterday, the index had gained 8.10 points. The trading day began at 1,891.37, which also served as the intraday low. However, the index reached a high of 1,942.64 before ultimately closing at 1,942.63.

A total of 271 scrips were traded through 38,796 transactions, with 6,067,432 shares changing hands, amounting to a turnover of Rs. 2.2 Arba. This turnover surpasses the previous trading day’s turnover of Rs. 1.278 Arba and marks the highest turnover in three months since February 26, 2023, when the turnover stood at Rs. 2.52 Arba.

The NEPSE index witnessed significant gains due to decreasing interest rates and a reduction in the CD ratio, which stands at 84.74, the lowest level this year. These factors contribute to increased investor confidence in the bearish market, potentially attracting new investors and additional brokers to foster market growth. Notably, the recent approval of licenses for seven new brokerage houses aligns well with this context and can be seen as beneficial for the market.

Shivam Cements Limited (SHIVM) recorded the highest turnover of Rs. 10.05 crores, closing at a market price of Rs. 436.50 per share. HIDCLP shares were the most actively traded during the session.

Four scrips experienced positive circuit limits for the day, indicating substantial upward movements. Conversely, Sunrise First Mutual Fund (SFMF) registered the highest decline of 2.00%.

All sector indices closed in the green, with the “Manufacturing And Processing” sector gaining the highest at 4.05%, while the “Mutual Fund” sector recorded the least gain of 0.55% for the day.
