The NEPSE (Nepal Stock Exchange) index concluded today’s trading session at 1,919.37 points, marking an impressive gain of 53.03 points from the previous closing. This increase translates to a growth rate of 2.84%. Last Thursday, the index had experienced a gain of 16.54 points.

Interestingly, despite the market being scheduled to open at 11:00 am this morning, all 50 current brokers were still non-operational. In light of this situation, a meeting was arranged with relevant stakeholders at the Ministry of Finance’s Singhadurbar headquarters. During the meeting, Dr. Prakash Sharan Mahat, the current finance minister, emphasized that investors should remain calm and assured them that the only tax applicable to profits from trading shares would be the Capital Gain Tax (CGT).

The trading day commenced with the index opening at 1,866.35 points. At its lowest point in the intraday session, it reached 1,865.73 points. However, it experienced a significant surge, reaching as high as 1,925.11 points before ultimately closing at 1,919.37 points. These fluctuations throughout the day reflect the dynamic nature of the stock market and the varying levels of investor activity and sentiment.

Overall, the NEPSE index’s upward movement and the reassurances provided by the finance minister aim to instill confidence among investors and maintain stability in the market. Investors will continue to closely monitor the performance of the index and make informed decisions based on the prevailing market conditions.
