Since Tuesday, the government has relaxed the prohibition order in all but a few areas. The shops will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Some restaurants will stay open until 7 p.m.
The common effect of the opening of all sectors has been seen in the stock market. On April 30, the government issued a nationwide prohibitory order. As demand increased, all investment sectors came to a halt. People had free time as well.
In addition, the number of new entrants looking to invest in the stock market in their spare time has increased. Similarly, when other areas of investment were closed, investment in shares increased. As a result, by the third week of May, daily turnover had risen to approximately Rs 20 billion.
This month, long-term investors and stock market participants began taking profits as well. The stock market’s activity decreased as the prohibitory order was relaxed.
The government has reopened all but a few areas, including shops, businesses, and transportation, since Tuesday. As in the past, the transaction amount was limited to Rs 4.5 billion following the opening of all sectors.
