DHAKA, Dec 4 (BSS) - Share prices at the Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) continued to fall today when the trading resumed after weekends.
Like before, the 12-hour BNP-sponsored shutdown did not have any negative impact on the automated trading system, but share transaction remained slim because of investors' lackluster participation.
The benchmark index dropped further to 5161.23 at the day's close, which was 75.52 points or 1.44 percent lower than last week's closing of 5236.75 on Thursday.
The daily turnover, however, rose marginally to Taka 210 crore from last week's closing of Taka 195 crore.
A total of 215 issues suffered loss today when 20 advanced and 14 remained static.
According to the weekly update of the investment firm Aims Bangladesh, last week weighted average market PE (Price earning) was 13.65, which was 3.87 percent lower than previous week's 14.20.
During the week, DSE General Price Index was beneath both 9 and 18-day moving average line.
