KASB Tech Index   386.03▲2.98%


  KASB Market View


  • Fall in international oil prices amidst possible global recession would provide support to country's external account. We expect the market to react positively to this development.
  • Monetary policy is expected tomorrow and the industry is expecting a hike of 100 - 150bps hike. Cyclical sectors especially autos and cements would face the brunt of it.
  • We recommend defensive sectors including Banks and Fertilizer.
