The Pakistan Stock Market’s (PSX) KSE100 index starts off the week on a negative note with high pressure selling continued on Monday. The selling was further fuelled by the recent drone attack on US troops. The index lost (484.94) points in the previous session.

Similarly, the energy and commodity markets responded to the drone attack. The global oil market has kicked off the week with a significant uptick in prices, driven by supply disruptions resulting from a drone attack on U.S. forces stationed in Jordan.

As previously mentioned, KSE-100 index also faced resistance in a technical perspective. Moreover, the elections uncertainty and Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) meeting of the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) today has also kept investors on the back-foot.
