According to stock market analysts, despite recent simmering Pak-India tensions and the current uncertain political situation in the country, investors have shown interest in the stock market due to a likely fall in interest rates.
Earlier, economists were of the view that since the passage of the financial budget for the fiscal year 2019-20, the stringent policies would reflect themselves in what they termed “the downfall of the stock market.”
