Additionally, exchange-traded funds, fertilizer, food and personal care products, insurance, investment banks, and securities companies faced selling pressure.

Market experts attributed the selling pressure to a correction phase following the PSX’s remarkable growth in recent weeks, reaching record highs of over 67,000 points. They emphasized that the correction was deemed healthy and temporary, expressing confidence that the market would rebound soon based on strong fundamentals and a positive outlook.

This decline followed a negative close on Friday, where the PSX had lost nearly 1,000 points amid increased volatility.
