The Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) and Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE) rose on Thursday halting a three-day falling streak as investors returned to buying mode, dealers said.
DSEX, the prime index of  DSE rose by  5.7 points up to  4573.75, up 24 points higher than the closing of the previous week. Similarly, the blue-chip DS30 ended week up at 1729.64 and the Shariah DSES at 1101.15.
"Market passed a volatile period this week with increased sell pressure as investors prompted to cash in on stocks and remain in sideline amid weak economic condition. Though stocks made a positive penning, quick correction in the middle of the week eroded the early gain," said the Lanka Bangla Securities Limited.
