DURING the week Dar es Salaam stock exchange all-share index (DSEI), moved upwards mainly due to share price increase of Kenyan listed companies.
The total market size increased by 137.81bn/-while the domestic market decreased by 0.24bn/-.
In the coming week, with the uncertainty of Covid-19 foreign investor’s participation in the market is farfetched to happen, we anticipate local investors to dominate the market and the performance to be maintained by the active local counters in terms of volume, turnover, and price movements in the bourse.
