ZSE Extends Bull Run On Improved Sentiment

The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange continued its bull run this Tuesday afternoon as sentiment continues to improve on exchange rate stability and substantial profits being posted by listed firms after the bourse suffered heavy losses for the better part of the second half of the year.

The market however remains subdued but a change of investor confidence in the past month or so has seen it recover with analysts predicting a strong finish to the year. Market watchers say the positive sentiment is attributed to the stability in the exchange rate market which has seen the difference between the Zimbabwe dollar and the USD narrow to below 15 percent from over 80 percent in June on the parallel market.

Mashonaland Holdings limited gained $2.3197 to $17.8000 whilst Seed Co Limited went up by $1.1000 to $72.2500.
