DSE begins week fallen

The Dhaka Stock Exchange, the country’s prime bourse, tumbled 2.5 per cent on Sunday.

Its largest fall since March 18 last year, led by high-flying stocks Beximco Pharma, Beximco and Mir Akhter.

DSEX, the benchmark index of the DSE, dropped 142.88 points to settle at 5,504.

Anxious investors opted for sell-offs across all the sectors after the securities regulator last week formed a two-member committee to investigate the role of market operators behind the unusual price hike of shares of newly-listed companies.
