KARACHI – Pakistani rupee witnessed upward trajectory against the US dollar, as the local currency moves up during the opening hours of trading in the inter-bank market.

Last week, the local unit saw improvement as it appreciated Rs0.40 to settle at 284.97 against the US dollar in the inter-bank market.

Rupee moved up for third consecutive week as staff-level agreement (SLA) between Pakistan and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on first review of the $3 billion Stand-by Arrangement (SBA) changed the market sentiment.

In a similar development, Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) has seen a massive rise of nearly 20 percent and the highest investment in over five years depicts the country’s economic revival.

KSE-100 index surpassed 62,000 points milestone for the first time in history with another push of 770 points, reaching 62,461 points.
