According to the stock market analysts  same trend will continue till the announcement of the Federal budget 2014-15.They believe that any negative news about the CGT or any other tax can cause negative triggers in the market.Political instability can also affect the proceedings of the Karachi stock market.So stock investors should hold their positions  till the announcement of the Federal budget 2014-15.
