KARACHI: Pakistan’s main stock market closed slightly down on Tuesday after market gains in the previous session prompted selling.

The Karachi Stock Exchange benchmark 100-share index dropped 5.21 points, or 0.04 per cent, to close at 14,374.33 on volume of 65.46 million shares.

“Profit taking in key stocks led to the index closing slightly negatively,” said Samar Iqbal, a dealer at Topline Securities.
