BSEC imposes a floor price on all listed companies
BSEC has decided to impose a floor price on all listed companies on the Dhaka stock exchange market. This was done to protect the general investors. In the past, floor prices were set at the face value of shares of fixed-price method companies, the cut-off price of book-building method companies, and the last trading price of companies from the over-counter market.
Although Bangladesh’s stock market has experienced improvements in recent years, further reforms are needed to make it more competitive and efficient. Further, strengthening the payment system and the central depository is crucial. Demutualization of exchanges should also be strongly considered as a reform option. Furthermore, strengthening the government’s capacity to manage its cash and debt is another important step to improve the efficiency of secondary markets. BSEC should also revamp its IT platforms and develop a governance structure to combat malfeasance in the market.
Extended trading hours
The Dhaka Stock Exchange has recently extended its trading hours. Now, traders can trade in the market on Sunday and Monday, instead of Monday through Thursday. This is in line with the Middle Eastern work week, which runs from Sunday to Thursday. The new trading hours will be effective today.
Excess liquidity and a lack of alternative investments were a boon for the stock market. Investors were largely reassured by recent efforts by the Bangladesh Bank to ease the stock market. These included issuing BB bills, raising the deposit rate to minimum inflation, and daily reporting of banks’ stock market investments. These moves boosted the market price and led to an all-time high in the DSE’s market capitalisation on Monday.
