It was a rather quiet day for local equities on Friday. The PFTS index lost 0.1%, with BAVL (-0.2%) and CEEN (-0.5%) retreating on slim turnover. Abroad, foreign-listed names traded mixed but mostly in positive territory: AST added 3.1%, KER inched 0.1% up on impressive $12m turnover, IMC closed flat and MHP lost 3.2% to close at $12. We saw decent volatility in FXPO, which was trading in the GBp 178.96-189.08 range and closed 6.0% higher. As a result, the broader KP-Dragon index rose by 0.6% for the day. With Asian indices and global futures trading lower, we expect a weaker opening today.
