JKH was the most traded stock on the floor closing Rs. 1.70 up at Rs.229 with over 0.2 million shares done between Rs.228 and Rs.230 contributing Rs.57.3 million to turnover. Most of the trades were in smaller lots, brokers said.

JKH warrants too were actively traded with W0022 closing Rs.6.10 up at Rs.86.10 on nearly 0.3 million and W0023 closing Rs.2.50 up at Rs.97 on 0.1 million

Chevron closed Rs.1.20 up at Rs.269 on over 0.2 million shares done between Rs.267.70 and Rs.270 contributing Rs.56.8 million to turnover. Two big parcels accounted for much of the trades.

LIOC, trading mostly in smaller lots, closed Rs.2.20 up at Rs.35.30 on over 0.9 million shares contributing Rs.31.5 million to turnover. The counter traded between Rs.33.40 and Rs.36.

Distilleries closed Rs.6 up at Rs.199 on over 0.1 million shares contributing Rs.26.2 million to turnover while HNB (voting) closed Rs.3 up at Rs.150 on over 0.1 million shares generating Rs.19.2 million business volume.
