A senior investment advisor attached to the Sampath Securities said that retail market activities in the Colombo Stock Exchange showed signs of improvement yesterday.

This is with the current uncertain situation in some parts of the country retuning to normalcy. The recent sectarian violence, took place in some parts of the island over the last two –three days had a profound impact on movement of the stock exchange activities, especially net- foreign purchases particularly on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Turnover dropped notably as volume also declined while a low foreign participation led to a meagre net foreign inflow into the market while All Share Price Index had a downward trend during the same period.
