Investors lose Sh330bn as stock market hits 2 year low

07 December 2011, 14:19

Share prices at the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) extended a month- long drop to hit a two- year low, pulled down by investor concerns over the possible impact of high interest rates on the market’s performance.

On Tuesday, the NSE 20 Share Index, which tracks the 20 most valued equities at the bourse, closed at 3,070.36 points, edging closer to levels last seen in September 2009.

The plummeting of share prices appears to have picked pace in the past four weeks in reaction to the Central Bank’s decision to aggressively tighten monetary policy to tame inflation and exchange rate volatility.
