Dhaka — Amid strict lockdown from July 5 from 10 am to 1 pm, trading in the capital market will be open only in digital mode. The government imposed strict restrictions on Thursday (July 1) from 6 am to midnight on July 7 to curb the rise in coronavirus. As a result, all institutions and transactions related to the capital market will be closed on July 1 and 4.
No investor can physically attend any institution. The Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC), the regulator of the capital market has directed that stock market transactions be allowed to continue after the government imposes restrictions.
Besides, BSEC has arranged special passes for the movement of employees of capital market-related organizations under strict restrictions.
The passage signed by BSEC Chairman Prof. Shibli Rubaiyat-ul-Islam states that for the information of all concerned, the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission and all capital market related institutions will remain operational as financial institutions during the imposition of restrictions on movement by the Cabinet Division. Which will be effective from 5 July.
