CSE to remain closed

Colombo-Stock-Exchange

Mar 19, 2020 (LBO) – The Colombo stock market will remain closed for the fourth consecutive day Thursday although an announcement was made that the market will resume today.

The market has been closed all week to assist in curbing the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the safety of all market participants.

This was in line with the Government’s decision on Saturday to declare Monday as a special holiday, followed by the late Monday night decision to declare a special three-day holiday from Tuesday onwards.

Twice last week the trading at the CSE was halted due to the indexes experiencing heavy losses.
