Bourses start trading amid all-out lockdown

Stock markets remain open although all government, semi-government, autonomous and private offices closed due to the all-out lockdown announced by the government to contain the further spread of coronavirus in the country.

The two stock markets (Dhaka Stock Exchange-DSE and Chattogram Stock Exchange-CSE) have started trading at 10:00am on Thursday (April 15) on day 2 of the countrywide lockdown.

Sources at the DSE and CSE came up with the information.

While talking on the issue, Mohammad Rezaul Karim, executive director at the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC), said, “Stock markets are open as banks are operating their activities. Stock markets will continue their trading from 10:00am to 12:30pm.”
