Stock Market rises with appointment of the new Government

The appointment of the new Government has triggered positivism and sent traders at Sri Lanka’s Colombo Stock Exchange into a buying spree.
The Colombo Stock Exchange opened sharply up with both indices up, albeit on thin volumes and managed to sustain this momentum at close.
The All Share Index went up by 1.88 per cent to stand at 5,941.31 by 2.30 pm with the S & P Index going up by 1.89 per cent to stand at 3,053.96 points.
