Gains in some Insurance counters; CORNESRTONE(+889bps), LAWUNION(+870bps) & LASACO(+385bps) and Tier 1 banking names; GUARANTY(+77bps) and ACCESS(+60bps) were not enough to take the market to a positive close as the ASI closed down 58pbs.

What will shape the market tomorrow?
The market continues to experience strong volatility as we see mixed trading patterns. We have also seen a decent level of participation from local institutional investors largely in the Tier 1 Banking space in recent trading sessions. Tier 1 banks should continue to enjoy investor's patronage as we foresee similar trading pattern in the next trading session.
