Pakistan exchanges stay closed

PAKISTAN - Financial market regulators in Pakistan have announced that the country's three stock exchanges will remain closed until next week.

The exchanges have not traded since Monday 17 September.

Regulators are concerned that when the markets do re-open, heavy selling will take place, prompted by expectations of military retaliation for the terrorist attacks in the US
