The Ghana Stock Exchange made a modest gain on Tuesday with the GSE-All-Share Index, the benchmark measure going up 3.71 points in a dull market.

The index, which made very impressive gains, last week, closed at 1,847.91 points from 1,844.20 points at the previous close on Friday.

Only 39,100 shares changed hands in a dull market that saw just five out of the 25 listed equities selling shares, a drop from 146,300 shares on Friday.

On the broader market, there were two price changes - all positive. Accra Brewery Limited gained 19 cedis at 450 cedis and Guinness Ghana Limited was up 50 cedis at 2,250 cedis.

Market capitalisation hit 8,001.69 billion cedis compared to 7,992.66 billion cedis during the last trading session. The change in the year to date now stands at 32.44 per cent.
