The Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) continued with bearish trend in another low-volume session on Tuesday, with the benchmark KSE-100 Index shedding 104.79 points (-0.23 percent) to close at 45,507.41 points.

The market opened on a positive note but remained volatile due to the rising number of Omicron cases and surging crude oil prices.
