Cavmont Bank market report for Wednesday obtained by ZANIS business in Lusaka today stated that the market remained subdued in yesterday’s trading session.


The report further stated that in view of the current market trends, the Kwacha is likely to strengthen further as corporate buyers hold off expecting a stronger rally from the local currency.
