The Colombo stock market yesterday broke through the benchmark All Share Price Index’s 9,500-point psychological barrier as investors began a fresh week with improved sentiment though turnover was relatively low.

The ASPI gained by over 100 points or 1% to close the day at 9,542, establishing a new high for the CSE. However, the S&P SL20 index struggled and closed almost flat. Turnover was Rs. 3.6 billion involving 228.3 million shares.
