ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka stocks closed 0.08 percent higher amidst buying interest in John Keells Holdings, while the rupee slipped to a new low against the US dollar and gilt yields edged higher, market participants said.

Market turnover was 200.98 million rupees amidst thin trading volumes with 46 stocks gaining during the day against 54 that declined.

John Keells Holdings (up 2.50 rupees to 133.30 rupees), LOLC Holdings (up 3.10 rupees to 85.60 rupees) and Sampath Bank (up 4.10 rupees to 224.10 rupees) contributed to the benchmark index gain.

Net foreign selling was 59.3 million rupees, up marginally from selling of 59.2 million rupees the previous day.
