With the Stock Market being on an upward trajectory with the All Share Price Index (ASPI) closing at 6,313.20 with a 6.8 per‐cent increase and the S&P SL20 closing at 3,490.67 with a 6.9 percent increase, (as of today) it is an ideal opportunity for investors to grow their funds through prudent investment, CSE said.
