On Tuesday, equities trading at the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange ended bullish to halt one day’s negative outing. The All Share Index therefore inched up by 0.02% to stand at 13,772.01 points.

The Zimbabwean dollar depreciated by a marginal 1.11% against the greenback to $646.24 at Tuesday’s weekly auction.

But, with the gap between the official and black-market exchange rates closing, the local currency is displaying indications of stabilization, giving rise to optimism that Zimbabwe’s runaway inflation may slow.
