Dhaka, Oct. 28 -- Stocks ended almost flat on Wednesday, after a sharp rise in the previous day, as investors adopted 'wait-and-see' strategy.

Following the previous day's strong comeback, the market started higher and the key index soared 60 points within the first hour of trading, but failed to sustain that level amid selling pressure on selective large-cap stocks.

Finally, DSEX, the key index of Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE), went up 6.10 points or 0.08 per cent to close at 7,011, after recovering more than 120 points in the previous day.

However, the DS30 index, comprising blue chips, fell sharply by 17.32 points to finish at 2,644 as its heavyweight British American Tobacco suffered most, contributing about 27 points fall of DSEX.
