The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange has extended its trading hours to allow more stock purchases.

ZSE whose mandate is bringing together companies looking for long-term capital and investors looking for profitable investment opportunities has been growing at a fast rate this 2021.

This has been necessitated by its focus on attracting small-scale investors, who are buying stocks for as low as ZWL$1000.

Young people are seeing the stock market as a safe investment avenue.

In the past, the ZSE would be open Monday to Fridays from 09:30 to 1200 hours.

However, there have been added times which kick into effect on January 1.

They are as follows:

Preopen 0900-0930 hours 30 minutes

Market Open 0930 hours

Continuous 0930-1300 hours 3 hours 30 minutes

Market Close 1300 hours

Post-close 1300-1330 hours 30 minutes.
