Inflationary pressures have eased on the back of declining food inflation, non-food non-fuel (NFNF) inflation remained stable in Q3, reflecting muted demand pressures in the economy.


The NSE-20 and NASI declined by 4.2% and 11% respectively led by sell off in blue-chip counters such as KCB Bank, Equity Bank and Safaricom. Overall, investor risk appetite remains muted due to the tough macroeconomic environment and high interest rates in the money markets.
