Trying times for Dhaka investors

Monday's crash at the Dhaka Stock Exchange wiped out $9bn off the markets.


    Investors in Bangladesh have breathed a sigh of relief as the Dhaka stock exchange went up by more than 15 per cent on Tuesday.

    Just a day earlier, a crash wiped $9bn off the markets and triggered violent clashes between angry investors and police.

    Individul investors make up 75 per cent of investors in the Dhaka stock exchange, and they have the most to lose if the market goes down.
