Voices: Karachi investor gloom Angry investors have attacked the Karachi Stock Exchange in protest at plunging Pakistani share prices. Investors who have made big losses and a witness to the protests describe the deepening gloom within the financial community. ANONYMOUS INVESTOR, KARACHI Aftermath of protest outside Islamabad stock exchange Protesters burned tyres outside the Islamabad exchange I have been affected badly affected by the share prices. My stock values have gone down a lot. This was an extra income I used to earn which no longer exists. So I feel the pressure. There are people who are really gloomy, who are finding it really hard - many get all their income from the stock market. That is what they do. They are in a terrible situation. I work in the stock market too as an investment analyst. Small investors started protesting and asking the market to be closed down. They were blaming the government for market manipulation. I think lots of small businesses will be forced to close down. I don't think the government is doing a good job in dealing with this. I don't think the stock market is their top priority now.
