Trading will be held between 10am and 12:30pm

The capital market will operate on a limited scale during the weeklong lockdown that starts from Wednesday.

Trading will be held between 10am and 12:30pm from Wednesday to April 21, according to a fresh directive by the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC).

As per the central bank's direction, the banks will remain open from 9:30am to 1:30pm during the lockdown, the regulator said in press statement.

In line with that, the commission has also extended the share trading schedule, the statement adds.

Bangladesh is set to enforce a strict lockdown from Wednesday to April 21 in order to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country.

During the lockdown, no one will be allowed to move outside their homes. All private, autonomous and government offices will remain shut. No vehicles will be allowed to ply roads either, except for emergency services.

In emergency cases, people will be allowed to venture outdoors upon securing a movement pass from the authorities.
