The Istanbul Stock Exchange (IMKB) continued to break records yesterday, hitting 60,950.85 points for the first time in its history in the first session of trading. The index started off yesterday with gains, rising by 330.14 points, or 0.55 percent, in the first trading session compared to the closing of the previous day. The highest in-session value the index reached was 60,718.93 points on Wednesday, the day when it also registered a record high closing of 60,404.33 points. The last time the index hit a record at closure was with 60,328 points on the previous day.
