Sri Lankan share prices fell Tuesday for the second day after a seven-day rally, with turnover boosted by large deals in Aitken Spence, brokers said.

 

The main All Share Price Index closed down 0.82 percent (44.92 points) at 5,431.67, while the more liquid Milanka index fell 0.71 percent (33.96 points) to close at 4,719.43.

 

Turnover was 5.86 billion rupees, according to stock exchange provisional figures.

 

Most of the turnover came from two large deals in Aitken Spence at 115 rupees a share.
