T
he Egyptian Exchange (EGX) has been facing selling pressure on the big caps and is expected to continue during this week’s trading until positive news appears that pushes the index to re-target the resistance area of ​​12,000 points.
The benchmark index EGX30 closed at 11,731.71 points, recording a decline of 2.34% last week. The EGX70 EWI posted 1.14% loss, concluding the week at 2,208.76 points, and the S&P index declined by 1.88% and concluded the period at 1,897.1 points.

Mohamed Othman, the Head of the Technical Analysis Department at Al Ahly Pharos Holding, said the market is currently examining the key support level at 11,680 points, which represents a previous broken peak that turned into support.
In case of failure to maintain above the latter level, then the downward correction would extend to the next support at 11,500 points, which represents 61.8% of Fibonacci retracement (i.e., from “B” to “C”) compared with the previous upward move (i.e., from “A” to “B”). In this regard, he advises investors to make use of any rebound to sell rallies until a new bullish signal reappears.
