The Egyptian Exchange (EGX) will seek to breach the resistance level of 12,000 points during this week’s trading.
Mohamed Othman, Head of the Technical Analysis Department at Pharos Holding, said that the current market conditions are getting stronger.
He also said that the market is ready for further advances towards the resistance level at 12,000 points and then 12,500 points.
Othman noted that the positive viewpoint remains intact as long as the benchmark index EGX30 keeps trading above the support level which lies at 11,400 points. In case of declines, it will be seen as a temporary profit taking operation, and should be used as a buying dips opportunity owing to the bias towards a bullish scenario.
