Optimism in the PEX with the start of October


Sahem Weekly trading report (01-05)-10-2017

Quds Index succeeded to breakthrough the 570 points level barrier this week, in which rebounded from in the last week of September, to close at the level of 578.09 points; up noticeably by 1.81% than its previous weekly closing level with attempts to breakthrough new psychological barrier after increasing the trading activity on the stock of Wataniya Palestine Mobile Telecommunication Company WATANIYA- the fourth heaviest weighted stock in the Index, in which contributes for around 8.70% from its weight-. This followed the glimmer of hope in the political arena after the initiatives to resolve the split conflict between Fatah and Hamas which lasted for several years. With the conflict resolving, efforts are being made to develop the natural gas field  “Gaza Marine” that has been explored several years ago; as a turning  and essential point to restructure the Palestinian energy sector and impose the national sovereignty over the development and exploitation of the Palestinian natural resources. Whereby, developing this natural gas field will increase the economic movement in the Strip and provide benefit to the population  by offering thousands of jobs, in addition to solving the crisis of gas scarcity controlled by the Occupation.
