2019-12-05

 Sahem Weekly Trading Report (01-05)-12-2019

In the first week of the last month of the year 2019, Al-Quds Index ended its trading in the green zone, to close at the level of 526.84 points; up by 1.02% than its previous weekly closing, amid more weighting to the positive price trends of the blue-chips, in which most of them witnessed increasing in their prices during the week versus a stabilization in the prices of others around their previous weekly closing level. On another hand, a transaction was executed on the stocks of Ramallah Summer Resorts Company RSR of 0.18 million shares in the week and two transactions of 0.08 million shares were executed on the stocks of the largest company in Palestine Stock Exchange PEX by market capitalization- Palestine Telecommunication PALTEL-. However, the general liquidity in the PEX was scarce – if we exclude the transactions- amid lack of the general drivers and decline in the investors’ appetite that was touched through the slow transactions. On the other hand, the leading stocks acquired the majority of trading in thePEX despite its scarceness, and in parallel to the routine anticipation of the trading types for the end of the year.
