In the second week of the last month of the year 2021, Al-Quds Index broke-through the 600 points barrier and rebounded from, to close at the level of 597.97 points; slightly down by 0.003% than its previous weekly closing level after trading in a relatively narrow range.  However, the general liquidity in Palestine Stock Exchange PEX was scarce amid lack of the general drivers and institutional transactions that may increase the trading value in the PEX from time to time and decline in the investors’ appetite that was touched through the slow transactions.
