Weak liquidity is still dominating PSE transactions, and in spite of the slightly improvement in the trading value last week but it is still below average from the beginning of this year. Trading value reached $3.00 million last week with a growth rate of %14.7 versus the previous week, but it is still below the average daily trading value for the first seven months by %53 ( Approximately $6.4 million). This growth is due to executing an institutional transaction that constituted approximately 4 million shares of PIBC that had valued over $6.00 million. Economists, analysts and brokers regarded the trading value decline that the PSE is vouching from two months to the noticeable decline in liquidity in all Arab markets due to investors" closing positions in order to get vacations. Locally, analysts noted that one of the biggest investment institutions in Palestine is concentrating its portfolio in stocks trading in aboard markets, which attained a severe decline in liquidity in the PSE. Other reason was the intensive campaigns of the working banks to attract deposits by launching great prizes on saving accounts .And added up is the difficult political situation and the continuous internal division without attaining any serious signals of termination. These factors had covered the relatively good results that the listed companies announced for the first half of the current year, where most of the companies were able to raise their income versus the first half of last year.
