THE MARKET ON MONDAY (4 July 2016): Speculation that further devaluation of the official exchange rate may be in the works sent the benchmark EGX30 up 2.9% last Monday (the final trading session last week before the start of the Eid holiday). As noted in the Monday edition of Enterprise, Amer told the domestic press that defending the EGP over the past five years had been a mistake. Blue-chip CIB, a proxy for Egypt and fast approaching its GDR cap, accounted for nearly 27% of all turnover on Monday. Significant gainers included SODIC (up 9.9%), South Valley Cement (+9.2%) and Talaat Moustafa Group (+0.1%); Juhayna and Edita were the only EGX30 constituents to close in the red, losing less than 1% each. With total market turnover at EGP 607.1 mn, foreign investors were the sole net sellers of the day.
