What can you send “to the moon”

The EGX has changed up its list of shares eligible for same-day trading, margin trading and short-selling as part of its biannual rebalancing, the bourse said in a statement (pdf) yesterday. The number of companies on the EGX’s category ‘A’ list (pdf) — which permits same-day trading and margin trading with up to 100% collateral — has risen to 143 from 129. There are now 33 companies on the ‘B’ list (pdf) — which allows same-day trading and margin trading with up to 80% collateral — down from 38 previously. Meanwhile, the EGX increased the list of securities eligible for short selling to 63 (pdf) from 53. The changes are effective as of today’s trading session.
