TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: QE INDEX AND KEY STOCKS TO CONSIDER QE Index: Short-Term – Neutral Al Rayan Islamic Index: Short-Term – Neutral Gulf International Services: Short-Term – Upmove The QE Index witnessed a gap-down opening and continued its decline penetrating below the 11,600.0 psychological level. The index touched its intraday low of 11,491.44, but the mid-day surge helped it recover the majority of its losses. On the downside the index has strong support near 11,520.0, which is also in proximity to the 21-day moving average. We believe if the index can stabilize near this level it could set the stage for a rebound and may resume its upmove. The QERI Index rebounded and snapped its losing streak gaining around 0.64% to close the session at 3,364.23. The index momentarily dipped below the support of 3,329.75. However, the index witnessed some buying strength which pushed it above the 3,350.0 level. Traders are advised to wait and watch if there is any further follow-through to yesterday’s gains. The index needs to move above 3,382.68 to gain further momentum, or else it may consolidate. GISS breached the resistances of QR85.80 and the descending trendline, which had restricted its bullish move over the past few days in a single swoop which is a positive sign. We believe if the stock manages to cling onto its support of QR85.80, traders could witness a further upmove toward QR88.0. A decline below QR85.80 may result in a pullback toward QR84.60. Meanwhile, with a spurt in volumes and the RSI moving up, a short-term rally may not be ruled out. Nakilat: Short-Term – Breakout Milaha: Short-Term – Upmove Vodafone Qatar: Short-Term – Downmove QGTS cleared the important resistance of QR21.83 and rebounded after witnessing selling pressure over the past few days. Moreover, the stock respected its support of QR21.44 on Monday and continued its rebound yesterday. We believe with the RSI showing bullish divergence, QGTS could continue to march ahead and test QR22.19. If QGTS manages to move above QR22.19, it could spark additional buying interest and advance toward the QR22.45 level. QNNS surpassed the stiff resistance of the descending trendline and moved higher yesterday. With volumes picking up, we believe QNNS may be ready for a move above QR95.10 targeting the QR96.50 level. Moreover, the stock has support for a higher move from the RSI which is moving up in a bullish manner. However, any failure to move above the QR95.10 level may result in consolidation and the stock may test the support of the descending trendline. VFQS penetrated below the support of QR12.09 on the back of large volumes. Moreover, the stock has been moving along the descending trendline over the past few days and is in declining mode. We believe although the stock is trading close to the support of the 21-day moving average, it is unlikely that VFQS will cling onto it and decline further to test QR11.60. Meanwhile, the RSI and the MACD lines are proving bearish signals indicating the weakness may continue. Page 1 of 2

The table on page 2 has been provided to denote historical movements in certain stocks. The historical trend analysis uses 21- and 55day SMAs for indicating short-term and long-term trends, respectively. Based on these SMAs, the historical direction of the trend is denoted as UP, DOWN or FLAT. Selection of Key Stocks of the Day: Key stocks’ selection is based on our analysis of 19 members of the QE Index (excludes QNBK QD). Analysis includes identifying trends (short-term as well as long-term), patterns and support/resistance levels. Trend Direction: The methods used to determine trend direction are subjective in nature. We use 21-day SMA and 55-day SMA, absolute price movements, price movements relative to SMAs and accurately drawn trend lines and chart patterns to determine the short- and long-term trends. Investment Horizon: The definition of short term and long term depends upon investors’ preferences and their investment objectives. As a rule of thumb, the time horizon for traders/short-term trend is 1-3 weeks while it is 1-3 months for investors/long-term trend. Combining Technical and Fundamental Analysis: Investors can combine technical analysis (TA) with fundamental analysis (FA) to maximize their investment returns. While the “True Value” of stocks could be estimated by FA, the entry and exit timings could be fine tuned using technical analysis to benefit from short-term movements in stock prices. Trading Tactics: The trend direction should be analyzed based on the time-horizon of your investments. In general, investors attempt selling close to resistance levels during a downtrend and attempt buying close to support levels during uptrend. Definitions: 1> Simple Moving Average (SMA): A SMA is the average of the closing price of a security for a given period. 2> RSI (Relative Strength Index): A technical momentum indicator that ranges from 0 to 100 and compares the stock’s recent price movements by evaluating recent gains and losses. Stocks with RSI above 70 could be considered overbought and below 30 could be considered oversold. If the RSI falls below 70, it is a bearish signal. On the other hand, if the RSI rises above 30 it is considered bullish. We use a RSI of 14 days. 3> MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence): MACD denotes the relationship between two moving averages, which is used to spot changes in strength, direction, momentum and duration of a stock price trend. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-day EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, called the signal line, is also plotted on top of the MACD, functioning as a trigger for buy/sell signals. The MACD line above the signal line provides a positive signal and vice versa. Contacts Saugata Sarkar Ahmed M.
