News Economic News  QNB Group: Qatar international reserves touch $41.9bn in January – A new study has shown that Qatar‟s international reserves surged by 22.2% YoY to reach a total of $41.9bn in January 2014, reflecting the country‟s strong current account surplus and lower capital outflows. According to QNB Group, the country‟s international reserves had stood at $34.3bn in January 2013. While the balance of payments data for 2013 are yet to be released, the country‟s current account is expected to have registered a strong surplus due to the large hydrocarbon exports offsetting growing imports. Qatar‟s foreign reserves have been rising steadily over the years due to large current account surpluses. Going forward, QNB Group expects Qatar‟s reserves to continue rising in 2014. (Gulf-Times.com)  QNB Group: Qatar’s population growth to be one of world’s highest – According to a report by QNB Group, Qatar‟s forecasted average population growth of 10.5% for 2014 will be one of the world‟s highest rates. Qatar‟s population grew by 10.4% YoY in February to reach 2.12mn. Population growth in recent months has been driven by the large ramp up in infrastructure spending in preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. QNB Group said that the larger population will enable higher economic growth by boosting aggregate demand and investment in housing and services. Planned heavy investments in major projects in 2014 are likely to accelerate economic growth, which could lead to certain supply bottlenecks, pushing up prices somewhat. (Gulf-Times.com)  QCB caps bonuses for bank board members – The Qatar Central Bank (QCB) is capping bonuses for board members of commercial banks in the country. This is a part of the Emir's objective to undertake a number of steps to spread the country's wealth more widely among all Qataris. The maximum annual bonus for a bank chairman in Qatar has been set at QR2mn ($550,000), while the cap for a board member is QR1.5mn. Bonuses can only be granted if a bank makes a net profit and 5% of a bank's capital has to be distributed among investors. No bonuses can be distributed without the QCB's approval. (Gulf-Times.com)  New Port Project set for early completion – According to a top official, quick progress is being made in the construction of the New Port Project (NPP) and more than 35% of the work has been completed as of now. The project consists of the new port, a naval base for the Emiri Naval Force and Qatar Economic Zone 3. Situated 24 kilometers south of Doha, the entire cost for the project is estimated at QR27bn. With an area of 26.5 square kilometer, a major part of the project is reclaimed land. (Gulf-Times.com)  S&P: Qatar may not issue long-term debt in 2014 – Standard & Poor‟s (S&P) said that Qatar is not expected to issue any long-term debt in 2014 even as the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region is slated to witness borrowings of around $56bn. In general, sovereign debt capital markets are relatively underdeveloped in the GCC and S&P said it does not expect Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Qatar, or Saudi Arabia to issue longterm debt in 2014. S&P viewed that financing these states‟ large investment programs could result in weaker government balances, but as long as oil prices remain high, it expects them to continue to post fiscal surpluses. However, S&P expects that smaller GCC countries such as Oman and Bahrain to issue commercial debt in the market. (Gulf-Times.com) Market & Corporate News  ORDS reports QR510mn net profit in 4Q2013 - Ooredoo Group (ORDS) reported a net profit of QR510.0mn for 4Q2013, up by 51.2% on a QoQ basis due to a drop in FX Losses.

FY2013 revenue reached QR33.9bn, reflecting a modest YoY increase of 1.1%. In line with the decline in net profit, EPS decreased to QR8.05 in FY2013 compared to QR9.89 in FY2012.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS OF THE QE INDEX Source: Bloomberg The QE Index continued its slide for the second consecutive week losing around 165 points. The index started the curtailed week on a bearish note and caved under heavy selling pressure on Wednesday; it breached the important supports of the 21-day moving average and the 11,400.0 psychological level suffering its largest single day loss in the past six months. However, Thursday was a different day as the index witnessed a gap-up opening and erased all its Wednesday‟s losses, reclaiming the 11,400.0, the 21-day moving average and 11,600.0 levels within one trading session as bulls were back in action. Technically, the index has strong support near 11,520.0. The medium-term trend is up and intact until it holds onto the support of the 11,520.0 level. A continued push toward 11,660.0 is possible considering the current higher push. Moreover, a rise above this level may indicate that the correction is over and further confirms the bullish move toward the 11,750.0-11,800.0 levels. On the flip side a drop below the 21-day moving average as well as the 11,520.0 levels will get traders thinking that the index may continue its downmove signaling a bearish sign. Meanwhile, both indicators are providing mixed signals suggesting the likely continuation of volatility. DEFINITIONS OF KEY TERMS USED IN TECHNICAL ANALYSIS RSI (Relative Strength Index) indicator – RSI is a momentum oscillator that measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI oscillates between 0 to 100. The index is deemed to be overbought once the RSI approaches the 70 level, indicating that a correction is likely. On the other hand, if the RSI approaches 30, it is an indication that the index may be getting oversold and therefore likely to bounce back. MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) indicator – The indicator consists of the MACD line and a signal line. The divergence or the convergence of the MACD line with the signal line indicates the strength in the momentum during the uptrend or downtrend, as the case may be. When the MACD crosses the signal line from below and trades above it, it gives a positive indication. The reverse is the situation for a bearish trend. Candlestick chart – A candlestick chart is a price chart that displays the high, low, open, and close for a security. The „body‟ of the chart is portion between the open and close price, while the high and low intraday movements form the „shadow‟. The candlestick may represent any time frame. We use a one-day candlestick chart (every candlestick represents one trading day) in our analysis. Doji candlestick pattern – A Doji candlestick is formed when a security's open and close are practically equal. The pattern indicates indecisiveness, and based on preceding price actions and future confirmation, may indicate a bullish or bearish trend reversal. Shooting Star/Inverted Hammer candlestick patterns – These candlestick patterns have a small real body (open price and close price are near to each other), and a long upper shadow (large intraday movement on the upside). The Shooting Star is a bearish reversal pattern that forms after a rally. The Inverted Hammer looks exactly like a Shooting Star, but forms after a downtrend. Inverted Hammers represent a potential bullish trend reversal. Page 4 of 5
