The Egyptian Stock Exchange decided to suspend the trading session today, Tuesday, for half an hour, due to the decrease in the EGX100EWI index by 5%, according to what the stock market said in a statement on its website.

The suspension of trading came about an hour and 5 minutes after the start of today’s session, as the stock market indices continued their sharp bleeding, and the main stock market index EGX30 fell by 1.99% to the level of 10328 points.

While the EGX70EWI index for small and medium stocks tumbled by 5.98%, and the broader EGX100EWI index by 5.01%.

The main index of the EGX30 fell at the end of trading yesterday, by 2.45% to the level of 10537 points, due to the selling pressures in stocks, as a result of the declines that occurred over the past days.
