TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: QE INDEX AND KEY STOCKS TO CONSIDER
QE Index: Short-Term – Neutral
Al Rayan Islamic Index: Short-Term – Neutral
Qatar Insurance: Short-Term – Bounce Back
After consolidating near the descending trendline in the past few
days, the QE Index declined below the 21-day moving average
(currently at 9,717.08) to close at 9,693.93. If the index breaks to the
downside, a decline below 9,669.06 may prompt it to test the 9,600
psychological level. However, if the index moves above the 21-day
moving average, it may test 9,734.82. The RSI is moving down, while
the MACD is about to cross the signal line into negative territory.
The QERI Index fell on Wednesday, but found support at the 21-day
moving average (currently at 2,788.37) and closed the session at the
2,793.84 level. If the index holds the current level, it may move higher
and test the resistance level of 2,815.0. However, a decline below the
descending trendline may prompt the index to test the 21-day moving
average. Both the RSI and MACD are moving downward.
QATI respected the support of QR61.34 and rose by 0.81% to close
the session at QR62.00. The stock has breached the resistance of
QR61.90 and the ascending triangle with higher volumes, indicating
strength in price action. We believe if the stock clings on to the current
level on a closing basis, it may advance further to test QR62.50. The
MACD is diverging away from the signal line in a bullish manner,
while the RSI is moving higher, supporting a positive outlook.
Industries Qatar: Short-Term – Pull Back
Masraf Al Rayan: Short-Term – Bounce Back
Doha Bank: Short-Term – Pull Back
After consolidating in the range of QR151.0 - QR153.0, IQCD
developed a bearish Marubozu pattern, which indicates that the stock
may decline from the current level. The fall in the stock has been
supported by increasing volumes, indicating weakness. If the stock
declines below QR150.90, it may pull down further to test the
QR149.09 level or else it has bullish implications. Moreover, the RSI
is moving down, thus supporting our bearish outlook.
After breaching the 21-day and 55-day moving averages (currently
near QR29.10) on Tuesday, MARK broke above the symmetrical
triangle and cleared the resistance of QR29.40. Since the move
occurred on higher volumes as compared to previous sessions, we
expect the stock to test QR29.65. Meanwhile, both momentum
indicators are moving upward. However, a move below QR29.23,
would suggest that this was a false breakout.
DHBK formed a bearish Marubozu pattern and fell by 1.1% to close
the session at QR54.40. The bearish candle pattern and the relatively
higher volumes on the decline suggest weakness in the stock. With
both the RSI and MACD lines pointing down, the stock’s preferred
direction appears to be on the downside, which may test the 55-day
moving average (currently at QR53.82) if it fails to hold its immediate
support of 21-day moving average (currently at QR54.30).

Overall Methodology: The charts and descriptions on Page 1 provide an indicative view of the future direction of the equities mentioned. 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
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.
Simple Moving Average (SMA): A SMA is the average of the closing price of a security for a given period.
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.
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.
