TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: QE INDEX AND KEY STOCKS TO CONSIDER
QE Index: Short-Term – Bounce Back
Al Rayan Islamic Index: Short-Term – Bounce Back
Qatar Electricity & Water Co.: Short-Term – Bounce Back
The QE Index advanced higher around 24 points (0.25%) yesterday
extending its rebound on the back of large volumes, which is a
positive development for the buyers. The index is now approaching
its immediate resistance of 9,766.28. If the index manages to surpass
this level on a closing basis, traders may watch out for a test of the
9,800.0-9850.0 levels, while a failure could see a move toward the
9723.80 level. Meanwhile, the RSI suggests a further upside.
The QERI Index gained around 0.44% yesterday to close the session
at 2,798.94. The index cleared the 55-day moving average (currently
at 2,788.98) and the descending trendline, which had restricted its
bullish move in the past. The index is currently trading close to the
2,800.0 psychological level. We believe the current higher push has
enough steam to test and surpass 2,800.0 targeting 2,815.0.
Meanwhile, both indicators are moving upward.
QEWS breached the resistances of the 21-day (currently at
QR157.72) as well as the 55-day (currently at QR158.83) moving
averages and moved higher around 1.21%. Notably, volumes were
also large on the breakout indicating rising buying interest. However,
the stock faces an important resistance of QR159.20. If QEWS can
surpass this level on a closing basis, it may set the stage for a higher
move and test QR162.0. Meanwhile, the RSI is pointing higher.
Gulf International Services: Short-Term – Bounce Back
Industries Qatar: Short-Term – Bounce Back
Milaha: Short-Term – Bounce Back
GISS cleared the resistances of the long-term ascending trendline
and QR57.20 yesterday. Moreover, the stock developed a bullish
Marubozu Candle pattern indicating an advance toward the QR58.50
level, which also happens to be its all-time high. With the RSI moving
up in a bullish manner toward the overbought territory, GISS’
preferred direction seems to be on the upside. However, if the stock
dips below the QR57.20 level it may indicate a false breakout.
IQCD continued its bullish move and breached above the resistance
of QR155.90. The stock has been accelerating on the upside over the
past two days and is in uptrend mode since it breached the QR153.0
level a few days back. We believe IQCD could continue to march
higher and test QR157.40. Moreover, both indicators are moving in
an upward direction and showing no immediate trend reversal signs.
However, a dip below QR155.90 may halt its upmove.
QNNS finally penetrated above the resistance of QR86.0 after
consolidating below it over the past few days. With volumes also
picking up at this level, it appears buyers are stepping in. We believe
a continued rise toward the upper end of the channel at QR87.0 is
possible if QNNS manages to cling on to the QR86.0 level. Moreover,
the RSI is holding strong in the overbought territory, while the MACD
is diverging away from the signal line in a bullish manner.

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.
