TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: QE INDEX AND KEY STOCKS TO CONSIDER
QE Index: Short-Term – Pullback
The QE index after testing the 12,950.0 level over the last three
trading sessions, slipped -0.73% to close at 12,860.34. The index
witnessed a strong opening, touching an intra-day high of 12,968.46,
but was unable to hold on to its gains, as it quickly reversed and
dipped below 12,900.0. With the RSI beginning to move lower, the
index may continue to witness further profit-booking. On the
downside, the index has support near the 12,770.0 level.
Vodafone Qatar: Short-Term – Downmove
VFQS has been experiencing sustained selling over the past few
days and is moving along the descending trendline. We believe the
upmove seems to be in jeopardy until the stock trades below this
descending trendline and it may witness further selling pressure to
test QR16.89. Meanwhile, the RSI is retreating from the overbought
territory, while the MACD is closing the signal line from above
indicating a likely correction.
Al Rayan Islamic Index: Short-Term – Pullback
The QERI Index fell -0.89% to close at 4,237.60 declining for the third
straight session. Moreover, the index breached its support near
4,248.0 as the bears overpowered the bulls. On the downside, the
index has support near 4,200.0. Meanwhile, the RSI is showing signs
of a decline, while the MACD is about to converge with the signal line
into the negative territory. We believe the bears may continue to
dominate the bulls until the index trades below 4,248.0.
Barwa Real Estate Co.: Short-Term – Downmove
BRES penetrated below the support of QR38.40 and has been in
declining mode since topping the rally at QR40.10. Notably, volumes
were also large on the decline which is negative sign. With both the
momentum indicators pointing lower, it seems BRES may continue to
drift lower and test its immediate support at QR37.40, which is also in
proximity to the 21-day moving average. However, if the stock
manages to reclaim QR38.40 it may halt its downmove.
Al Khalij Commercial Bank: Short-Term – Downmove
KCBK has been experiencing a steady decline over the past few days
and continued to drift lower yesterday. We believe although the stock
is trading close to its immediate support of QR22.90, which is also in
proximity to the 21-day moving average it may cling onto it and move
lower to test QR22.49. Meanwhile, the RSI is moving down toward
the mid-line, while the MACD has crossed the signal line into the
negative territory, thus reinforcing our bearish outlook.
United Development Co.: Short-Term – Breakout
UDCD surged 7% & breached its resistances of QR25.29 and
QR25.80 in a single swoop, tagging a new 52-week high. Moreover,
the stock developed a long bullish Marubozu candle pattern indicating
a likely continuation of this upmove. The recent price action and spike
in volumes suggest that the stock may advance further to test
QR27.0. However, a dip below QR25.80 may pull the stock.
Meanwhile, both the indicators are moving up 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 55-
day 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.
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.
