  2. 2. News Economic News  QNB Group: Qatar’s real GDP growth may pick up to 6.8% this year – QNB Group expects Qatar‟s real GDP growth to pick up to 6.8% in 2014 as the implementation of large infrastructure projects accelerates and the fast-growing population boosts domestic demand. QNB said that the acceleration will be due to large infrastructure projects such as the Lusail real estate development, the new Doha Port, the new Hamad International Airport and the Doha Metro Rail project. The non-hydrocarbon sector will continue to be the key growth driver, which is expected to grow from 42% of nominal GDP in 2012 to more than 50% by 2015. The Ministry of Development Planning & Statistics stated that Qatar‟s economic growth accelerated at a buoyant pace of 6.2% in 3Q2013 as compared to 3Q2012. QNB Group said that this growth was spurred by double-digit growth in trade, restaurants & hotels; construction; transport & communication; financial, real estate & business services; as well as domestic services. The hydrocarbon sector expanded to a better-than-expected 1.8% YoY in 3Q2013 due to LNG facilities coming back to full operational capacity after maintenance over last year. Meanwhile, the non-hydrocarbon sector grew 9.5% YoY 3Q2013, driven by a strong growth in services.

  4. 4. TECHNICAL ANALYSIS OF THE QE INDEX Source: Bloomberg The QE Index continued its upward momentum tagging a series of new 52-week highs last week and witnessed gains on every single day, registering impressive gains of around 328 points. The bulls were in full charge as the index breached the 10,600.0, 10,700.0 and 10,800.0 psychological levels ensuring its strong upmove. The index also managed to penetrate above the ascending trendline resistance, which had restricted its bullish move in the past indicating a positive sign. We believe the index has been in strong uptrend mode since forming a base near the 10,320.0 level and may continue its bullish run, targeting the 10,900.0-11,000.0 levels. If the index sustains above this levels, a continued rise and a possibility of a further rally may not be ruled out. The recent uptrend has been sharp, which is keeping the RSI in perpetual overbought state; however, it does not seem to be affecting the index‟s current performance. Meanwhile, the MACD is diverging away from the signal line and is moving up in a bullish manner showing no immediate trend reversal signs, indicating that this rally may not fizzle out soon. On the flip side, traders may need to keep a close watch for support near the ascending trendline, as any dip below this level may result in the index drifting toward the 10,700.0 level. 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
