The Egyptian Exchange (EGX) lost during Sunday 18/11/2012 trading about ten billion Egyptian pounds on the backdrop of incidents at the local and regional levels including the latest developments in Gaza and the Assuit train-bus crash as well as the consecutive withdrawal of members of the constitution's Constituent Assembly.
