Daily turnover of listed stocks dropped to LE312 million as the main EGX30 index fell 0.66 percent to sit at 8,401 points.

The broader EGX70 index shed 0.36 percent.

Egyptians were net-buyers to the tune of LE8.9 million, while non-Arab foreign investors, who accounted for 15 percent of market activity, were net-sellers for LE7.8 million.

The majority of EGX30's shares were down.

Commercial International Bank (CIB) fell 0.91 percent to close at LE37.03.

In the real estate sector, Palm Hills Development Company slid 1.44 percent to trade at LE4.11 a share, TMG Holding slid 1.1 percent to LE8.97 and Six of October Development and Investment (SODIC) shed 0.89 percent to close at LE36.68.

EFG-Hermes, which has seen its share price decline since a tender offer on 20 percent of its shares at LE16 per share fell through last week, was back in the green on Sunday, up 0.48 percent to LE14.69.
