Egypt's pound edged up against the dollar at a central bank foreign currency sale on Monday.
The central bank sold $38.8 million at a cut-off price of LE6.8800 per dollar, versus 6.8802 pounds at its last sale on 10 October, the bank said. It had offered $40 million.
The central bank introduced currency sales, held three times a week, at the end of December to help to counter a run on the pound.
It has been allowing the currency to appreciate since the ouster of the Islamist President Mohamed Morsi on 3 July.
