Stocks in Egypt have extended the previous day’s drop lower as main index, EGX30 slid 0.89 percent, to 7436.87 points after gap between Egypt's official and unofficial dollar rates hit its widest ever on Thursday. The Egyptian pound further weakened early Thursday between 11.85-12.05 pounds per dollar early on Thursday, more than 35 percent above the central bank's official rate of 8.78. This comes a day after the central bank governor raised the option of a second devaluation of the country's pound. The central bank has been keeping the currency artificially fixed at 8.78 pounds since its devaluation in mid-March. Since the central bank's comments to local media on July 3 about the fixed currency rate being a "mistake", the pound has tumbled in the black market, and economists believe a further devaluation - possibly accompanied by further interest rate hikes - may be imminent.
