“due to the high profits that people have been able to generate over the past year you may see continuous selling pressure on the market” mohammed ali yasin managing director of nbad securities was quoted by bloomberg as saying.

“breaking the 5000 level yesterday was a negative signal” and there could be support at 4750 he said.
