Egypt's pound strengthens at cbank currency sale

Cairo, October 21, 2013

Egypt's pound edged stronger at a central bank foreign currency sale on Monday.

The central bank sold $38.8 million with a cut-off price of 6.8800 Egyptian pounds per dollar versus 6.8802 pounds at its last sale on October 10, 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 army ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi on July 3. - Reuters
