Stocks sliding after anti-Morsi protests
Stocks are sliding in Egypt after large protests across the country yesterday
Egyptian stocks opened Wednesday in the red following anti-Morsi mass rallies on Tuesday afternoon.
The broader based EGX70 index also lost a sizeable 2.3 per cent to sit at 432 points.
More than a hundred thousand people demonstrated Tuesday to demand the annulment of the president's contentious decree in what is considered to be the most serious challenge to face Morsi since he was elected in July.
