The Palestine Securities Exchange (PSE) launched an e-trading portal on April 24 to allow investors to buy and sell stocks over the internet.
HE Dr Hassan Abu Libdeh, chairman and CEO of the PSE, said that he expected the introduction of e-trading to significantly increase trading volumes on the exchange and to attract new investors from abroad.
He urged member-brokers of the PSE to launch e-trading services for their clients as soon as possible.
Dr Abu Libdeh said: "The PSE provided all necessary technical support for the introduction of e-trading systems to our capital market. We have thoroughly examined and tested the safety and security of the e-trading software."
