Concerning technical reasons?
Or is the preoccupation with security is still in control of the investment?
Judge raised: Yes, my dear, thank you, of course, at the outset I wish to point out that trading volume was at the beginning in 2006 less than 2007, in 2007 trading volume was slightly larger, but still does not constitute the required size, and the reason for this: First, as you know that capital Iraqi funds have migrated abroad for many reasons, not to mention that the market manual method used in circulation that any share certificate or certificate of ownership of shares is issued only after several days up to two weeks from the date of purchase.
This, of course, affect the investor because the investor always wished that drives the portfolio and invested day to day, and our perception that the market will improve in the second half of this year, where there are several reasons, the market is now moving towards the use of electronic automation will be a sophisticated electronic system, in addition to that Central Bank of Iraq in his policy for the second half reduced the interest rates and this reduction will certainly draw the volume of investment or the volume of money supply used by investors of civil banks into the market.
Of course, this was not in the first half than in 2007.
In the first half were higher interest rates, central bank head toward the reduction, and we expect him towards the reduction and will withdraw the money supply to the market.

Hamdan Jerjaoi: I want to talk here about the pilot sectors in the market, if we look at the dealings of this year, we find that the banking sector took the largest share of transactions followed the service sector and industry, why the banking sector specifically, without other sectors?
أثير القاضي: نعم.
Judge raised: Yes.
Of course, the banking sector has witnessed over the past few years a marked improvement and evolved considerably, and this development due to the ambitious directors of those banks to develop their work, to see that many of these banks have increased their capital and aims to increase more, in addition to these banks started trading of foreign banks Where services are services launched recently in Iraqi banks, credit services to small and medium For instance, this service were not previously known, there are some corporate backing to the banking sector such as the newly established Iraqi company for banking guarantees, a guarantor of loans, which used to guarantee loans granted by Before banks, it is worth noting also that there is the newly founded company called company funds for electronic banking services, the company expect to play a leading role in introducing new services, where will be able to use Iraqi or foreign Visa or Master Card or any type of payment cards ..
