Egypt's stock exchange will be closed on Thursday, which has been declared an official holiday for the commemoration of the country's 23 July revolution, the bourse said in a statement on Tuesday.

The country's finance ministry has also announced that it will hold an auction of LE6 billion of 182-day, 364-day treasury bills on Wednesday instead of Thursday, when banks will be closed, state-run news agency MENA reported.

Egypt's benchmark index inched up 0.33 percent on Tuesday after a four-day break from trading during Eid Al-Fitr, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, as market bellwether Commercial International Bank (CIB) rose 0.78 percent to trade at LE55.38.
