UAE. Global markets continued their upward trend last week, with no signs of slowing down, recording all-time highs.

Regional markets followed the same path with all of the main indices ending the week higher with the exception of Oman that was down by -1.2% over the week.

On a weekly basis, Saudi came in as the best performing index among its peers with a gain of +2.7%, followed by Kuwait and Bahrain each advancing by +1.2%, Egypt +1.1%, Dubai +1.0% and Abu Dhabi +0.7%. Crude Oil is still trading near the USD70 mark, ending last week at USD 68.61 per barrel.

The coming period will be influenced by earnings’ releases and dividends payments for most of the companies in the region, which will have a positive effect on the trading activities.
