Most major Gulf stocks were up; Qatar trades flat
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 16 - 01 - 2020

Most major Gulf stock markets were green in early trading on Thursday, led by their financial stocks amid rising oil prices, while the Qatar market traded flat as bank and industrial shares moved sideways.
Oil prices rose on Thursday after the signing of an initial Sino-U.S. trade deal that sets the stage for a surge in Chinese purchases of American energy products, while U.S. crude inventories fell more than expected.
Saudi Arabia's index .TASI rose 0.3% with National Commercial Bank 1180.SE, the kingdom's largest lender, adding 0.4% and Samba Financial Group 1090.SE increasing 0.6%.
Middle Eastern fund managers plan to increase investments in Saudi Arabia, while keeping exposure in the rest of the region at current levels, according to a Reuters poll.
