• Through the Supporting of the Leading Stocks, Saudi market is up 1.3% despite weak liquidity


    Saudi shares recovered "green" in yesterday's trading supported by the leaders to close at 7425 points, winning 98 points, 1.3 percent. The rise came mainly from the banking and basic materials sectors. The rebound came from the 50-day average, which constitutes support for the index. However, the chances of a return to decline remain as long as the market traded below 7500 points in light of the liquidity weakness. Only 3 percent of the session yesterday (barely three billion riyals) showed continued reluctance of some dealers on the market, after it was recorded four billion riyals earlier. The market is still waiting for unfinished financial results and will be a key driver for the market in the coming period.
