Trading activity within the region will continue to be influenced by geopolitical environment: report

Abu Dhabi was the worst performing index regionally with losses of 6.60%, followed by losses of 3.65% in Dubai, 2.85% in Egypt and 2.65% in Saudi Arabia

Global equity markets were negatively influenced by concerns over the trade tensions between the US and China. Additionally, disappointing economic indicators, especially from China also weighed on investor sentiment during the week.

However, the global markets recovered part of the losses during the second half of the week on the back of growing optimism that Fed is likely to cut rates to support growth going forward.

For the regional markets, the performance during the week was negative across all the eight indexes. The trading activity in the region was driven down by rising concerns over the regional geopolitical environment, outweighing the positive development from MSCI inclusion during the week. Abu Dhabi was the worst performing index regionally with losses of 6.60%, followed by losses of 3.65% in Dubai, 2.85% in Egypt and 2.65% in Saudi Arabia.

Going forward, the trading activity within the region will continue to be influenced by the regional geopolitical environment. Additionally, the developments in global economies, especially the trade tensions between the US and China will also be closely monitored by regional markets.
